Check out the Commemorative Miles that were held across Canada this year
Racetracks, training centres, agricultural societies, communities, farms and fans are invited to take part in honouring Canada’s racing history by hosting a commemorative mile.
~ Hold a 250th Anniversary race day highlighting your track and ~ Post parades or exhibition races using antique race bikes and buggies harkening back to days gone by.
~ Participate in a community parade with a float or entry that represents local horse racing history. The miles of the parade can count as commemorative miles.
~ Hold an open house at your training centre for farm, invite the public to visit and experience what horse racing is all about, display memorabilia and trophies representing your accomplishments and history, offer rides around the training track, hold stick horse races for the kids.
~ Contact your local agricultural society about participating in this year’s fair or festival and help them showcase the role horse racing has played in your community.
