Woodbine Record Turnover

A stakes-filled weekend across Woodbine Racetrack and Woodbine Mohawk Park generated a total of $30,391,567.55 in handle over five cards of Woodbine Entertainment live racing from Friday through Sunday.

The highlight of the weekend was a record-setting $13,856,030.71 handle on Saturday’s Thoroughbred card at Woodbine Racetrack, which established a new record for a Ricoh Woodbine Mile card and was a 17.3 per cent increase over 2020.

Horseplayers wagered $2.2 million on the Ricoh Woodbine Mile race and $1.7 million on the Pattison Canadian International race. A quartet of multi-leg wager guarantees and a Jackpot Hi-5 mandatory payout, which generated $957,408.21 in new money, were also highlights of the successful 12-race card.

Sunday afternoon’s card from Woodbine generated a $7.2 million handle on an 11-race program. The afternoon included a pair of Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Win and You’re In Challenge Series races to cap off Woodbine’s Turf Festival Weekend.

The stakes action continued west at Woodbine Mohawk Park, with the Canadian Trotting Classic the marquee race on another large Saturday evening Standardbred program. Horseplayers wagered $3.1 million on the Saturday 13-race card at Mohawk Park, an increase of 9.4 per cent from last year’s Trotting Classic.

The strong Saturday followed a $2.6 million handle on Friday’s card from Campbellville.
