ELORA, ONGrand River Raceway heads into the final month of the 2020 race season with plenty of momentum, due to support from wagering from customers throughout North America. Through the end of August, all source wagering on Grand River Raceway cards was $9,998,731 an increase of 21% over the same number of dates in 2019.

With the total number of races slightly less this year, 380 races v 387 races in 2019, the average per race handle was $26,312. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, most wagering is occurring remotely, as a limited number of guests have been permitted at the racetrack as of July 27th.

With 10 dates remaining on the 2020 calendar, note that as racing continues Monday, Wednesday, and Friday nights, there is no racing Labour Day September 7th.
