Fans unable to attend this Saturday’s Canadian Trotting Classic and Maple Leaf Trot will be able to catch the action from Mohawk Racetrack on multiple platforms.
Originally scheduled to air on TSN2, a prior commitment to U.S. college football has preempted coverage of this weekend’s event, but fans and horseplayers won’t have to miss a race.
Full card simulcast coverage will be available via live streaming at www.MohawkRacetrack.comand for HPIbet members through their accounts. HPItv is another option to watch each race on the C$2.6 million card (Rogers 420, Bell 478).
For those on track for the Maple Leaf Trot and Canadian Trotting Classic, Saturday is Fan Appreciation Night. The first 1,000 fans to arrive will receive a $5 food and drink voucher, a free program and ‘Your First Bet on Us’.
Woodbine Entertainment Group and Standardbred Canada will also be honoring the recently retired San Pail. A three-time winner of the Maple Leaf Trot, San Pail will receive a retirement ceremony in the winner’s circle Saturday evening. Memorabilia, trophies and other items from San Pail’s career will also be on display.
Doors open Saturday at 5 p.m. and post time is 7:25 p.m.
