Woodbine To Allow Spectators At 25 Percent Capacity Beginning July 1

Beginning on Thursday, July 1, Woodbine Racetrack in Ontario, Canada will be able to welcome back spectators at 25 percent capacity, reports cbc.ca. The news comes as the provincial government moves into Phase Two of its reopening plan after the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It’s obviously exciting for all of our fans, owners and wagering customers to be able to get back to the racetrack,” Woodbine CEO Jim Lawson told cbc.ca. “A big part of horse racing is the live experience of being around the horses and watching the races.

“As great as Woodbine does in terms of simulcasting and broadcasting our product, what people really like and love is being there in person and seeing the air of excitement around the jockeys, the drivers and racing. It’s a great experience.”

The reopening to spectators also applies to Woodbine Mohawk Park. More details on specific numbers will be released in the coming days.
