Thursday’s eight-race card at Woodbine Racetrack has been pushed back and will begin at 6:05 p.m., the track announced Monday. The move was made in the best interest of horse welfare as an extreme heat warning is in effect for the city of Toronto and the surrounding areas. Woodbine noted that the decision to push back the start time was made in consultation with the HBPA. Woodbine is the latest track to alter post times due to the heat joining Finger Lakes, who moved both Tuesday and Wednesday cards up to begin at 11:15 a.m. and Presque Isle Downs who moved their Monday-Wednesday cards up to begin at 1 p.m.

 

UPDATE: We have adjusted our post times for Tuesday and Wednesday this week to 11:15am due to anticipation of excessive heat and humidity. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding. Stay cool and hydrated!
