The annual Virginia Gold Cup is about many different things to different people, but for the majority of the crowd clothes matters.   For most, a great deal of effort goes into creating the right Gold Cup outfit with the right accessories be it a hat for the ladies or a tie or sunglasses for the guys.

Mistakes are made -- the most common being spiked heels which do little more than aerate the lovely grass at Great Meadow while bogging down the beaux femmes who insist on wearing them...

The other common error is “over reaching.”

Don’t over reach.
