Woodbine Entertainment hosted the first all-female race at Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto on Saturday. The event promoted female horse racing, which is often overshadowed by male equestrian sports.

Monique Vaq, a race car driver from Canada, won the all-female race. She is also the first woman to win the event.

Woodbine Ent. Hosts All-Female Race

Woodbine Entertainment is honoring International Women’s Day in a unique manner this year, hosting a race with only female drivers. This unique event took place on Monday, March 7, 2022, with Mach My Kiss and her driver Natasha winning the thrilling race that included nine older pacing mares.


Woodbine Entertainment has also given an all-female crew for their simulcast and race-calling coverage, in addition to the all-female drivers. The race was the third of the evening, and the primary prize was CA$18,000 particularly for the occasion. On Monday, popular host/racing commentator Dawn Lupul returned as a track announcer for the whole program.

The third race is on the schedule.


Elm Grove Mistress and Anita Ouellette got off to a great start from post eight, with an opening fraction of:28.2, while Ms. Day, riding Mach My Kiss, took up second position. She and the Rob Fellows trainee were unhappy with their early pocket position and took off, clocking a half-mile pace of 58.4, with Elm Grove Mistress close after.

Ms. Day and the mare recovered their groove once they were in first position, which prompted a challenge from Blink And Gone, trained by Richard Moreau, who finished barely a head behind the leader, recording 1:28.1 in the final quarter. Despite the late challenge, Mach My Kiss was able to draw away and set up a five-length advantage on the route to a 1:58 victory.

Blink And Gone stayed in second position, while Stargazing Cruiser, driven by Marie-Claude Auger, finished third after a late charge. In the special race, Fern Hill Bella and Kayla Chappell finished fourth and fifth, respectively. In addition, Monique Vág and Kelly Spencer presented Woodbine Racing Live for the event, welcoming numerous distinguished guests.

A video feature on Ms. Day and a pre-race feature story on driver Marielle Enberg were also part of the company’s International Women’s Day programming. The track’s official Twitter feed has a video of the driver, and its official website has an article on Ms. Enberg. At 7 p.m. on Thursday, live racing at the Milton racetrack returns.

Standardbred Season 2022

Woodbine Mohawk Park, Ontario’s horse racing leader, announced its 2022 Standardbred live racing season in January of this year. This season promises to be exciting once again, with over CA$21 million in major races, including the US$6.7 million Breeders Crown and the 39th running of the Pepsi North America Cup.

In addition, the firm will organize the Mohawk Million on Saturday, September 24, 2022, which, as the name implies, will have a CA$1 million prize pool. The firm also announced that all nine spots for the two-year-old trotters event have been sold, with the last ticket held for the winner of the William Wellwood Memorial, which will take place on August 27, 2022.

Woodbine Entertainment, March 7, 2022, “Mach My Kiss and Natasha Day win International Women’s Day Race.”

Woodbine Entertainment Group is hosting an all-female race, the Woodbine S.B. on March 16th and 17th. The event will feature a 5K run/walk, 10K run/walk, and a half marathon. Reference: woodbine sb.
