Fredericton Raceway History
The Fredericton raceway is the oldest horse racing site in Canada with the very first racetrack becoming operational in 1863. The site was moved to the present location in 1887 in order to make room for the railway passing through the area. In 1959 Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip attended their first Harness Race event at Fredericton making history in the town.
The racecourse today is part of the Fredericton Exhibition Grounds and is owned and operated by Horse Racing New Brunswick offering live harness racing from July until September.
The grandstand offers seating for 2,000 spectators at $2 and clubhouse seating is free as is the parking at the facility. A fully equipped exhibition hall / conference centre of 20,000 square feet is available for hire.
