The National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA) has rescheduled the upcoming 2021 National Horseplayers Championship (NHC), originally slated for Feb. 12-14, to Aug. 27-29 due to the ongoing impacts of COVID-19. The NHC, a culmination of a year-long series of tournaments of which the winner is honored at the Eclipse Awards, will be held at Bally's Las Vegas.

“With the support of our partners at Bally's and Caesars Entertainment, we have secured dates that provide us with a great opportunity to host a world-class event in the safest possible environment for our participants, guests and employees,” said the NTRA's chief operating officer Keith Chamblin.

According to the NTRA, the 2021 date change will not impact the current 2020-21 NHC Tour, which concludes Jan. 23. The 2022 NHC will be scheduled for its usual February dates.
