Toronto, Ontario is home to the Canadian racetrack Woodbine, which first saw the light in 1956 and has been extensively remodeled only since 1993. It now has three racecourses and it is the only North American racetrack which can stage thoroughbred and standardbred horse racing programs on the same day.

The current Woodbine racetrack received its name from another racetrack which was nowhere nearby, thus having to differentiate them by calling them “New” and “Old” Woodbine until 1963. The Woodbine name stuck to the new venue and the old venue changed its name to be Greenwood Raceway during standardbred meets, and Greenwood Race Track during thoroughbred meets. Later, the two Greenwood thoroughbred and standardbred meets were transferred to the new Woodbine facilities in 1994, which until then was exclusively focused on thoroughbred racing.

The 1976 Summer Paralympics used Woodbine as its opening venue; the Arlington Million was held there in 1988, and the Breeders' Cup was also held there in 1996. The venue is also home to the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame. It is also a regular host for the Breeders’ Crown.
