Remaining 'Valitar' shows at Del Mar Fairgrounds canceled

Poor ticket sales cited

DEL MAR, Calif. - The producers of a touring horse and acrobatics show that opened at the Del Mar Fairgrounds canceled its remaining shows due to lackluster ticket sales, a fairgrounds spokeswoman said Thursday.

"Valitar," which features more than 25 entertainers and 50 horses of various breeds, opened Friday in red, 45,000-square-foot tent and was set to run through the end of the month under a 45,000-square-foot tent.

The show was created by Mark and Tatyana Remley, a native San Diegan who stars in the show.

Tickets were offered at 15 percent discount. Refunds for tickets bought through Ticketmaster, which ranged from $45 for kids weekday admission to $225 for a weekend or holiday VIP pass, are available by calling (800) 745-3000, Linda Zweig of the fairground said.

Those who bought tickets at the box office should call (858) 792-4252 for a refund.
