10/10/2020 – The NRHA European Derby and ancillary NRHA show scheduled for October 26 up to and including November 1 in conjunction with Equitá Lyon has been cancelled and will be postponed until the year 2021. The decision has made due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in France and the measurements taken by the French Government in order to try to avoid the further spread of the virus. Equitá Lyon itself has not been cancelled. There will be no exhibition though and the event now covers 9 days of pure sport.
A date and venue for the NRHA European Derby 2021 have not been decided yet. NRHA has made the commitment though that horses eligible for the 2020 derby will have the opportunity to run for the purse money that nominators invested for the 2020 derby, in the year of 2021. For the moment NRHA is working on what that will look like. An update will be given at the very latest by the end of November.
