Woodbine Mohawk Park’s Breeders Crown Returns with Fine Dining, Charity Donations

This October is about to see major action at Woodbine Mohawk Park that is already up for grabs. Woodbine Entertainment and Libfield-Katz Breeding Partnership announced that October 4 is about to see a fundraiser for the Breeders Crown Charity Challenge.

Meanwhile, horse racing enthusiasts already have the chance to purchase the essential dining passes for the premium dining locations that would enhance the experience at the end of the month.

October is about to be a heated month for Woodbine Mohawk Park, essentially making Campbellville one of the hotspots near Toronto.

Everyone interested in harness racing would have the chance to experience live entertainment and betting possibilities that also have a more family-friendly side to them. The Breeders Crown comes with CA$7.9 million in purses, enough to make it an appealing opportunity for horse people in the area.

October 25 Sees Races Start

For the 36th year in a row, the Breeders Crown is about to be greenlighted on October 25. Bringing two days of live racing action, Woodbine Mohawk Park is about to welcome a diverse crowd ready to see who is about to win. This two-day event is projected to introduce two-year-olds on Friday, as well as three-year-olds on Saturday, rounding up the overall number of championships to 12.

All enthusiasts ready to make their way there and experience live the thrill of horse racing now have the chance to reserve their tables and seats at the Terrace Trackside Buffet, Mohawk Harvest Kitchen, the COSA Premium Lounge, as well as the Trackside Bar. All aforementioned locations are scheduled to offer an exciting schedule and aim to please their customers.

COSA Premium Lounge is projected to make both evenings special with its dining and entertainment special events. Those willing to purchase a ticket at the best price could pay CA$200 a night or CA$350 for the two evenings. Reservations for the Terrace Buffet, Mohawk Harvest Kitchen and Trackside Bar have weekend passes up for grabs, ranging from CA$150 to CA$300.

Weekend with Fun Galore

Those interested in reserving their premium seats would have to contact 1-888-675-7223 or 416-675-7223 in a timely manner, as some of the locations have limited seats on offer. Both evenings come with post time 7 p.m. and people present on site are in for a treat and two exciting nights of horse racing and fine gourmet dining. October 4 is scheduled to see the fundraiser for the Breeders Crown Charity Challenge.

It involves celebrities supporting a Canadian charity they feel passionate about. Some of those are Michael ‘Pinball’ Clemons, Kim MacDonald, Eddie Olczyk, and Dan Pleasac. As for the charities benefitting of this fundraiser and the challenge, those are Pinball Clemons Foundation, Breast Cancer Society of Canada, Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, and Ontario Standardbred Adoption Society.

What should be pointed out is that each of those would receive one percent of the respective horse’s earnings. This equates to a minimum of CA$5,000 per charity. Projections are that funds generated would be over CA$100,000, possibly setting a new record.
