Foxfield Fall Races Livestream

Foxfield Fall Races Livestream Set to Replace Usual Gathering due to COVID Pandemic

The National Steeplechase Association (NSA) has announced The Foxfield Fall Races Livestream will be available on Sunday, October 4 as the Charlottesville, VA-based fixture will go ahead behind closed doors under strict health and safety protocols for those in attendance.

In making the announcement, NSA President Al Griffin said,

This year has provided plenty of challenges for our sport, yet we continue to persevere. Despite the onerous regulations and protocols,  were able to run all of our races at Saratoga for the first time in a long while.  We are in the process of indoctrinating a great group of young jockeys to American Steeplechasing this fall.  Everyone is stepping up and making the most of our limited opportunities. Our fall live streaming opportunity is due to the generosity of our sponsors:  Brown Advisory, Charleston Post and Courier Newspaper, Bruton Street (Charlie Fenwick, Charlie Noell, Mike Hankin) and The Virginia Equine Alliance. This unprecedented support will allow us all to view steeplechasing at a time when spectators are not allowed at the race meets.”

Steeplechasing enthusiasts are encouraged to Livestream here at 12:30 p.m. EST. The races offer opportunities for a broad swath of the steeplechase community’s horses in training.

The Foxfield Fall Races will feature seven races with the sport’s prominent owner/trainer/jockey teams in the field. Although the races will be run without spectators, NSA owners and other essential horsemen and officials will be allowed on the property.
