Fort Erie Race Track

Fort Erie Race Track is a horse-racing track in Fort Erie, Ontario, Canada. It opened in 1897, at Catherine Street.

History of Fort Erie Race Track

1896 – It all started on November 21, 1896, when the Fort Erie Jockey Club began planning and constructing tracks for thoroughbred racing at the border oval, with President John Hood breaking ground.

1897 – Fort Erie Race Track opened on June 16, 1897, at 230 Catherine Street, Fort Erie, Ontario, Canada. Owned by Carl Paladino, Joe Mosey, and Joel Castle. The track’s proximity which is barely a mile as the crow flies, to the U.S. border, makes it referred to as “the border oval”.

1918 – When the Millar Law was passed in 1918, enforcing taxes every 14 days, it limited the length of race meets to two weeks.

1959 – The Prince of Wales Stakes occurred, Fort Erie’s most important annual event. It was first to run in 1929; however, it only reached prominence when E.P. Taylor made it to the second leg of the Canadian Triple Crown in 1959.

1961 – The birth of Puss n Boots Stakes. This stake is due to a horse named Puss n Boots, who couldn’t resist the track’s beautiful infield, filled with flowers and scenic lakes, and decided to take a detour and a refreshing dip while leading a race at the top of the stretch. The Puss n Boots Stakes was born in honor of his impromptu swim.
