There are some races you need to experience at least once in your life; and for me, the Ricoh Woodbine Mile is among them. Woodbine is one of the most fan-friendly racetracks around, the race itself always draws top horses on the road to the Breeders’ Cup World Championships, Toronto is an objectively cool city, and the betting opportunities on WoMile day are fantastic.

With the 36thBreeders’ Cup World Championships less than 60 days away, Breeders’ Cup announced on Sept. 2 that general admission tickets to the two-day event are now on sale.

Labor Day weekend marks a big annual transition point on the Thoroughbred racing calendar, as two of the sport’s marquee venues – Saratoga and Del Mar – conclude their elite summer meets.

The Grade 1, $1.25 million Runhappy Travers Stakes, also known as the “Mid-summer Derby,” drew a terrific crowd Aug. 24 at Saratoga Race Course, where great racing and a beautiful day in the low 70s greeted racing fans. Always a highlight of the Saratoga meet and an important race in determining the hierarchy of 3-year-old male division, the Travers Stakes celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2019.
