Here is a statement from the Willowdale Steeplechase.
The 28th Running of the Willowdale Steeplechase – POSTPONED to Saturday, June 6, 2020.
Based on the latest CDC recommendations for events, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our races from Saturday, May 9, to Saturday, June 6. All pre-purchased tickets for the May 9 date will be honored on June 6. Additionally, we will extend the deadline for reserved tailgating space renewal by two weeks – from March 31 to April 14.
We recognize the need to pull together and be vigilant in protecting each other from infection. On June 6, we will be implementing measures to ensure that protection will happen.
Our steeplechase meet is a charitable event that benefits two important organizations in our community—The Stroud Water Research and Penn Vet New Bolton Center. We are optimistic we will all be able to gather in the beautiful countryside for a wonderful day of steeplechase racing in support of our charities.
These are unprecedented times and we appreciate your patience and support. If anything changes, we will let you know. Further updates will also appear on our website, willowdale.org and through social media.
