Canadian Thoroughbred – EIA Quarantine Causes Removal of Manitoba Derby from Series

Western Canadian Derby Series

$100,000 Bonus offered for winner of all three races

Joining forces once again, Assiniboia Downs, Century Mile Racetrack and Casino, and Hastings Racecourse and Casino are set to deliver another powerhouse racing program with their combined Derby series during the 2024 racing season.

The second year of the newly named Western Canadian Derby Series comprises the prestigious $125,000 Manitoba Derby, scheduled for August 5 at Assiniboia Downs in Winnipeg, Manitoba; the renowned $200,000 G3 Canadian Derby at Century Mile in Edmonton, Alberta on August 24; and the highly anticipated $125,000 G3 BC Derby at Hastings Racecourse in Vancouver, British Columbia on September 14.

The series will offer a $100,000 bonus for the horse that is able to win all three races. While this would be a remarkable feat, it is quite possible with the timing of the scheduled events, making it a great opportunity for those who have a talented 3-year-old. In addition, this year there will be a points system introduced to the program that will provide $25,000 in bonuses. Read more here.
