For 25 years, fans at Woodbine Racetrack have witnessed some of harness racing's best horses and some of Canadian harness racing's greatest memories.

Over that time, the track has hosted 13 North America Cups, 11 Breeders Crowns and countless other events.

March marked the final full month of Standardbred racing at Woodbine, and in the Greater Toronto Area. After the April 9, 2018 program, harness racing will permanently move to Mohawk Racetrack in Milton, Ont. The facility, to be known as Woodbine, Mohawk Park is being upgraded and improved to become the permanent home to Canada's top harness racing meet. Thoroughbred racing will continue at Woodbine.

TROT Magazine asked racing fans and participants for their fondest memories of racing at Woodbine. Trot Insider will count down your list of the top 10 harness races ever held at Woodbine.


OCTOBER 19, 2001 - Bunny Lake entered the $812,292 Breeders Crown Three-Year-Old Pacing Filly final having won 15 races in a row. At odds of 2-5, Bunny Lake captured the Breeders Crown in 1:52.4, with John Stark Jr. driving and training.

Bunny Lake was bred locally by Peter Heffering of Port Perry, Ontario.

“I have no idea how she does it week after week,” said Stark. “She just shows up every week.”
