Woodbine is one of the top tracks in North American but sometimes gets overlooked as a Canadian track. Horse players will certainly zero in on Woodbine Saturday as the best card of the weekend is north of the border on Saturday. Also looking strong this week is Monmouth Park. Horse racing has enjoyed a strong renaissance thanks to COVID-19 as gamblers returned to the tracks when all of the other major sports were shut down. Since the return of the major stick and ball sports gamblers have stuck with the ponies as well. This weekend is a great example as to why that is.
