The Breeders’ Stakes is the third and final race of the Canadian Triple Crown.  It is a 12 furlong (1.5 mile) race that mimics the Belmont Stakes Race of the US Triple Crown.  The Breeders’ Stakes is run at the end of the summer (usually in August or September) at Woodbine Racetrack in Etobicoke, Ontario (Toronto).

The racebooks listed below each take bets on the Breeders’ Stakes race and are all respected and trusted within the industry.  That being said I highly recommend that Canadian bettors place their Breeders’ Stakes bets through  BetOnline accepts players from around the world including Canada and the USA, and they take bets on all races at Woodbine Racetrack.

Breeders’ Stakes History

The Breeders’ Stakes was first run way back in 1889 when it was won by a horse named Helen Leigh. The Canadian Triple Crown was established in 1959 and since then only 7 horses have completed this feat. The most recent Canadian Triple Crown winner is Wando, who won the honour back in 2003. Since then two horses have won both the Queen’s Plate and Prince of Wales Stakes (Wonder Gadot in 2018 and Mighty Heart in 2020), but neither horse won the Breeders’ Stakes to complete the Triple Crown. Needless the say the race receives much more attention when there is the possibility of a Triple Crown winner.
