Christopher T. Chenery will be inducted into the National Racing Hall of Fame for his work founding Meadow Stable in Caroline County and establishing bloodlines that produced the legendary Triple Crown champion Secretariat.
The recently announced Secretariat Heritage Center will get off to a running start on May 4.
On June 9, a strapping chestnut colt named Justify sprang out of the starting gate in the Belmont Stakes and did not relinquish his lead, becoming the 13th Triple Crown winner in the competition’s 99-year history.
Just in time for the May 5 Kentucky Derby, The Meadow Event Park has installed an exhibit called “Salute to Secretariat—Virginia’s Triple Crown Legend” in the Main Street Station gallery.
The first Derby Day at the Meadow promises much more than mint juleps.
