Ontario Sired Spring Series nominations close April 1

MILTON, March 29, 2022 – Woodbine Mohawk Park would like to remind all owners and trainers of this Friday’s deadline (April 1) to nominate to the Ontario Sired Spring Series.

​The Ontario Sired Spring Series is offered for each three-year-old division (pacers and trotters) and open to Ontario sired sophomores that did not earn over $30,000 in 2021.

​Woodbine has attempted to host the Spring Series in each of the last two years, but COVID-19 shutdowns forced the cancellation in both attempts.

​“We’re happy to finally get this series off the ground,” said Bill McLinchey, Director of Standardbred Racing for Woodbine. “This series will offer a great starting block for lightly raced or unraced three-year-olds ahead of the upcoming sires stakes season. From our conversations with our trainers and owners, we expect the Spring Series to be well-received.”

​The Ontario Sired Spring Series will offer two preliminary legs ($18,000 guaranteed purse per division) and a $40,000 added money final. Each event will begin on either Thursday, April 21 or Friday, April 22 and all four finals will be held on Saturday, May 7.

​The nomination fee is $300 (CAD).
