To our horsemen, owners, and fans,
As we enter the final weeks of the 2020 Running Aces meet, we first want to thank you for your participation in and support of Minnesota harness racing. Many facets of racing this season have proven to be challenging, and we want to recognize you all for your commitment to the program.
We also want to remind you of the two standardbred sales that will be taking place in the coming weeks. Premier Livestock &Auctions Annual Speed Sale will be holding a yearling, racehorse, and breeding stock auction on September 25th at 11:00AM in Withee, WI. Heartland Standardbred Sales will be putting on their annual auction on October 6, 2020 at 10:00AM at Simon Arena in Cannon Falls, MN. Both auctions will have a strong consignment of Minnesota bred yearlings, as well as some in-foal broodmares. We want to encourage all our constituents to attend these events. We know there is a level of uncertainty in the months ahead, but we want to assure you that we have taken actions together with Running Aces in 2020 to ensure funding for the Minnesota bred program in 2021 and beyond. While we cannot guarantee purse levels for 2021, we are hopeful that we will be able to maintain or exceed 2020 funding levels. Please consider supporting this important part of our Minnesota breeding and racing program!
We wish continued racing luck to all of you, and we look forward to seeing you at the sales!
