Grand River Raceway Expecting Full House For 32nd Industry Day
Elora, Ont. – Grand River Raceway (GRR) is proud to welcome back a full house for its 32nd Industry Day.  On Monday, August 1, GRR will be hosting two of its biggest races of the season on an 11 race card event.

Industry Day has always been the pride of Grand River Raceway, showcasing The Battle of Waterloo (this year presented by Winbak Farm) and The Battle of the Belles, the two most prominent races of the GRR season.

After quieter attendance the last couple of years, GRR looks forward to seeing a larger crowd enjoying the races this year.

“Industry Day is a legacy day here at The River,” says Jamie Martin, Raceway Manager at Grand River Raceway. “The Battles create a great energy at the track and with Winbak Farm as presenting sponsor for The Battle of Waterloo, it shows the significance and caliber of racing that we host. New and old race fans will be sure to enjoy a fun day!”

Post time is 12:30 pm on the Monday of the long weekend. It’s going to be a great day to bring the whole family and enjoy FREE general admission (as always for GRR race days). Industry Day brings a few “extras” for kids and adults to enjoy as well

- Petting zoo
- Face painting
- Pony rides – for $5 per ride
- Food trucks
- One-of-a-kind GRR branded t-shirts
- Draw for 4 tickets to The Queen’s Plate

GRR is excited to have a few special guests during the Industry Day festivities. Handicapper Robert Reid Jr. will be onsite joining the broadcast team during the races. Also, local singer Madison Galloway, will sing the national anthem and give a small concert later in the afternoon on The GrandWay patio.


An exciting wagering menu including an early and late Pick 5 beginning of Race 1 and 7 with a guaranteed pool of $7,500, an early and late Pick 4 at the beginning of Race 3 and 7 with a guaranteed pool of $5,000. The Grand Betting Contest will be enhanced with a total prize of $500.
