Colonial Downs opens track burning event April 11
NEW KENT – Each year, the track's Secretariat turf course is strategically set on fire to quickly remove dead "cover" and drive nutrients into the ground so the grass comes back greener and more lush in time for the upcoming summer racing season. For the first time ever, this event is open to the public and there will be fire-themed activities! Bring your camera for this unique spectacular!
