ACBA selects Century Downs Racetrack and Casino to host 116th bull sale

The Alberta Cattle Breeders Association (ACBA) has named Century Downs Racetrack and Casino, Rocky View County, Alta., to host the 2016 Calgary Bull Sale.

“After conducting a thorough review process, ACBA has selected Century Downs Racetrack and Casino to host the 116th annual Calgary Bull Sale,” ACBA President Neal Church said. “Located just north of Calgary, Century Downs provides a suitable new facility in a convenient location to host next year’s bull sale and associated events on March 2 and 3. It’s an exciting new chapter in the long-standing tradition of the historic Calgary Bull Sale.”

A world-class facility, Century Downs Racetrack and Casino has held a variety of events in addition to horse races since opening for business April 1, 2015.

“We are honored to have been selected by ACBA to host the 2016 Calgary Bull Sale with its amazing legacy,” said Century Downs General Manager Paul Ryneveld. “Although we primarily host horse races, our facility has the flexibility to accommodate the needs of the Calgary Bull Sale and its associated events. Located on 21 hectares adjacent to CrossIron Mills mall, near the junction of Highway 2 and Stoney Trail, Century Downs is easily accessible for consignors and buyers.”

The Calgary Bull Sale is the longest running consignment bull sale in North America and is a benchmark for other bull sales across the prairie provinces.
