With entries ready to open on Monday 31st August, we wanted to update you on a few key points under the current circumstances we find ourselves in.
The 2021 Nutrien Classic is set to run from Saturday 30th January 2021 through until Sunday 7th February 2021 with the same program planned as the 2020 event.
We are anticipating to catalogue 650 horses, similar to the past few years with the event again planning for four days of sales. We are again thrilled to host the NCCA National rider titles as part of the campdraft program.
After discussions with a number of clients we can also confirm that any horses purchased from the Classic that remain eligible for the Classic event; therefore 5 years and under and still owned by the entity that purchased originally from a Classic sale will qualify Young Gun competitors for the competition.
As previously mentioned in the event that we are unable to confirm our ability to conduct the event in February, we will look at our options at the end of October to allow time for vendors and trainers to prepare for the sale professionally.
In the event any delay was required, we will look to still offer all two-year-old horses via an online sale in February, with all normal eligibility along with the Open age horses to be offered in the same fashion online in March 2021.
This would then see our normal program run with the sale of 3 & 4-year-old horses in conjunction with our traditional competitions if required.
With entries being open for the week next week we will initially confirm your entries, but will not take any payments until we can confirm our program at the end of October.
If you require any additional information, please don’t hesitate to call us at any time
