It’s hard to believe it’s been six months since I kicked off the racing season at Woodbine Racetrack – time flies when you’re having fun and the sun is shining! During the 2015 racing season, I went #OffToTheRaces for four events at Woodbine.


I wouldn’t call myself a gambler by any means, but Woodbine offers your first bet free at many of their racing events and it’s always fun to pick a pony and see what happens!

As usual, parking, admission and your first bet are also FREE.

Do you consider yourself a coffee lover? If so, you’ve no doubt witnessed the Flat White frenzy that’s taken North America by storm and I’ll bet you’ve jumped on that bandwagon! Not sure what this mysteriously caffeinated buzz is all about? Keep reading! My friends at Second Cup Coffee Co. recently invited me to an educational Flat White tasting in downtown Toronto.

We pulled up bar stools at the beautifully renovated King and John location (which is open until 1am throughout TIFF) and got ready to sip and learn – a perfectly caffeinated opportunity after the long weekend! Our Flat White tasting was led by Pat Russell, Senior Product Developer and passionate Second Cup employee since 1996 – a true coffee lover!

Last month I was so excited to attend the Queen’s Plate at Woodbine Racetrack – I had my outfit all picked out (thanks to David’s Bridal) and I was looking forward to seeing the red carpet fashion and fascinators at the Hats & Horseshoes Party. Unfortunately, I sustained an injury prior to the event and couldn’t go (pout), but on the bright side, I’m feeling better and #OffToTheRaces this Sunday for the 125th Breeders’ Stakes!

What’s the Breeders’ Stakes? It’s the third and final leg in the Canadian Triple Crown and the winner receives $500,000! Race time is 1pm this Sunday August 16th and my friends at Woodbine Racetrack invite you to take your first bet on them! Better yet, you could WIN a $1000 Woodbine gift card for simply snapping a selfie of yourself at the track and posting it to Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #OffToTheRaces!
