Virginia Gold Cup

Please note: This event has already occurred.
If the nearly 600-mile drive from D.C. to Churchill Downs in Louisville for the Kentucky Derby isn't in the cards on Saturday, the 87th running of the Virginia Gold Cup is a wonderful alternative for horse racing lovers -- or guys and gals just looking for an excuse to wear seersucker suits and extravagant hats. Gates open at 10 a.m. and the sixth and final race of the day is at 4:30 p.m.
