NSA Kicks off Foxfield Jump Season


Sarah Andrew

The Foxfield Races, the first of three fall National Steeplechase Association to run in October, kicks off Sunday in Charlottesville, Va. The card, consisting of seven races–five over hurdles and two on the flat–carries purses totaling $55,000. Post time is 12:30 p.m.

The Foxfield Races mark the first 2020 NSA event that will permit owners, with horse entered, to attend, albeit with restrictions. Owners will be required to remain in a designated area for the entire afternoon; no one may cross the course or go to the paddock or barn area; and masks are required. In addition, those attending must fill out and present a health questionnaire at the gate and have their temperatures taken. No food or beverages will be provided; attendees must bring their own. Alcohol is prohibited. Because of restrictions due to COVID-19, the meet will take place without fans.
