Colonial’s Wednesday Race Card Taken Off the Turf; Post Time Moved Up To 5:00 PM
Posted on August 5th, 2020
Races tonight (Wednesday) at Colonial Downs will be taken off the turf and held over the dirt track, and post time has been moved up to 5:00 PM from its originally scheduled 5:30 PM start time.
Seven of the nine races were scheduled to be run over Colonial’s Secretariat Turf Course — the second, and fourth through ninth. The first and third had already been scheduled to run on dirt.
Colonial’s dirt oval is 1 1/4 miles around, second largest in the country next to Belmont.
