MILTON, March 19, 2020 — Woodbine Entertainment announced today that following tonight’s card it will be temporarily suspending live standardbred racing at Woodbine Mohawk Park effective Friday, March 20, until further notice due to the ongoing efforts in limiting the spread of Covid-19.

“We have made the decision to suspend live racing in the best interests of the health and wellbeing of our employees, horsepeople and the larger community,” said Jim Lawson, CEO, Woodbine Entertainment. “Throughout these uncertain times, we were always prepared to take this step but implemented many precautionary measures to provide horsepeople with the opportunity to race for as long as possible. We will now shift our focus towards working with provincial agencies to provide the standardbred horse community with financial assistance in order to support horsepeople and the essential care needed for their horses while we are not racing at Mohawk Park.”
