Red Shores Racetrack in Charlottetown is about to see the official start of its live racing season on June 4 and all eyes are set on the prize coming with the first racing evening. Three-year-old horses are already preparing for the official opening of the live season this Thursday. This start is about to make the harness racing hotspot the first Canadian racetrack to return to live events.
Horse racing enthusiasts from across Prince Edward Island are ready to see the official launch of live racing on the premises of the popular racetrack. Their experience will take place online and it will also be enhanced by the wagering opportunity they will have whenever there is a live event in progress.
Live Schedule 2020
Canada is ready to bring back live horse racing and Red Shores Racetrack is about to be the pioneer on a national level, as it was confirmed that this will be the first racetrack to return to regular live races. The Charlottetown Driving Park racetrack is already preparing for the official start on June 4 with only several hours left for preparation and training.
It could be recalled that May 30 saw the mandatory qualifying races paving the way for the June 4 racing schedule. Dreamfair Zenfire made a special appearance, as the filly is about to race during this season in Charlottetown. It should be taken into account that May 30 was a special day for a total of six racetracks across Canada, as they saw their qualifiers on that day. For most of them, this was the first qualifier since March.
Across North America upwards of 740 horses entered the qualifiers that could pave their way to a grand racing event coming with a great payout. The results of these qualifiers were publicly issued and horses are preparing. For most racetracks commencing their live events, June 6 is about to be a special date, as it will bring their first event.
June 6 Live Racing
Exhibition Park Raceway in Saint John is scheduled to see its official first event after the lockdown on June 6. Driver John Davidson Sr. managed to dominate five of the seven races taking place on May 30 which asserted his good position on the local Standardbred leader boards. This Saturday is expected to see more harness racing.
Georgian Downs is another racing hotspot that is about to greenlight its live racing on June 6. Patrick Shepherd’s stable was able to claim many of the races taking place Hanover Raceway is another of the premium racetracks of Canada, located in Ontario. The qualifiers happening there involved physical distancing and drivers’ protection at all times.
Hiawatha Horse Park will also see the official start of its live harness events soon. June 6 will reunite the strong performers among the horses participating in the qualifier last Saturday. Magnolia Moonstone, Cheddar Bay, and No Angel Here were among the strong performers on May 30. Kawartha Downs is also preparing for the June 6 start of its live horse racing events.
