Woodbine Racetrack History

Woodbine Racetrack is the only horse racing track in North America, which stages thoroughbred and standard-bred horse racing programs on the same day. Woodbine Entertainment Group, formerly the Ontario Jockey Club owns this racetrack. Woodbine Racetrack was opened in 1956 and got a face lift in 1993. The renovation work continued for ten long years and was completed in 2004. The name of the racetrack was changed to Old Woodbine or Greenwood Race Track in 1956. The two thoroughbred and two standard bred meets conducted at this racetrack were transferred to the new Woodbine in 1994 it had been exclusively devoted to thoroughbred racing. In 1996, The Breeders Cup World Thoroughbred Championship was held at Woodbine.
