Management at The Raceway at Western Fair District is advising horsepeople that beginning this Friday (March 20), qualifiers have been moved to 5:00 p.m. until further notice. Training at the WFD has also been cancelled until further notice.

A maximum of two qualifying races (14 horses) will be run each qualifying day and participants are advised that the qualifying horses will stable in races 11 and 12 in the race paddock. No other horses will be permitted for schooling or training, and participants will be asked to vacate in a timely manner following completion of the qualifying races.

There is currently a screening process in place for those licenced participants entering the paddock to race, so please leave yourself extra time when shipping to the track. This process is critical to the continuation of racing and management expects full co-operation from horsepeople.

Horse people are also reminded of the following additional precautions when coming to race:

  • Do not congregate in the paddock to socialize – practice social distancing

  • If you are feeling sick, stay home

  • Following each race, horsepeople are asked to bath and load their horses as quickly as possible and exit the paddock within 30 minutes

  • Participants will also have their temperature taken upon arrival at the paddock gate

Western Fair District would like to thank horsepeople for their co-operation and will continue to update the situation.
