A field of 14 Horses will run for a purse of one million dollars in the 156th Queens Plate at Woodbine this afternoon.
The race features the best Canadian-bred three-year-olds.
Founded in 1860, The Queen’s Plate is Canada’s oldest thoroughbred horse race and the oldest continuously run race in North America.
It runs a 1 1⁄4 miles with a maximum of 17 three-year-old thoroughbred horses foaled in Canada.
It’s first race in the Canadian Triple Crown.
