I've been to numerous racetracks such as Woodbine & Greenwood Racetrack but this is the very first time I've visited the Mohawk Racetrack in Campbellville, Ontario which is just 1hr away from Toronto. It is only recently that I'm learning all the intricacies of horse racing but it's been an exciting way to learn & begin!
The Pepsi North American Cup at Mohawk Racetrack is one of the largest Canadian Races in horse racing. The attendance for this event was at capacity as a $1 million purse was at stake. Mohawk Racetrack has numerous entertainment activities for everyone to enjoy. Some of the highlights include live music, Rib & Food Truck Corral and "Beerville" Beer Gardens. The atmosphere at Mohawk Racetrack was amazing with so many different activities to participate in. My first experience at Mohawk was to try the variety of food options available. They have an area dedicated to Food Trucks and a BBQ stand. The mouthwatering BBQ ribs are amazing and you must give it a try the next time you visit Mohawk Racetrack.

The atmosphere at the Pepsi North American Cup was like being at a big backyard party. Join me in this blog series as I experience & learn more about Horse Racing at Mohawk Racetrack. The winning horse of the Pepsi North American Cup was Wakizashi Hanover-Breeders are from Halifax. I learned that the breeding of the horse can also play a factor in the betting. I bet you didn't even know that horses sweat. All of this plays into the betting of a horse race, see I'm learning here!

I had the opportunity to see the reserved seating and dining area at Mohawk and look forward to this experience on my next blog. They have a terrace dining room so for those who know me, know that I will definitely be placing bets on that one!
