COMING UP SEPT 23 – OCT 2: SALUTE TO SECRETARIAT AT THE STATE FAIR OF VIRGINIA AT THE MEADOW!
Our annual Salute to Secretariat at the State Fair of Virginia at The Meadow, his birthplace, will feature some exciting new additions. Not only can you meet local Secretariat descendants, see the historic barns and shop for official merchandise, but there will be new narrated tours of stately Meadow Hall.
This is the first time the mansion will be open to the general public during the Fair. Located on the site of the original Chenery homeplace, Meadow Hall showcases the history of the farm and its famous Thoroughbreds with beautiful galleries and exhibits. The new Chenery Collection of Meadow Stable memorabilia will be a delightful highlight of this tour.
