Pepsi North America Cup excitement extends far beyond its host track of Mohawk. Fans at Kawartha Downs tomorrow night will be able to watch and wager on the special card from the Campbellville, Ontario, racetrack. In addition to the $1 million NA Cup, the program includes a myriad of the sports’ superstars in the Armbro Flight, Mohawk Gold Cup, NA Cup Consolation, Fan Hanover, Goodtimes, Roses Are Red and Preferred races.
The NA Cup is slated as race 12 on the program with a 10:40 post time and Kawartha Downs will keep the concession stand and bar open to accommodate fans who wish to stay and watch and wager on one of the most elite Standardbred races in North America.
We will feature a special NA Cup contest where fans may select the horse they think will win the rich final. After the race is complete we’ll select a name from the winning horse’s ballot box and the winner will take home a prize package of North America Cup and Kawartha Downs’ merchandise. Mohawk has generously shared some NA Cup swag with KD fans and it will be offered as prizes through trivia contests in the time leading up to the final.
Prior to the NA Cup, Kawartha offers a 10 race card of racing with a 7 p.m. post time. New General Manager Orazio Valente will be barbequing hot dogs and giving them away (with a coupon from the program), there will also be draws and giveaways throughout the evening including a special Dine With Dad promotion to celebrate Father’s Day.
