Fort Erie Race Track Betting

Established in 1897, Fort Erie Race Track remains a popular summer destination for Canadian racing fans. Although the track has changed ownership several times and faced the brink of extinction in 2012, Fort Erie has remained popular among bettors as the only major dirt track in Canada. Fort Erie is notable as the home of the second jewel of the Canadian Triple Crown, the $500,000 Prince of Wales Stakes.

Following the Queen’s Plate and preceding the Breeders’ Stakes, the Prince of Wales officially became a part of the Canadian Triple Crown in 1959. The race was inaugurated in 1929 at the now defunct Thorncliffe Park Raceway outside of Toronto. Like the other Canadian Triple Crown races, the Prince of Wales is restricted to three-year-olds that were bred in Canada. The most famous winner of the Prince of Wales was the filly Dance Smartly who won the event in 1991 before going on to sweep the Triple Crown. Dance Smartly was elected to both the Canadian and United States Racing Halls of Fame for her accomplishments in both countries.

Fort Erie’s dirt surface is typically described as fair with little notable biases afforded to closers or speed types. The track is deeper than most American dirt surfaces, usually requiring a horse to be fit. For this reason, layoff horses may not perform as well as Fort Erie as at less demanding tracks. The usual Canadian betting fare including 20-cent pick 4 bets is offered at Fort Erie and remains popular among bettors throughout North America.

Dance Smartly was so dominant in her run to the 1991 Canadian Triple Crown that she won the three races by a combined 18 lengths. The flashy filly with a white star on her forehead gained notoriety for brilliance and later went on to win the Breeders’ Cup Distaff at Churchill Downs. Dance Smartly amassed over $3.2 million in her career and retired as the leading money earner among fillies.
