Woodbine to honor 43 horses that died in barn fire


ETOBICOKE, Ontario – Woodbine will commemorate the 43 horses that perished in a barn fire last Monday during Thursday night’s Standardbred card.

The horses were housed at Classy Lane Stables, a Standardbred training center that is located about an hour west of Toronto, near Guelph, Ontario.

The tribute will begin at 6:50 p.m. Eastern with a video presentation of the fallen horses, which will be followed by a minute of silence. The tribute can be watched online at www.woodbineentertainment.com and across North America on Woodbine’s simulcast feed.

A GoFundMe page has been set up by the Central Ontario Standardbred Association to support those impacted by the fire.
