Woodbine Cancels Thursday Racing

Woodbine Cancels Thursday Racing

TORONTO, July 27, 2023— Due to the extreme heat warning in the Toronto area today, and in consultation with veterinarians and the HBPA, Woodbine has made the decision to cancel today’s (Thursday, July 27) live thoroughbred racing as a precaution for equine welfare and the safety of all racing participants.

Woodbine will continue to monitor the weather and forecast to determine whether we will proceed with live racing on Friday, July 28.

Today’s races will be offered to be carded for Sunday, July 30. 

Woodbine will also endeavour to make up for Thursday's cancelled races by adding additional races over the next few race cards. 

An update will be provided tomorrow morning.
