Racing

 

Experience the thrill of live horse racing!

A group of riders and their horses, each pitted against the other for one single goal—get there first. Be the fastest. It’s a tradition that goes back for thousands of years and one which we honour for all but a few months each year.

Come to Northlands Park Racetrack & Casino for Harness Racing from September to October. Harness racing differs from Thoroughbred racing in the way it prioritizes driver strategy above all else. The horses all race at a specific pace, meaning that two legs on the same side move together and two feet are always on the ground, as opposed to the more common trot. Because of this, the skills of the driver often matter as much as the natural speed of the horse, making each race an exciting and unique experience.
