The cut-off date for the nominations was 15 February, with different stakes for different races.  Additionally, the remainder of the tickets for the highly anticipated Mohawk Million race were sold on the same day.  All purses are differentiated according to the submitted nominations, except for the Mohawk Million and Pepsi North America Cup events.

Unofficial Season Schedule Released

According to Jim Lawson, the CEO of Woodbine Entertainment, the 2021 standardbred season will commence in May, with approximately CA$20 million bet rewards up for grabs.  However, due to the ever-changing circumstances, it remains to be seen whether this will materialise.
