Woodbine Entertainment today announced 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.  

TSN will have a special live one-hour broadcast of the $1 million Pepsi North America Cup, airing from 10-11 p.m. The simulcast of the entire Pepsi North America Cup will be available on HPItv, Woodbine Mohawk Park’s official website and HPIbet.com.

The 37th Pepsi North America Cup will feature the finest three-year-old pacers from across the continent competing for $1 million. More than $2 million in purses will be up for grabs on the Pepsi North America Cup card.
