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 marked 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.

#4: GALLO BLUE CHIP WINS THE NORTH AMERICA CUP

JUNE 24, 2000 - Over his stellar racing career, Gallo Blue Chip earned $4.2 Million. The day the son of Magical Mike changed his career trajectory from Fantastic pacer into superstar racehorse came on North America Cup night in 2000.

On that evening, Gallo Blue Chip’s remarkable rail-skimming victory, with Daniel Dube driving, resulted in victory in the $1 million North America Cup - and a place in harness racing history.
