TORONTO, November 20, 2020 – Below is a media statement from Woodbine Entertainment in response to the Government of Ontario’s announcement earlier today regarding Toronto and Peel regions moving to ‘Lockdown’.
Since the beginning of our province’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic earlier this year, our commitment to public safety has not wavered. We are extremely supportive of the Government’s efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19 throughout our community. Furthermore, we are very proud of our safety record at Woodbine Racetrack and Woodbine Mohawk Park in this regard.
To that end, we are currently working to understand the implications this recent news will have on Thoroughbred racing at Woodbine Racetrack and the thousands of people it supports throughout the province.
We will provide further updates at the appropriate time.
