2020 MATCH Series Canceled



The 2020 edition of the Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred Championships Series (MATCH) had been canceled due to the ongoing uncertainty of racing schedules and concerns about purse money due to the coronavirus. The series was set to debut with races split between Laurel and Charles Town Apr. 8.

“Obviously, we are all disappointed, but it was the right thing to do”, said MATCH Series creator and THA Chairman Alan M. Foreman. “No one wanted to compromise the quality of the event and the brand we are building. MATCH is a luxury, and the monies contributed by the horsemen's organizations, racetracks and breeders organizations to support the Series  can be better used for the benefit of day-to-day racing when live racing return. We have the template ready to go for 2021 and will be back bigger and better than ever”
