MILTON, October 28, 2019 – Woodbine Entertainment today announced plans for added distance races and a change to the post-ten starting spot as part of pilot projects beginning November 1 at Woodbine Mohawk Park.
Beginning Friday (November 1), all races at Woodbine Mohawk Park will now score nine across the gate with post-ten starting in the second-tier. The start of November will also launch a project to contest a race nightly at the distance of a mile and three-eighths (1 3/8) with 11 starters.
The mile and three-eighths races will receive a purse increase and all starters will receive money. Posts ten and 11 for the added distance races will start from the second-tier.
These pilot projects are scheduled to run through the remainder of the calendar year. An update on the projects will be given prior to the start of the 2020 live racing season.
