There will be Derby Day Festivities at Kawartha Downs

Harness racing fans will be invited to a special Derby Day event later this month. The event is titled Derby Day and it encourages everyone to wear their derby hats and semi-formal attire and come to the track on July 23, 2022, to enjoy exceptional harness racing as well as complimentary cocktails, dinner, desserts, and prizes.

One of the most prominent horse racing facilities in Ontario is located in Fraserville. The track was established in 1972 and is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. Slot games, concerts, and many community events can be found at the facility, as well as elite harness racing.

Everyone is invited to Derby Day on July 23, 2022, as the track is teaming up with the Cavan Monaghan Township to bring guests an unforgettable night of harness racing. Attendees are encouraged to put on their derby hats, dress up nicely, and enjoy complimentary cocktails, desserts, and prizes at the venue.

The special event will take place at the facility’s dining room, which offers a great view of the racing oval, according to the track administration. The price for tickets for the indoor event is CA$50 per person, CA$180 for a table of four, and CA$240 for a table of six.

A complimentary signature cocktail, dinner, dessert, and prizes will be included in each ticket. There will be racing at 6 p.m. before the Derby Day event kicks off. Those who attend the regularly scheduled harness races will not have to buy an event ticket. A ticket is required for the festivities at the club.

The Fraserville track is celebrating its 50 years of incredible operations during the summer. There will be a kids night at the races this Saturday. There will be an Agricultural Day and Tractor Pull on August 5, 2022, and a demolition derby on August 6, 2022. There are even more events planned for September.

At the end of last year, the owner of the harness track, Romspen Investment Corp., announced that it has some significant overhaul plans for the property. Expanding gaming operations at the site, as well as bringing a hotel, an indoor and outdoor concert venue, an entertainment amphitheatre, sports amenities, new residential homes, and much more, is one of the things the company is considering.

In January of this year, the Millbrook Business Improvement Area received a donation from Kawartha Downs. There is a three-year commitment between the two to bring support to local businesses. Two more donations of CA$25,000 will be given to the BIA in the years of 2023 and 2024.

Break out your derby hats and semi-formal attire, Kawartha Downs is hosting a Derby Day on July 23.
