A trio of Japanese 2-year-old sales have been changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The news was first reported in Blood-Horse.

Nakayama Racecourse was due to host the 83-lot Japan Racing Association's Breeze-Up Sale on Apr. 28, but the sale has now become an online auction only. All confirmation photos, breeze videos and vet reports will be available on the JRA website. Virtual bids will be accepted from buyers from Apr. 28-30.

The Hidaka Breeders' Association's May 12 Hokkaido Training Sale has been cancelled, with all 162 juveniles available for private sale only. Funabashi Racecourse was the site of the May 15 Chiba Agricultural Cooperative's Thoroughbred Sale, but that sale has been postponed to June 5. Seventy-one horses will go under the hammer.
