Secretariat Colonial Downs Day at the Races - Aug. 30

Big Red fans near and far are invited to join the team to enjoy all the action taking place on the historic Secretariat Turf Course at Colonial Downs in New Kent, Virginia.

The event kicks off with a luncheon program at the track’s exclusive fourth floor clubhouse Sky Suites featuring authors Kate Tweedy and Leeanne Ladin and sculptor Jocelyn Russell. They will host an exploratory conversation about commemorating Secretariat with his own bronze statue in his birth state.

Gates open at 11:45 p.m. A luncheon buffet and cash bar will be available throughout the majority of the day, which also includes a book-signing, silent auction and an afternoon of live racing with first call to post at 1:45 p.m.

Please note: Seating for this event is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. No physical tickets are necessary for this event. Upon your arrival at the track, please proceed to the 4th Floor for check-in and wrist-banding. We look forward to seeing you soon!
