Grade 1 Thoroughbred Horse Races Canada

Grade 1 Thoroughbred Horse Races are the premier Horse Races in Canada. For some 50 years now Canada has also had its own Triple Crown Thoroughbred Horse Racing competition for 3-year-old Canadian born thoroughbred horses. The Triple Crown winner has to triumph in all three thoroughbred races - The Queen's Plate, Prince of Wales Stakes & the Breeders' Stakes.

The Woodbine track is the leading Thoroughbred Racecourse in Canada. This Ontario racecourse hosts both the Queen's Plate & Breeders' Stakes. It is the only track that has Thoroughbred & Harness Racing on the same day. (Harness racing, also termed standardbred, is more popular than Thoroughbred racing in Canada. The Prince of Wales Stakes is held at Fort Erie racetrack.
