The pop-up events have been designated for horses who participated in a minimum of ten races during the 2021 live racing season but didn’t manage to win more than CA$25,000. The events are made up of three legs and a final, with CA$30,000 in purses for the biggest earner.
Further Details on the Races Announced
Woodbine Mohawk Park informed the public that third-leg entries are now open and can be submitted to the track for horses that started in one of the first two legs. The racecourse also noted that there would be consolation offered depending on the number of entries. Moreover, the fields for the finals and the tiered consolations would consist of the highest earners.
The racetrack revealed that the third leg would have a CA$30,000 purse final with two consolations, each worth CA$20,000 and CA$15,000, respectively.
