The season-opener is the first of 222 cards of racing scheduled for 2020 at Mohawk Park, which has played host to live harness racing since April of 1963 and became the permanent year-round home of Woodbine Standardbreds in April of 2018.

This Saturday’s card is headlined by a $36,000 Preferred Handicap Pace (Race 6) and a $32,000 Mares Preferred Handicap Pace (Race 10).

Post-10 Second Tier

Horsepeople and horseplayers are reminded that Post Position 10 at Woodbine Mohawk Park will continue to start from the second-tier. Post 10 moved to the trailing position at the start of November and this will continue until further notice.

Starting Saturday, Woodbine Mohawk Park will introduce Rolling Doubles and a Late Pick-5 for every card of live racing.

The Rolling Doubles start with the traditional Daily Double on Race 1 and continue with a new Double starting in every race until the Late Double. The regular Double minimums and takeout apply.

The Late Pick 5 will start every night on Race 6 and features a $0.20 minimum and a 15 per cent takeout. The Late Pick 5 joins the popular Early Pick 5, which will continue to start every night on Race 1.
