Wellington, FL (March 14, 2020) – The Wellington Turf Tour intends to continue holding its series of horse shows with elevated sanitation procedures and strict adherence to CDC and other recommended guidelines. The above proposed schedule will begin Turf Tour 11 (March 18-20) through the Turf Tour Finale (March 28), with approval from the USEF. Official schedules and information will be posted and distributed when they become available, with final decisions to be made early next week.
Statement from the 2020 Wellington Turf Tour managing directors, Nona Garson & George D’Ambrosio:
“We understand this is a time to be very careful with everyone’s health and we are taking the situation very seriously.
We will continue to inform you via emails and on our social media platforms as decisions are made and guidelines are released from health officials.
Please note, if we do host the horse show, we will follow the CDC, Federal, State, and Local guidelines at that time.
We have amped up our sanitization of all human areas of the farm, and we have been assured by numerous veterinarians that horses cannot carry nor can they transmit the current Corona threat.
This is an evolving situation and we would like to reserve the right to make our final decision on hosting the horse show closer to the start of the horse show.
Thank you for your continued support of our horse shows.”
