Woodbine Mohawk Park celebrated International Women’s Day on Friday night (March 8) by highlighting the contributions of women to the sport of harness racing throughout the program.

Woodbine’s award-winning broadcast department produced a special video tribute to the women of harness racing which aired on Friday’s simulcast show and can be viewed below.

Woodbine racing analyst Dawn Lupul was featured behind the mic calling the evening's 10 races while Woodbine Mohawk Park President Jessica Buckley also joined the broadcast and spoke about the talented women in the sport.

"There are so many capable women in racing," said Buckley in an interview with Jason Portuondo. "It is a sport where women and men can compete on an equal playing field on the track, and there's so many women involved in racing as far as breeding goes and training and caretakers and lots of people that work in the business of racing as well, so it's a great night to celebrate."

The evening's second race winner Birch Island Betty was joined in the winner's circle by female industry participants to celebrate International Women’s Day.

In the top fillies and mares class, Double A Mint closed off cover to defeat stablemate Sandbetweenurtoes and Jan as the 3-5 favourite in 1:53.1. Louis-Philippe Roy drove the four-year-old Bettors Delight-Double Creme mare, who earned her third Preferred win in a row for trainer Richard Moreau and owner Adriano Sorella.
