MIDDLEBURG HORSE RACES ON SATURDAY, APRIL 20th
Directions to Glenwood Park: Take Route 50 West heading to Gilberts corner and straight on to Middleburg. Once in the center of Middleburg (at the only traffic light) turn north on Route 626 at the Red Fox Inn. The entrance to Glenwood Park is one (1) mile on the right. We are in Lot #37 and have the 2 front rows. You will be directed as to where to park by the Association at the time of the event.
We will set up picnic tables, canopy and champagne, wine, beer and soft drinks. Everyone, please bring a picnic food to share. The event is where both ladies and gentlemen can dress up if you so wish but is not required! Ladies, wear your pretty hats and sunglasses, give your best impression of Jackie O. We will have prizes for best ladies hat judged by the guys! The idea is to have fun and enjoy a Spring day at the races.
The ticket price is $13.00 per person for this event, which includes the Amazon fee. I already have the picnic space for the group, which cost $250.00 per space. The proceeds actually go to The Loudoun Hospital Center and the Glenwood Park Trust. (I believe there is a small additional fee to enter the grounds of $15.00 per person.
The 92nd Running of the Middleburg Spring Races consists of 7 races on different course set-ups, with several featuring a variety of jumps and hurdles. Post time for the first race is 1:00pm, but the gates will open at 10:00am. It really is all about the tailgating, the ladies and their awesome hats and their sundresses, the food, the wine etc. etc.
On the website it states that the races run rain or shine and that no refunds are available, The $250 fee paid for each of the Picnic Parking spots is non-refundable. We have 2 picnic spots. If you decide not to attend the event because of weather, please understand that the $13 fee is non-refundable. If there is someone on the waiting list and you change your mind, then maybe you can coordinate with the person to take your spot.
