Members of OSAS and CARD will be putting on riding displays in Woodbine Racetrack's thoroughbred walking ring this Saturday at the Toronto oval during WEG's first Community Day.

The one-day event will shine the spotlight on Woodbine's valued industry and community partners, who will have interactive displays and interesting demonstrations, to which all the public are welcome.

"Woodbine Entertainment Group (WEG) is proud of its partnerships in the Toronto community," said Jane Holmes, WEG vice president, Corporate Affairs. "We invite all local residents to soak up the atmosphere of a Saturday afternoon at the races, meet members of their community, and speak to representatives from the service and charitable groups that keep our community healthy and safe."

Toronto Fire Department will have fire truck demonstrations during the event. Along with OSAS, members of CARD (Community Association For Riding for the Disabled) will be putting on the riding demonstrations.

Blacksmith Mike Dunslow will demonstrate how a horse is shod; Dr. Brian Van Arem will have a veterinary demonstration, and starter Drew Brown will show fans how the starting gate works. Backstretch tours will also be available.

Community Day is designed to be fun for the whole family. Children can take advantage of musicians, free pony rides, face painting and other activities in Woodbine's Family Fun Area, located just west of the walking ring. Special food deals available for children.

The day will kick off at 11:00 a.m.
