Stallion Presentations and Season Launch
On Sunday 2nd August 2020, CSBA took up an offer from The Met to sponsor the whole race card in the COVID environment, when we were all keen to get racing up and running. The races were named after members of the Association and mares who had represented their breed with distinction.

For this function we took the opportunity to refresh the annual stallion presentation evening. Recently attendance had been poor for the evening event. Taking advantage of a Sunday race meeting, 145 people attended. They listened to presentations from the stallion representatives that were spread out between the races. Those attending paid for a light lunch.
The feedback received from participants and studs was excellent. People enjoying the atmosphere of a day at the races and a more leisurely presentation of the stallions that are on offer in the current season. Depending on the racing calendar, the 2021 event will take place in similar format.
