About Us

Horses have been part of the Virginia way of life since our earliest days and have brought the state international attention. Now, horses are poised to help write another great chapter in Virginia’s story, with the return of competitive thoroughbred horse racing to Colonial Downs.

The Virginia Horse Racing Coalition is a coalition of groups, organizations, businesses and individuals who are dedicated to ensuring that world-class horse racing succeeds at Colonial Downs, and brings with it the good jobs, economic development, and tax revenue our Commonwealth needs.
