2020 proved to be one of the most trying in the history of the sport due to Covid-19. Yet, thanks to the hard tracks and their ingenuity, racing took place.
The Breeders Crown took place as usual but behind closed doors. Despite this, everyone was still able to see the racing thanks to streaming. It wasn’t perfect at first but the longer it went on the better it got, and you could even get a bet off track. The Breeders Crown was no exception to this. The racing was excellent and very competitive with a large prize fund for 2YO, 3YO, and 4YO. All these horses were staked to run in their various age divisions and had the Breeders Crown not been able to take place, all these horses would have lost out as they would never see that age group again. Look out for full write up in your BHRC calendar from Mandy Stanley.
Going into 2021, hopefully the pandemic will be better under control and we will be back to some sort of normality, but if things are not, the hard tracks will prevail and the richest series for UK and Irish bred horses will go ahead. This will mean the Breeders Crown will break the £500,000 mark in money paid out since its inception in 2007.
Jacqui and I would like to wish everyone a Happy Christmas and a good New Year on behalf of the Breeders Crown.
