On Friday (July 31), officials with Flamboro Downs announced that the 2020 edition of the Confederation Cup has been cancelled.
The event for four-year-old pacers was scheduled to be contested in May, but Flamboro officials made the announcement in April that the race would be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic and possibly rescheduled to the fall.
“Management at Flamboro Downs have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 running of the Confederation Cup, which was originally scheduled to be contested in May and then re-scheduled to September 2020,” said the track’s general manager Chad Gates in a statement. “This was a difficult decision for management, but we felt that under the current operating protocols we could not present such a prestigious event in the manner it deserves.
“We look forward to once again hosting the Confederation Cup in May 2021.”
