International Gold Cup Steeplechase
The famous International Gold Cup, one of the largest steeplechase events in the U.S., returns to Great Meadow on Saturday, Oct. 23. Gates open at 10 a.m. with the first race at 12:30 p.m. Last year, the event was held without spectators and was live streamed. This year, limited tailgate packages and tents are available and are now on sale.
As with the spring, Virginia Gold Cup races, rail spaces will be spread out. Those attending must purchase a rail spot that comes with 10 tickets (10 wristbands, one reserved tailgate car pass and two general admission car passes.) The cost is $895 for a space along the racecourse fence and $795 for rail spaces one row back from the rail in either north or south areas. A limited number of spaces are available on Members Hill for $795. No individual tickets will be sold.
Tailgate packages are available and purchases can only be made by calling 540-347-2612. A limited number of group and corporate tents are also available on Members Hill.
