Thousands of equine and entertainment enthusiasts came out for a sun-splashed Saturday at Great Meadow in The Plains for the annual International Gold Cup. FauquierNow was joined by fellow judges from Middleburg Life and to select the most superb of tailgates based on theme, food and beverage and attire. Winning the competition was Robert and Jeanine Baird’s gathering, followed by The Freeman Group with silver and Pamela Ryder and Kristen Holloway in third. Check back to later this week for photos of the races and other festivities.
