Due to current restrictions in place at Santa Anita Park as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, as well as recent changes in the 2020 Thoroughbred auction calendar, Fasig-Tipton announced today the cancellation of its 2020 Santa Anita 2-Year-Olds in Training Sale.
The auction had been scheduled for June 3 in Arcadia, Calif.
“Factors beyond our control have necessitated the sale's cancellation,” said Fasig-Tipton president Boyd Browning. “We greatly appreciate the support we received from those that had already committed entries, as well as the efforts and cooperation of Santa Anita's management and staff these past several months. With so much uncertainty, we felt it was best to go ahead and announce the sale's cancellation to provide sellers with ample time to redirect their horses to other venues.
“While disappointed with this outcome, we look forward to continuing to work with California breeders and sellers on the California Fall Yearlings Sale scheduled for Oct. 19 of this year at Fairplex in Pomona, Calif.,” added Browning.
