Sunday, September 28 is Family Day at the Foxfield Races. The fall steeplechase meet at the Foxfield Steeplechase course is always focused on families. There is the same exciting steeplechase racing as you find at the spring race, but the spectator activities are focused on families.
In addition to the thrill of watching the beautiful thoroughbred horses race over jumps, there are additional activities of interest to the entire family. These include the Jack Russell Terrier Races, a walk of the race course, pony rides, sky divers, the Albemarle Pipe & Drum Corps, and a parade of the Farmington Beagles. Don't miss the Foxden Children's Activities Tent.
The beneficiary of the Foxfield Fall Races is Kid Pan Alley.
Tickets and parking are only sold in advance. For information or to buy tickets call 434 293-9501 or go to the Foxfield website.
The Foxfield Race Course is located on Garth Road just a few miles west of Charlottesville, Virginia. While you are in town for the races, take the opportunity to tour the scenic Virginia countryside. If you are interested in finding the perfect Albemarle horse farm or Charlottesville country home, I would love to show you what is currently available.
