With the best horses in the country and a promising forecast, the Campbellville oval welcomes you for the 2014 Pepsi North America Cup featuring the richest Standardbred card of the year in Canada, featuring over $2.57 million in purse money, along with great food, prizes, a giveway, entertainment, and more.

The track has assembled an evening full of a wide variety of activities and events for you to experience Saturday evening. The party starts at 5:00 p.m. Register to receive your first bet free and if you’re one of the first 3,000 patrons to register, you will also receive a free souvenir NA Cup hat.

Country artist Amy Rose will be performing the National Anthem at 5:30 p.m. and returning later in the evening for a concert. On the tarmac, you can meet the drivers, where they will be signing autographs and commemorative postcards from 5:45 p.m. to 6:15 p.m.

Throughout the evening, try award-winning ribs from Silver Bullet BBQ or Blazin’ BBQ. Learn new betting strategies from the Horseplayer Now’s Night Team.
