Stronger Together

The horse racing industry in Canada is made up of multiple stakeholder groups each with unique views on how the industry should be ran. Woodbine Entertainment created the Stronger Together event series to help further provide transparency, open communication and a healthy dialogue on important topics for racing leaders and participants.

Stronger Together events are always available for free, online and often feature prominent industry leaders as guests. Some may have limited in-venue seating or the ability to submit questions prior to the event.

To ensure that you never miss a Stronger Together event, please contact Gordon Thain, Senior Manager, Communications to enroll in our subscriber email list.
