The Jockey Club of Canada will host the 39th Annual Sovereign Awards Party to celebrate Thoroughbred racing in Canada and to honour the Canadian Champions of 2013, on Friday, April 11, 2014 at Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto.

The cocktail-attire celebration awards party will include an opportunity to walk the Sovereign Award Red Carpet upon arriving at the jazzy, champagne reception followed by a buffet-style gourmet dinner and the presentation of the Sovereign Award Trophies to Canada’s racing Champions of 2013 and Canada’s Horse of the Year.

“This year we are having a party,” stated Sovereign Award Committee Chair, Stacie Roberts, “We have booked a live jazz band to get people dancing as we celebrate the start of the 2014 Thoroughbred season in Canada. Even if you are not a finalist, you’re invited to come and have fun and help us celebrate Thoroughbred racing in Canada.”

This year’s event will once again be held on the eve of the start of Thoroughbred racing in Canada with Woodbine Racetrack’s 2014 Thoroughbred season beginning the next day at 1:00 pm (EST), Saturday, April 12.

Tickets are $250 each and tables of 10 are slightly discounted at $2400. All tickets are plus applicable taxes and must be reserved before April 4.
