Woodbine is interesting for a day out. It offers up a bit of everything. Some food, some drinks, some entertainment and some gambling. The grandstand looks like it needs a bit of work, but the one thing I noticed was that despite no smoking signs everywhere, there were many people smoking away. This, for me, makes me think twice about... More

If you want to be entertained for a day or possibly the night...betting on the horses is a lucky shot.

We took my daughter there last week to watch the horse races and had a great time. It is very large and there are lots of places to sit. There are all kinds of concession stand type snacks and I did see a nice restaurant but didn't go in. They have all kinds of TVs set up so you can... More

First time at Queen's Plate I will go again! High fashion, horse racing fun & winning! Theme was hats & horseshoes. It's s 156 years old. Canada is 148 years old. Lots of history and tradition. You can do it all for free if you choose.

My wife and I went to woodbine to see the queen's plate, besides the fact that this place was crazy and overcrowded, this place needs an overhaul of their existing facilities,our seats were reserved on the fourth floor which is seldom used unless for special occasions which this was,for the price we had to pay very uncorfatable seats, atmosphere was...

Went to Woodbine for the Queens Plate. Had lots of fun. This day was a real outing for many as the grounds were packed with people dressed up nicely and the ladies had big hats and facinators. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Casino is quite large, although busy there were still a lot of machines to chose from... More

This track was beautiful and the staff so helpful/accommodating. The food court was clean and food very good. Definitely worth a stop by if in Toronto if you like the ponies.

We had a really fun afternoon at this racecourse....we brought four young children aged 3 and below to and afternoon race meeting and at no point did this feel uncomfortable or did we think that it wasn't the right environment for them. The grandstand is clean and spacious, the staff and patrons appear friendly- the lady behind the counter was... More

Great Racetrack, free to go in, you only pay for food, drinks, bets and the slot machines. We saw a few races, visited the Hall of Fame which was very interesting. Got to see some of the horses in the parade ring before they raced. Drinks are on the expensive side, but taking in to account the free entry not... More
