The $6.7 million Breeders Crown, harness racing’s richest and most prestigious year-end divisional championship series, returns in the last weekend of October 2022 to Woodbine Mohawk Park in Campbellville, Ontario.
All Breeders Crown divisions are now guaranteed at $600,000, with the exception of the Open Mare Pace and Trot which have been raised to a minimum of $350,000.
Eliminations, if necessary, for freshman races will be held Friday (Oct. 21), with 3-year-old and older eliminations raced Saturday (Oct. 22). Finals for 2-year-olds get underway the next Friday (Oct. 28), with sophomore finals and open events following on Saturday (Oct. 29).
Woodbine Entertainment last hosted all 12 events in 2019, smashing handle and attendance records at the seven-eighths-mile track, with $11.1 million wagered over the four fall nights. The 2019 events were capped by a sensational victory in the Crown Trot by French star Bold Eagle, who retired with earnings of $5,878,322.
