Description


FREE EVENT - we need to register as a group to get the perks though!

Invitation from: Standard Bred Canada to Kia Ora Canada:

These events are open to the public and we thought Kia Ora Canada might want to consider coming out to watch the competition at one of the Ontario Legs.

Eleven drivers from around the world, including Dexter Dunn/Mark Purdon of New Zealand will compete in 22 races at five racetracks in four provinces to determine who the World Champion is.

It’s time to show the world what we’ve got, EH!

This summer Standardbred Canada is proud to present the 2017 World Driving Championship!

The championship begins in August with two of the five leg competition taking place in Ontario. One of the legs will be at Georgian Downs in Innisfil on Tuesday, August 15.

Canada will host eleven drivers from around the world who have qualified in their respective countries to compete and determine who will be the 2017 World Driving Champion and win $25,000 in prize money!

Canada previously hosted the WDC in 1973, 1989 and 2003. To date, Canadian drivers have won the world championship four times, but never on home soil, we hope this will be our year!

The WDC also coincides with the 250th anniversary of horse racing in Canada and Canada 150 celebrations.

Harness racing driver Brandon Campbell of Calgary, AB., is Canada’s representative and we would like to invite Kia Ora Canada to attend the races, cheer your country to victory and enjoy a social evening out together!

The racing action starts at 7:15 p.m. and admission and parking are always free.

Below is an outline of what is included for your group if you would be interested in attending!
