No, better, much better!

The Virginia Gold Cup has partnered up with Lindy Promotions, Inc. to provide bus transportation and a pre-party package from three Metro locations in the D.C. region.

“This year, Lindy Promotions has been exclusively selected to organize The Official Gold Cup Bus Trip,” states Dr. William Allison, Virginia Gold Cup race chairman. Catch a ride to the races on the bus in the morning and eliminate the worry about driving and parking. Buses will depart from three Metro accessible bars in Bethesda (Tommy Joe’s on the Red Line), Arlington (Front Page Arlington on the Orange Line), and D.C. (Regional Food and Drink on the Red Line), and packages will feature pre- and post-bus trip specials.

Each ticket includes round trip bus transportation, admission to the races and reserved bus parking close to the north rail. Ticket price is currently $40 increasing as the race approaches so get your tickets early. Bus tickets to Gold Cup must be booked in advance. To order tickets, visit the Lindy Promotions web site
and click on “Purchase a Seat” or call Lindy Promotions at 301.652.7712.
The Virginia Gold Cup Races takes place on Saturday, May 3 at Great Meadow in The Plains, Virginia. The setting is truly spectacular in the heart of Virginia horse country with the Blue Ridge Mountains serving as the backdrop. Event gates open at 10 am with pre-race entertainment starting at 11 am including terrier races, the Junior Field Master Chase for young riders, and the Blackwater Parachute Team with the National Anthem being sung by former American Idol contestant, Travis Tucker.
The first of six horse races gets underway at 1:30 pm. General admission car passes are $75 in advance, $85 the week of the race (allows entry of car and up to 6 occupants) or buy a bus ticket and let Virginia Gold Cup do the driving.
