COVID-19 Updates

The Ontario Select Yearling sale would like to announce the COVID-19 protocols for those planning to attend the upcoming yearling sale on October 17th at Winbak Farm of Canada in Inglewood, ON.

Pat Woods, Ontario Select Yearling Sale Manager, is happy with the response from horsepeople towards the new sale. “We have received very positive feedback from people so far. They are understanding of the restrictions and just happy that there is going to be a live sale whether they bid live on-site or on-line. We have explained to everyone who calls that space is limited on sale day due to government restrictions. It has been stressed that only the trainer or one person from an ownership group can attend on sale day. Prospective attendees have been very understanding.”

The health and safety of the sale participants and staff is of paramount importance to all of us at the Ontario Select Yearling Sale. These guidelines are in place and intended to assist with the safe operation during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is of utmost importance that we follow and adhere to the regulations set forth by Peel region Public Health and the Province of Ontario.
