Enjoy an afternoon of steeplechase racing & tailgating at the 2nd annual Dogwood Classic. Colonial Downs plays host to this unique event, where horses compete over jumps on the Secretariat Turf Course, while tailgating takes place on the outer 1 1/4 miles dirt track, providing a great view of the equine action for all tailgaters. This is quickly becoming one of Central Virginia's first rites of spring and is a big social event.

Admission Fee: $10 general admission; reserved vehicle tailgating spots along the rail are $125 or $200 based on location & include 6 admission tickets.
