Woodbine Entertainment has announced that the upcoming 37th Pepsi North America Cup on Saturday, August 29 at Mohawk Park will not be open to the general public.
This year’s event will be invite-only to a very limited number of guests in order to comply with the current capacity limits imposed by the province of Ontario due to COVID-19.
“This year’s fall stakes schedule at Woodbine Mohawk Park is unprecedented and it all kicks off with the Pepsi North America Cup on August 29,” said Jim Lawson, CEO, Woodbine Entertainment. “We wish we could welcome our fans to the race this year, but the health and safety of our guests, employees, horsepeople and community remains paramount. We hope everyone tunes in online or on TSN as it’s going to be a great night of racing.”
Invitations will be extended by Woodbine in order of connections competing in the Pepsi North America Cup, horses racing in undercard stakes and horses competing in overnights. Woodbine will also extend invitations to a select number of dignitaries and high-volume horseplayers.
Fans watching from home will be able to enjoy the entire Pepsi North America Cup card through a variety of platforms.
