Greenwood Stakes @ Woodbine Racetrack (Sat. May 26)

by Kimberly Samnang

Toronto’s new fashion-forward event kicked off the summer at the Woodbine racetrack on Saturday, May 26.

The Kentucky Derby meets The Great Gatsby with the Greenwoods Stakes – a heart-pumping day at the races filled with thoroughbred racing, fashion, art, cocktails, lawn games and more.

Modeled after the Deighton Cup – dubbed by press and attendees as Vancouver’s biggest fashion and social affair of the summer, attracting more than 5,000 people every year – our friends, event producers Droski Marketing and the Social Concierge, launched a sister event in Toronto called the Greenwood Stakes.

At the track we revelled in the excitement of the races, red carpet moments, champagne sabering, live music, art installations, gourmet food designed by Woodbine Racetrack’s culinary team and a notable guest chef. The centerpiece was the running of 10 thrilling thoroughbred stakes races.

We would like to thank Julie Schmidt from Holmes PR for this invitation.
