Woodbine Thoroughbred History

Woodbine Thoroughbred is a part of the famed Woodbine Racetrack. The Racetrack was founded by E.P. Taylor and it was opened out on June 12, 1956. The current racetrack is named after the racetrack that was placed in the east Toronto from 1874 to 1993. In the year 1956 the name of the old racetrack was transferred to the new racetrack and both thoroughbred and standard racing were done at the track. The Breeders’ Cup was held at this track in the year 1996 while the Arlington Million was held in 1988. This facility is also home to the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame.
