At 1609, Colonial Downs pays homage to Virginia’s rich horse racing history by proudly applying age-old culinary techniques to create blends and flavors that capture the essence of the Commonwealth. From Sir Archy, considered the father of all American thoroughbreds, to 1973 Triple Crown champion Secretariat, 1609 recognizes the grit and determination of the colonists, as well as the renowned Virginian horse owners and trainers. That said, there is nothing more personal than breaking bread and sharing memories from home. Through its Southern cuisine and flavorful fare, it proudly honors people from seven nations coming together to share their racing experience.
