Colonial Downs

Just east of Richmond in New Kent, Colonial Downs was Virginia's only grass and dirt horse racing track.  The track closed after the 2013 harness racing season due to a conflict between track management and the Virginia Horsemen's Association over racing dates.

The track petitioned to return in 2015 with a new horsemen's association.
