Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation is once again ready to team up with Woodbine Entertainment on this special occasion. The corporation will once again be a sponsor of the Canadian Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing. The first live race is in August, whereas the second one – the Prince of Wales Stakes, is set to take place on September 14. Traditions must be respected, which is why the third jewel will also happen following enough training and preparation.

The Breeders’ Stakes is set to transform October 3 into a special day for Thoroughbred horse racing fans. Lori Sullivan, OLG Chief Land-Based Gaming and Business Development Officer, is happy to support the Canadian Triple Crown once again, as horse racing has a strong foundation within the province of Ontario. Projections are that this year’s edition will attract more spectators and new enthusiasts.

The first days of 2021, brought rumors from an anonymous source that the first event could be postponed to late August. The Queen’s Plate usually takes place over the last days of June, but this year saw a four-week delay. This is how the remaining two races of the Crown were also postponed.
