On Saturday, September 26, the Alberta Standardbred Horse Association (ASHA) held its 2020 Yearling Sale at Century Downs Racetrack and Casino.

The sale was kicked off with an address from Horse Racing Alberta CEO, Kent Verlik, who had a positive message about the industry moving forward into next year.

With the help of Century Downs, buyers and spectators were split between two different locations, the barns where the sale was being held, and the Backstretch Room in the casino where the sale was live streamed. This maximized the amount of people that could attend the sale as well as safely adhere to the COVID-19 guidelines. Live bids from the stream were only accepted from those in the Backstretch Room, however people were able to watch the sale on the ASHA website and Facebook page.

In total, 49 horses were sold and the sale garnered $327,700. Thirteen horses fetched five figures during the sale, and Kill A Dragon and Fan Of Mine fetched $35,000 and $30,000, respectively, for the highest bids of the day. The average price of the day was $7,992.68
