Three years ago Kawartha Downs introduced the Goodtimes Invitational to honour the Hall of Fame trotter who started and ended his incredible career at the Fraserville oval. It is the track’s signature race and this year will anchor the Titans of Trotting night which honours Goodtimes as well as two other Hall of Fame trotters and multiple award winners, San Pail and Billyjojimbob, who also began their careers at Kawartha Downs.
When new management took over Kawartha earlier this year, they refreshed the interior of the grandstand tremendously. Part of that makeover was the rebranding of the downstairs bar and the obvious new name was the Goodtimes. That was followed up by the creation of track’s signature beverage, the Goodtimes Smash. A wonderfully refreshing drink, it features assorted berries and lemon with vodka and sparkling wine. A virgin version is also available.
The Goodtimes Smash may be purchased in the Goodtimes bar, the grandstand dining room and in the upstairs bar as well. This year’s Goodtimes Invitational is slated for September 2, which is the second our Kawartha’s elevated purse nights.
