The 2020 Irish Thoroughbred Breeders' Association National Breeding & Racing Awards will be announced via a virtual ceremony at 7:30 p.m. local time on Jan. 30. The virtual ceremony will be released on all ITBA social media channels, as well as the ITBA website. This is the first time the ceremony will be conducted virtually due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
ITBA chairman John McEnery said, “Despite all the many challenges facing the industry in 2020, Irish breeders and Irish bred horses continued to excel on both the national and international stage. We are indebted to our loyal sponsors without whom we would be unable to stage these awards. I would encourage you all to be part of this innovative celebration by joining via all social media platforms to acknowledge the wonderful people and horses who made 2020 such a memorable year for the Irish breeding industry.”
