Dear Foxfield Racing Fans,

We are pleased to announce The Foxfield Races will run our fall race meet on Sunday, October 4, 2020!  Unfortunately due to the Covid-19 regulations of Albemarle County and the Commonwealth of Va., we will be required to run this fall’s race meet without spectators.  This was adopted by the Albemarle Board of Supervisors at their meeting on September 4th. We sincerely thank them for their support.

Owners, trainers, horsemen, riders, and officials will be granted access to the property for the fall race meet.  The Foxfield Races will follow strict social distancing regulations. We are committed to following recommended safety measures as set by the Centers for Disease Control, in addition to state and local officials.

We are very saddened that our many supporters and fans will not be able to attend the fall race meet.  However, the races will be live streamed through the NSA web site.  We will post that information as soon as we have more details to share with you.

We look forward to hosting all our fans at the spring races in April, if the pandemic allows. We are planning on seeing you then.

Please continue to check our website, and all of our social media sites for updates. For questions or concerns, please email
