    The track has been closed for the past couple of years. The word is that it will not reopen. It was a very nice track and the Virginia horse community was sad to see it gone.  more »

    The track layout was great, easy to navigate and get from track to paddock instead of those ridiculous box seats, a nice track for taking pictures. Never bought tickets higher than general admission because there was no need to. Lots of nice promo days and events including a nice behind the scenes tour. Wonderful memories of Lentenor, Action Andy, Paddy O Prado, Sheldon Russell, and more. Looking forward to the day racing returns.

    It's closed. I wish they would do something with the property. Nobody in Virginia cares about horse racing. Turn it into a casino or race track

    Rated as one of the best small tracks in the United States and my experience there far exceeds the billing. Cannot wait to return!
