In addition Kawartha has requested three additional race dates, which would be added in October. This will be decided after April 1. Check this site for additional information once available.

Kawartha Downs enjoyed a great 2015 racing season, highlighted by a special retirement night for the outstanding trotter San Pail, Gord Brown night, the inaugural Goodtimes Invitational, Family Fun Night, Appreciation Night, the Celebration of the Horse, two memorial evenings, Ontario Sires Stakes and a KD Drivers’ challenge won by Tony Kerwood.
