Colonial Downs Group said Tuesday that the 15-day horse racing schedule that ended Saturday resulted in $17.5 million wagered and $7.4 million in purses for race winners, both increases from the last year of races before the track closed. The $17.5 million wagered represented a 15% increase over 2013, with 85% of the bets coming from outside Virginia. The purse total was up 55% over 2013, the company said. State officials and representatives from the horse industry appeared with Colonial Downs executives to tout the company’s impact on Virginia since purchasing the shuttered track in April 2018. As of September, the company says it has spent $235 million in Virginia and hired more than 900 people. Colonial Downs operates an off-track betting facility at the Dutch Inn Hotel in Collinsville.
