The Scouting Report

From Saturday, June 8, through Saturday, July 13, the Thoroughbred Meet features eight races nightly on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday beginning at 6 p.m. Seated within the air-conditioned Jockey Club, spectators can get a birds-eye view of the race while glancing at a program with information on each horse competing in all races throughout the day—complete with expert tips that help make an informed decision on where to place that $2 bet.

The Club fills stomachs while tableside televisions keep diners attune to what’s happening on the track. In addition, an exclusive tour grants guests a behind-the-scenes look at the horseracing lifestyle, allowing them to ask experts about the sacred bond between thoroughbred and jockey and whether humans can metabolize hay.

Colonial Downs Racetrack

Home of the Virginia Derby each summer, Colonial Downs Racetrack upholds the age old Southern tradition of horse racing with a pair of impressive tracks. At 180 feet wide, the Secretariat Turf Course plays host to the derby as well as other summer thoroughbred races. Measuring at 1.25 miles, the outside dirt track is the second largest in the country—dwarfed only by Belmont Park— and plays host the pacers and trotters in the fall harness races. As Virginia's only site for pari-mutuel betting, Colonial Downs attracts droves of racing fans and wandering derby hats throughout the season. Once inside the gates, visitors can enjoy the sights and sounds from the outdoor grandstand or relax in one of Colonial Downs' club and suite seating options, most of which offer dining and betting services, TVs linked to off-track races, and unobstructed birds-eye views of either track outside.
