1. Meadow Farm transitions to The Meadow Event Park...
Plans call for restoration of the foaling shed and several stall barns used by Secretariat, as well as a display paying homage to The Meadow’s equestrian history, and later a Museum of the Virginia Horse...At least it's not another shopping mall or McMansion pseudo-estate.
