The 2021 General Meeting of the West Virginia Thoroughbred Association will be held on Monday, November 1 at 6:00 pm at Charles Washington Hall, 100 E. Washington St., Charles Town. The meeting is open to WVTBA members and we also welcome interested non-members.

John Funkhouser, WVTBA President, will give a summary of the state of the WV breeding industry. One of the main missions of the WVTBA is to promote our industry to enact pro-breeding legislation. Our legislators will be speaking at the meeting, along with Jim Miller, president of the Charles Town HBPA and WV Racing United, to give us an update on the upcoming legislative session as regards the equine industry. It is essential to have a large showing at this meeting so the legislators have a better idea of how many voters their support affects. Please make every effort to attend and bring a friend! 

Changes have been made to the Virginia Certified Program.
