VIrginia Gold Cup

Today we enjoyed the 87th running of the famous Virginia Gold Cup steeplechase race, at Great Meadow in The Plains, Virginia. The Virginia Gold Cup is a grand spring tradition  since 1922 and attended by over 50,000 spectators, this race is one of the largest and most popular sporting events in the greater Washington metropolitan area.

Race day featured six hurdle and timber horses races; Jack Russell Terrier races; tent, tailgate and hat contests; and vendor booths for shopping. My husband and I attended last year and now its became part of our social calendar and a lot of fun was had by all, with awesome friends and  great food catered by Superb Cuisines.
