MILTON, ON - April 7, 2021 - As a result of the Provincial State of Emergency declared today by the Government of Ontario, which includes a province-wide 28-day stay-at-home order effective Thursday, April 8 at 12:01 a.m., Woodbine Entertainment announced that training at Woodbine Mohawk Park will be suspended immediately. Training will be offered again after the stay-at-home order is lifted or when there is clarity on when live racing will be permitted to resume. Woodbine Entertainment also confirmed that it is continuing its efforts with government officials and local health authorities to be permitted to safely operate live racing during a lockdown situation which would allow the Standardbred Racing season at Woodbine Mohawk Park to resume after the stay-at-home order is lifted on May 6. "This is very difficult news to share with our Woodbine Mohawk Park community," said Jim Lawson, CEO, Woodbine Entertainment. "Since the beginning of the pandemic in Ontario more than a year ago, we have supported the Government of Ontario every step of the way and will continue to do so. "However, if we do not receive permission to safely operate live racing during a lockdown situation after the stay-at-home is lifted, our industry and business could be greatly impacted as more and more trainers will be sending their horses to the United States where there are plenty of racing opportunities. This situation has the potential to have a devastating and long-lasting impact on the standardbred industry in Ontario." Woodbine Entertainment will continue to provide regular updates to keep horse people informed of the latest developments regarding training and live racing at Woodbine Mohawk Park. by Mark McKelvie, for Woodbine Entertainment  

TORONTO, ON -  April 5, 2021 - The Ontario harness racing community mourns the loss of Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame, standardbred builder, Robert (Bob) Burgess. Mr. Burgess was a lawyer specializing in equine law who achieved great success within harness racing as both a co-owner and breeder. As the co-owner of Cantario Farms in Campbellville, ON., Mr. Burgess became one of Canadian harness racing leading breeders throughout the 1970's, '80's and early '90's. Some of his most notable horses include 2007 North America Cup champion Tell All, 2003 Hambletonian winner Amigo Hall, along with 2006 Hambletonian, trotting Triple Crown and U.S. horse of the year award winner Glidemaster. As a prominent Canadian breeder, Mr. Burgess achieved phenomenal success by syndicating 2000 Canadian Horse of the Year Balanced Image, who produced more winners than any trotter in history. In addition to being a past president of the Canadian Standardbred Horse Society, he served on the Woodbine Entertainment Board of Directors and was the council for the industry association that advocated for the formation of the Ontario Sires Stakes program. "Bob had a tremendous enthusiasm for harness racing and worked hard to improve the areas of the industry he was passionate about," said Jim Lawson, CEO of Woodbine Entertainment. "On behalf of Woodbine Entertainment, we send our condolences to Bob's many friends and family." Born in Peterborough, ON, Mr. Burgess's family would also live in Quebec City before he journeyed to Toronto to practice law. In 2011 he was inducted into the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame as a standardbred builder a year after winning an O'Brien Award for Canada's top two-year-old trotting colt, his homebred Blue Porsche in 2010. by Mark McKelvie, for Woodbine Entertainment

MILTON, ON - March 27, 2021 - Horseplayers around North America will be glued to tonight's final race at Woodbine Mohawk Park, as the Campbellville harness racing oval offers a mandatory payout on the Jackpot Hi-5. A carryover of $262,454.05 will be brought into tonight's mandatory payout, which is carded as Race 11 with an overflow field of 11 pacers.

Woodbine Mohawk Park's most recent Jackpot Hi-5 mandatory payout was held on December 19, 2020 and saw a carryover of $335,940 help vault a total of $1.3 million in 'new money' wagered. Horseplayers from all over will be looking to come up with the winning ticket, containing the top-five finishers in order. The Jackpot Hi-5 has a $0.20 minimum and low 15 per cent take out. Tonight's mandatory payout race (Non-Winners $12,000 last 5 starts or $22,000 last 10 starts. AE: Optional Claiming $30,000) features a field of Mohawk Park's "weekly warriors". The field of veteran pacers includes former Preferred winner Evenwood Sonofagun (#7), who has been installed as the 3-1 morning line choice over the class-dropping Legion Seelster (#4) at 7-2. The gritty eight-year-old East End (#6) is the third-choice at 4-1 and dropping out of the Preferred Handicap, while also debuting tonight for trainer Rob Fellows. Ideal Perception (#2) at 6-1 and Butter Bay Hanover (#9) at 15-1 are the only horses in the field coming in off victories, with both moving up in class this week.

MILTON, March 22, 2021 - Better late than never, Woodbine Mohawk Park played host to the Wine & Roses and Family Day Trotting Series finals on Monday night. Originally scheduled for February 15, the winter series were pushed back to March due to the province-wide lockdown. Both finals featured a pair of preliminary legs ahead of Monday's added money finals. Sheswildnfree rebounded from a miscue in leg two to score a decisive 4¼ length victory in the $34,400 Wine & Roses Trotting Series final. Sylvain Filion guided the Ben Baillargeon trained four-year-old to the 1:54.2 score. Sent off as the 2/5 favourite, Sheswildnfree flashed early speed along with next door rival Impulse Buy, clearing to command just after a :27.3 opening-quarter. The Baillargeon trainee put the race to bed from there, posting middle-half splits of :57.1 and 1:25.4 before scooting away in the lane for her fourth win in five starts this season. Impulse Buy never relinquished second, while Charlotte Chaplin edged Hp Starlette for third.   SHESWILDNFREE REPLAY     A homebred for Tom & Elizabeth Rankin, Sheswildnfree is a daughter of Muscle Mass with now six wins and $77,158 to her name. The clocking of 1:54.2 is a new career-best. Sheswildnfree returned $2.90 to win. Rjs Invictus capitalized off a perfect second-over steer from driver Bob McClure to win the $35,800 Family Day Trotting Series final at odds of 8-1. The Ray Lowery trainee finished sixth in the first leg and second in last week's second leg. After an early scramble for the top, Franks Angel led the field through middle-half panels of :57.1 and 1:25.4. Meadowbranch Noble came first-up to attack the leader and was on even-terms at the third-marker, while Rjs Invictus and McClure were latched onto that cover ready to pounce. Rjs Invictus claimed the lead with an eighth of a mile to go, but had to fight off a hard-closing Toccoa Falls, who was the 2-1 favourite and closing from seventh turning for home. Rjs Invictus held off the rival by a neck to win in a career-best 1:54.1. Charmbo Prince, who was looking for the series sweep, started from the second-tier and grabbed third after racing sixth throughout. Meadowbranch Noble settled for fourth.   RJS INVICTUS REPLAY     A four-year-old gelding, Rjs Invictus was winless in three starts this season prior to Monday evening. The son of Windsong Espoir now has three wins and $50,899 in career earnings for owner/breeder Russell Lowery. A $2 win ticket on Rjs Invictus returned $19.20. The Wine & Roses and Family Day were open to three and four-year-old trotters, non-winners of $60,000 lifetime as of October 31, 2020. Winter series final action continues later this week with the $40,600 Snowshoe and $40,400 Blizzard finals scheduled for Friday (March 26). by Mark McKelvie, for Woodbine Communications
