The superb Charlottetown Racing Park opened its doors in 1889 and today attracts many people from all over the world to see the racing on Prince Edward Island which is often referred to as the ‘Kentucky of Canada’. In 2005 the fabulous Red Shores entertainment centre was opened at the race park featuring a three level Top of the Park restaurant, a new grandstand and a casino.
The original judge’s stand has been restored and still stands as a protected historical building in the middle of the field. The starting gate dating back to 1948 and the first gate of its kind in Canada, was also restored at the same time as the judges stand in 1999.
