Woodbine Entertainment, a world-wide horse racing and innovation leader, today announced the company will add a second grass course at Woodbine Racetrack in 2019.

The second turf track will complement the existing and renowned E.P. Taylor Turf Course, home to the Breeders’ Stakes, third jewel of Canada’s Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing, the Woodbine Mile and the Canadian International.

Construction will begin in the spring of 2018 when the existing Standardbred racing track will be converted to a seven furlong turf course.

Earlier this month, Woodbine Entertainment announced plans to invest over $10 million in the company’s Campbellville racetrack, allowing Standardbred horses to compete at Mohawk year-round. Standardbred horses will race at Woodbine for the final time in April 2018, paving the way for a second grass course at Woodbine and dedicated facilities for each breed.
