Woodbine Racetrack History

The Woodbine Racetrack opened in 1956 and it used a name from another horse racetrack that had closed down. Woodbine Racetrack features both standard bred and thoroughbred horse racing. At one time it was devoted to just one type of horse racing, but now it entertains horse racing fans by offering a mixture of action. In 1996, it was home to the Breeder's Cup World Thoroughbred Championship. Woodbine holds a wide variety of stakes races each season.

The Woodbine Racetrack, located near Toronto, is the only horse racing track in North America that holds thoroughbred and standard bred horse racing on the same race card. The track is now owned by the Woodbine Entertainment Group - used to be the Ontario Jockey Club. Over its fifty year life, Woodbine Racetrack has been remodelled a few times to bring it up to then current standards. The extensive remodelling includes the addition of multiple race courses.

Woodbine Racetrack now has three race courses. The outer track is called the E.P. Taylor turf course. It's one and a half miles long and with the chute, it can hold races of one mile and an eighth. This outer track is irregularly shaped. Inside of the E.P. Taylor track is the main dirt course. It's a one-mile oval and can hold races up to seven furlongs or one mile and quarter. Finally, inside this dirt course is course that's made of crushed limestone. This oval course is for standard bred racing and its seven-eights of a mile in length.

Woodbine Race track is home to some great horse racing betting action. Here's a short list of some important stakes races.
