A group in Albemarle County is challenging what it believes is a potential sale of Foxfield.
The annual races draw thousands each spring to the course on Garth Road.
A lawsuit filed in an Albemarle County court alleges the CEO of the race is trying to sell the property, all but ensuring the end of the races.
The plaintiffs argue that would be illegal under the terms of a trust created in 1983.
Both sides will be in court Friday, June 2, on a motion to suspend discovery.
