For 25 years, fans at Woodbine Racetrack have witnessed some of harness racing's best horses and some of Canadian harness racing's greatest memories.

Over that time, the track has hosted 13 North America Cups, 11 Breeders Crowns and countless other events.

March marks the final full month of Standardbred racing at Woodbine, and in the Greater Toronto Area. After the April 9, 2018 program, harness racing will permanently move to Mohawk Racetrack in Milton, Ont. The facility, to be known as Woodbine, Mohawk Park is being upgraded and improved to become the permanent home to Canada's top harness racing meet. Thoroughbred racing will continue at Woodbine.

TROT Magazine asked racing fans and participants for their fondest memories of racing at Woodbine. Trot Insider will count down your list of the top 10 harness races ever held at Woodbine.

#8: ODIE TAKES ON THE WORLD

AUGUST 28, 1999 - After dominating Ontario Sires Stakes company, the 1999 Fan Hanover Stakes for three-year-old pacing fillies was the test of a lifetime for Odies Fame. After being the odds-on favourite in her 17 previous starts, Odies Fame came into the elimination and final of the Fan Hanover at odds of 5-1 and 4-1, respectively.

In the $291,000 final, the Glengate Farms-bred filly proved that she was as good as any of them, going wire-to-wire in 1:52.4 for trainer Harold Wellwood and driver Dave Wall.
