Virginia Horsemen Moving On

Where will Virginia horsemen be racing this year now that negotiations between the Virginia Equine Alliance and Colonial Downs have broken off?

As of now, there is an agreement in principal to hold a four day meeting at Oak Ridge Estate Racetrack in Nelson County (where a flat meet over a turf course may be
ld in 2016) and  are in discussions for a four day meet at the Shenadoah County Fair in Woodstock with the potential of additional dates there.  Of course, this is preliminary but the main point is the VHHA is moving ahead without Colonial Downs.
