In an email distributed Monday afternoon, Drew Fleming, the chief executive officer of Breeders’ Cup Limited, explained that the organization is delaying ticket sales for the 2021 Breeders’ Cup World Championships “until we have clarity on the ever-changing landscape.” This year’s event is scheduled to take place at Del Mar Friday and Saturday, Nov. 5 and 6.
“With the COVID-19 vaccine now being rolled out across the country and internationally, we at the Breeders’ Cup remain optimistic for the year ahead, and specifically for the 2021 World Championships,” the email read, in part. “We are working closely with Del Mar, local officials, and public health experts to safely plan the 2021 World Championships. To ensure we have the most up-to-date safety protocols in place in compliance with CDC guidelines, including the permitted levels of attendance, we are delaying ticket sales for the 2021 Breeders’ Cup World Championships.”
Last September, it was announced by Breeders’ Cup that the 2020 renewal at Keeneland would be held without fans, a result of the ongoing pandemic. The Breeders’ Cup returns to the iconic Lexington oval in 2022.
