Assiniboia Downs Reschedules Opening Day To May 24

Assiniboia Downs has decided to reschedule the opening day to one week later Monday, May 24, 2021.

The interprovincial travel restrictions and quarantine requirements have resulted in some unexpected travel delays for horsemen that had planned to be ready to race next week.

“There is so much that goes into the opening of the meet so it is disappointing for sure”, said Darren Dunn, the track’s CEO.  “However, we felt it was the responsible approach to give it another week to get everyone here safely, following all necessary protocols.  Then we can start the season strong with the first racing program on the Victoria Day Monday.”

The two days that are being re-scheduled along with one additional race day will be added to the end of the racing schedule to offer 51 days of racing as opposed to the initial 50 days currently scheduled.

Assiniboia Downs will be one of the few tracks that will be running in Canada this month.  The 2021 racing schedule will be Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights with a 7:30 p.m. (Central time) first race post time.
