Woodbine Mohawk Park to play host to 2019 US$6 million Breeders Crown

April 16, 2018 - 11:23 AM

CAMPBELLVILLE, Ont. - Woodbine Mohawk Park will host the US$6 million Breeders Crown, harness racing's richest and most prestigious year-end divisional championship series.

Last year, Woodbine Entertainment announced a $10-million renovation and rebranding of Mohawk Racetrack to Woodbine Mohawk Park, creating a year-round showcase for standardbred racing.

Woodbine has held all 12 Breeders Crown events three times in the past seven years. The most recent was in 2015 when it set a Canadian harness-racing handle record of $5.7 million.

"Woodbine has hosted many Breeders Crown events, however, we are thrilled to welcome the championship series back 35 years later to the new Woodbine Mohawk Park," Jessica Buckley, the president of Woodbine Mohawk Park, said in a statement. "We look forward to having our fans and community experience this world class event with all the top horses in North America."
