Very good. I spend a week in Williamsburg at least once every other year. It was sad to be there last November without option to spend an afternoon at Colonial Downs.

Virginia is one of many states trending smartly.

Good news - an opening now hopefully horsemen and "tracks" can get over themselves and bring the industry back!

Is Colonial still in suitable condition for racing? What is its ownership situation?

glad to hear it... now if only some wealthy racing folk wanted to buy back/revitalize Blue Bonnets for tb racing I'd be the happiest degenerate there is. :lol:
