Colonial Downs offers loan to new horsemen group to ensure live racing
Colonial Downs continued its commitment to Virginia’s thoroughbred racing industry and provided the Virginia Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association (VHBPA) a new 25-day racing proposal in response to the Virginia Racing Commission’s order of 25 days of thoroughbred racing for 2014. Similar to the VHBPA’s response to Colonial Downs’ earlier 25-day proposal, the VHBPA rejected the new proposal. As a consequence, Colonial Downs has suspended further negotiations with the VHBPA.
