Aside from a million-dollar horse race, a stakes-laden undercard, and a mandatory payout for the High-5 Jackpot with a carryover of almost $500,000, the 2016 Pepsi North America Cup has loads of entertainment and offerings for fans!

Doors open at 5:00 p.m. There’s a beer garden, food trucks and award winning ribs that will quench your thirst and appetites! Some of North America’s best drivers will be signing autographs at 5:45 p.m.

The event host for the evening is Monica Platek, a specialist in Social and Interactive Media for Sports. Platek worked for the Toronto Maple Leafs for six seasons, spent two years working as the Social Media Lead for Hockey Night in Canada and worked the Olympics in 2010, 2012 and 2014.

Canadian country music artist Andrew Hyatt, a native of Sudbury, Ontario, will take the stage to entertain fans, sure to play his debut radio single Love Drunk and follow-up single Livin’ The Dream.

Fans 18 years of age and over will be able to sign up for a free bet and also receive a snazzy 2016 NA Cup hat (limited to first 2,500 people to sign up). Fans who register for the free bet will be entered into a draw to win a $1,000 win bet on the 2016 Pepsi North America Cup race.

Stop by Standardbred Canada’s I Love Canadian Harness Racing Fan Club Booth and enter the “Pick The Winner” contest for your chance to win a great prize package, and pick up a free copy of Trot magazine. Don’t forget to check out the Fan Club’s summer swag along with special edition 40th anniversary Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame souvenirs and merchandise all available for you to purchase!

Landmark Racing, The Stable, The SBOA (Standardbred Breeders of Ontario Association), Standardbred Showcase and SLS Equine will all have booths set up on Cup Night as well as the Ontario Standardbred Adoption Society (OSAS) who will be set up outside the main entrance with one of their horses.

Post time for the first race is 6:30 p.m. The three-year-old pacing colts will go postward at 10:40 p.m. in race 12 for The Pepsi North America Cup.
