Get ready to place your bets in 2024!

After leaving Winnipeg for 30 years, live harness racing returned to the city once again in 2023. In the summer of 2024, come see the best of Manitoba’s standardbred horses at The Loop, the brand new racetrack and venue at Red River Exhibition Park.

About Harness Racing

Harness racing is a form of horse racing in which the horses race at a specific gait (a trot or pace). They pull a two-wheeled cart called a sulky. Committed to the promotion and success of the sport, Manitoba Harness Racing offers a helpful FAQ page on the specifics of the sport and how to wager on it.
