Willowdale Steeplechase to return to full capacity in 2022

Plans for the 29th running of the Willowdale Steeplechase on Saturday, May 14, 2022 are underway! The races will return to full spectator capacity with some exciting new attendance opportunities.

Spectators at the 2022 races will have the choice of purchasing traditional tailgate parking spots, Hilltop Private Party Paddocks or tables in the new Jockey Club at Willowdale. Corporate Hospitality tents and general admission will be available again and there are increased opportunities for sponsorship.

“We are grateful to the many supporters who have helped us survive the losses brought on by the pandemic – and to be able to welcome back all of our race goers this spring,” said Race Chairman Dixon Stroud. “We’re anticipating a spectacular race day.”

He stressed that the safety and well-being of Willowdale’s spectators, horsemen, officials and volunteers is the organization’s top priority – and that hasn’t changed. All Willowdale Steeplechase planning decisions will continue to be made in accordance with CDC, federal and state government mandates and public health guidelines for outdoor events.
