A race that is held annually each September, the Northern Dancer Turf Stakes is always a thriller and is treated as a trial for the E.P. Taylor Stakes also held at Woodbine.
It’s been won by the same horse (Johnny Bear) for the last two years and is competed over a mile and a half distance, with a $300,000 purse.
Woodbine hosts both the first and third Triple Crown race, with the Breeders’ Stakes the closing event in August each year.
