More than 600K recovered in horse show bankruptcy

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) — A federal bankruptcy court has recovered more than $600,000 from a defunct horse and human acrobatics show that closed in Del Mar late last year.

The North County Times reports Monday the company that launched Valitar still owes more than $14 million to roughly 100 creditors. Employees and performers are owed more than $237,000 in wages, while vendors are owed about $2.9 million.

The equine-human acrobatics show, once described as Cirque du Soleil with horses, premiered November at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, featuring nearly 30 performers and about 55 horses. The show shut down five days later because of poor ticket sales.

The company filed for bankruptcy in December.

Some of the proceeds came from an auction of five large tents and other equipment used for the show.
