It's a new date, new layout and new organizers for a Richmond
tradition this weekend -- the running of the Strawberry Hill races!
The 2012 racing season will start with the 80th edition of the Strawberry Hill Races on Saturday, June 2.
Colonial Downs is now the official organizer and host of the
Strawberry Hill Races, previously run by SFVA Inc., which announced
bankruptcy earlier this year. Colonial Downs quickly stepped up to the
plate to take over the running of the Strawberry Hill Races.
The new date -- June 2 -- coincides with the start of Colonial Downs’
regular term. Previously held in May, the Strawberry Hill races were
moved to coincide with the kick-off of Colonial Down's steeplechase
