Hot Rize Upsets Virginia Gold Cup
(NSA.com) In front of an overflow crowd, Holston Hall’s Hot Rize took the lead before the final fence of the $75,000 Virginia Gold Cup and fought off a determined challenge by Organisateur to win by three-quarters of a length at Great Meadow Race Course in The Plains, Va., on Saturday, May 3.
Kinross Farm’s Old Timer finished third in Virginia’s richest race, and 2013 winner Grinding Speed took the fourth spot in the 89th running of the four-mile timber classic. Hot Rize ran the distance in 9:20.80 on ground rated as good.
