    Second Annual Fall Harness Season At Shenandoah Downs Kicks Off Saturday September 16th 

    The second season of pari-mutuel harness racing at Shenandoah Downs is set to commence on Saturday September 16th and another five week season is planned. The meet will continue every Saturday and Sunday at 1 PM through October 15th. Gates open at 11 AM on race days.

    Pacers and trotters will compete in ten races each afternoon and a race generally goes off every 20 minutes. The half mile oval, which was completely renovated a year ago, recently played host to four days of Shenandoah County Fair harness races (non-betting).  This was the 100th anniversary season of Fair racing at the grounds in Woodstock, which is located halfway between Winchester and Harrisonburg off I-81 at Exit 283.

    Featured event this meet is the Virginia Breeders Championship races for two and three year olds, which will take place during the first two weekends. Two year old finals are scheduled for Saturday September 16th while the three year old finals are set for Sunday September 24th. A total of eight divisional titles are up for grabs and over $300,000 (estimated) in purse monies will be awarded.

    The fall season will offer free parking and admission for fans every race day. Last year, there was a combination of paid and free admission days. Betting windows are conveniently located in the grandstand. Win, place, show, exacta and trifecta bets are available each race and can be placed with a teller or via a self bet terminal. Programs that offer past performance information on all the horses can be purchased for $1.00. A free Tip Sheet will be provided with each program.  

    This year, the harness races will be streamed live, free of charge, on two different websites --- www.shenandoahdowns.com and www.virginahorseracing.com

    In addition to betting at the track, Shenandoah Downs wagering will be available at both Richmond area Off Track Betting (OTB) Centers operated by the Virginia Equine Alliance (VEA) for the first time. "It's a nice step in terms of growth and exposure," said Communications Director Darrell Wood. "If an out of town owner wants to enter their horse in a race but can't attend in person, they can now watch the race live via our website. And race fans in Central Virginia can visit the Breakers OTB or Ponies & Pints OTB and bet the Shenandoah races via simulcast."

    Every Saturday will feature a different themed festival. Hops 'n Hooves, a craft beer tasting event, kicks off the slate on September 16th followed by a Food Truck Festival on September 23rd. The popular Wine & Trotter Festival is on September 30th and features tastings from Shenandoah Valley wineries. Seafest, where various seafood related vendors are on premise, is on October 7th and Autumnfest highlights closing weekend on October 14th. The latter event is a heritage themed festival that includes a barbecue tasting competition with 40 contestants, live music, log splitting competitions and more.

    There are separate admission charges to access the Autumnfest, Wine & Trotter, and Hops 'n Hooves sampling areas at Shenandoah Downs but general admission to the harness races is free each day. Details are at shenandoahdowns.com and virginiahorseracing.com.

    We at Response are planning a month-long “Keep the Light Burning” campaign to bring the problem of domestic violence to the awareness of our community.  In thinking about all of our community supporters, your organization came to mind; we know that without the support of agencies/organizations like yours our work would be much more difficult and less effective.

    Since October is Domestic Violence Awareness month, we would like to start the month off with an awareness walk on Monday, October 2, in Woodstock at 7:00.  The walk will begin by our supporters gathering at the town gazebo, distributing electronic candles, and then we will walk through town.   We welcome and encourage any members of your organization to walk with us!

    As part of this campaign, throughout the month of October we will be posting photos on our Facebook page of supporters holding our “Keep the Light Burning” poster; we would love to come to your place of business during September and take a photo of your employees/members holding this sign to show support for our mission.  Just reply to Lynn McKee at volcoor@shentel.net or call 459-5599 to set up a time for a photoshoot!

    We at Response believe that domestic violence is everybody’s business; thank you in advance for helping to make our community a safer place for all!
