MILTON, March 25, 2020 – Due to the suspension of live racing at Woodbine Mohawk Park caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Woodbine Entertainment has made the decision to suspend the upcoming April 15, 2020 Standardbred stakes payments.
“It’s important for us to recognize the challenges facing everyone in the horse business at this time, and we want to help where we can,” said Jim Lawson, CEO of Woodbine Entertainment. “We want to thank all of the owners that have staked their horses for 2020.”
Woodbine will reevaluate all stakes purses and sustaining payments in May.
