Dates Approved For Spring 2024 In Virginia

Harness racing at Shenandoah Downs

The Virginia Racing Commission approved 2024 spring harness dates for Shenandoah Downs at its Dec. 6 meeting in New Kent.

The Woodstock oval’s seven-week season will run from April 6-May 19 with race cards scheduled every Saturday and Sunday at 1:05 p.m. The traditional fall meet will take place from Sept. 14 -Oct. 27 pending VRC approval. A four-day meet at the Shenandoah County Fair will run from Aug. 28-31.

The track offered spring racing for the first time ever this year and will continue with a nearly identical plan in 2024. Racing fans in the Shenandoah Valley were able to wager on the Kentucky Derby in conjunction with the harness card this past May, and with the approved spring dates next year will be able to wager both the Derby and Preakness.

The Shenandoah Downs simulcast signal will again be available via Twinspires, TVG, Xpressbet and NYRAbets and at tracks/OTBs around the country.

For horsemen, racing applications will be available beginning Feb. 1 at
