You would think an event such as this is only for the rich, not true. There are tickets available that are extremely affordable. Until June 18th, general admission tickets for the two days are $45.00. With service fees and print-at-home feature the total cost is $55.00. This includes a Friday night concert by the one and only Brad Paisley, Saturday’s horse racing and another concert by The Sam Roberts Band.

Prices go up On June 19, 2018. Buy your tickets before and use the saving to bet on a winning horse.


Lots to see and do at the Queen’s Plate. I assure you that you will have a wonderful time.  Did I mention you can wear a hat?  In fact, there is a best hat completion?  People watching would be worth the $55 alone, its like a real life trendy fashion magazine.

Betting on the horses

I have no idea who has a shot of winning or not, but betting makes it races even more exciting. Hold your horses (pun intended) This is an OLG regulated event and responsible gambling messages are all over the place. Minimum bet $2.00, that not a typo it’s only $2.00. Pick your favourite horse name and bet two bucks. You can choose to Win, to Place (come in 2nd) or to Finish (come in top 3) or bet two bucks on all three. So many other ways to bet, but since I know nothing about horse races and betting I keep it very simple. Click here for more horse photos


So dress nice, bring a few bucks and have a great time at the Woodbine Race Track. Send me your selfies at the Queen’s plate and I will post them for the world to see.

Have fun and good luck!
