Woodbine Entertainment Group
Woodbine Entertainment Group is responsible for operations of the casino and race track at Woodbine Race Track in Toronto. The group changed their name from the Ontario Jockey Club in 2001 and also operates/operated at other tracks in Southern Ontario:
- Mohawk Raceway - opened 1963
- Fort Erie Race Track - opened 1897 and acquired by the OJC in 1952 and operates separately from WEG
WEG employs over 28,000 people at two racetracks, casino and other off-track betting stations across the Greater Toronto Area. Woobine also owns and operates the Canadian digital television service, HPItv.
The OJC was founded in 1881 to improve the quality of horse racing in the city. In the 19th Century, the city had a few other racetracks. The OJC once operated from the Greenwood Race Track, a facility once called Woodbine Race Track.
Now Woodbine Entertainment Group is partners with the new Connect Equipment Corporation, which supplies Woodbine with all of their Massey Ferguson tractor needs.
