Woodbine Racetrack’s Voice Dawn Lupul Ready for a New Chapter

Woodbine Entertainment is renowned for its premium racing offerings and exciting live season taking over the Toronto area. Dawn Lupul has been the face of simulcast coverage associated with the riveting races happening on site.

She announced that she is about to put an end to her broadcasting career and focus on self-improvement in an entirely new field – the holistic one.

Changes in life are the thing that keeps us going and refreshed for new endeavors. Mixing things up is an approach that has been eyed by Mrs. Lupus for some time, as she recently announced she steps downs from her position of simulcast broadcast coverage host.

Thoroughbred racing is deeply rooted in her and over the past 11 years, Woodbine has been her second home where she has been able to show her full potential.

Mrs. Lupul Bids Farewell to Woodbine

Thoroughbred horse racing is what Woodbine Racetrack is known for and simulcast races are what attracts racing enthusiasts on a regular basis. Mrs. Lupul was the voice behind this regular broadcast for more than a decade but now it is time for a change.

She announced via a tweet that the end of last week was also the end of her career at Woodbine Entertainment. What should be taken into account is that her career in the horse racing field has been in progress for the past 24 years and at this point, she is ready for a brand new path of development.

She expressed how difficult it has been for her to make up her mind and make her decision public. Now it is time for her to dedicate efforts to her holistic health practitioner career. She addressed her time spent at Woodbine and the management also had something to add. Jim Lawson, Chief Executive Officer of Woodbine Entertainment, stated that Mrs. Lupus had contributed with her experience to the racetrack operation.

This Year was a Special One for Her

This year was a special one for Mrs. Lupus, as she was able to win a special challenge with a charity nature. This February saw the annual NTRA’s National Horseplayers Championship Charity Challenge attracting prominent people and well-known names in the industry. More than 50 individuals and household names became part of it, but only Mrs. Lupul was able to outplay all of them all.

Personalities expressing and creating in the field of journalism, horseracing, and the entertainment field were ready to support a good cause at this charity event. Every individual had to pick a racing horse to Win and Place in a total of eight horse races. Mrs. Lupul was prepared for action with an unusual strategy that did not include her favorite horses.

Instead, she sought the weaker points of every race that could set people thinking and highlighted them. This is how at the end of the day her hypothetical bankroll reached CA492.60, defeating all remaining players. Frank Angst, a journalist in the horse racing field managed to climb to the runner-up position on the official leaderboard. Furthermore, Mrs. Lupus also donated some CA$5,000 to the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund.
