On Thursday, April 23, officials with Flamboro Downs announced that the 2020 edition of the Confederation Cup has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The event for four-year-old pacers was scheduled to be contested in May, but Flamboro officials have stated that, at this point, they are now considering presenting the annual stakes event this fall.

“It is difficult at this time to announce an alternative date for the Confederation Cup without knowing what other tracks are doing with their own stakes schedules,” Flamboro Downs General Manager Chad Gates was quoted as saying via release.

Gates went on to say, “Flamboro will be exploring possible dates in September that will best align with stakes schedules within the industry.”

Trot Insider will convey all updates in regard to the rescheduling of the Confederation Cup when they become available.

The next major stakes for older horses after The Confederation Cup is The Camluck, on May 29. I bet that Western Fair will announce the postponement of this race within the next week.
