May 1, 2019 – Toronto, On – This Saturday Woodbine Entertainment is hosting the third annual Derby Day Party at its Toronto racetrack in celebration of the 145th running of the Kentucky Derby.


Beginning at 12 noon, this year’s event will be held in the Post Parade Dining Room, providing party-goers with a unique vantage point to take in Woodbine’s live racing action throughout the day.


The fashionable experience will feature Kentucky-inspired cocktails and gourmet food stations, the return of the fabulous Derby Day Best Dressed Contest with a $500 grand prize and live music from The Lonely Hearts, a high energy quartet with a vast repertoire of music to keep the party going all day long.


Woodbine’s internationally-trained culinary team will serve up a new Southern-style menu created for this year’s Derby Day Party including 24-Hour Smoked Prime Beef Brisket, Rolled Chesapeake Oyster and Crab, Roasted Nectarine Benedictine Tea Sandwiches, Salted Caramel Cheesecake and Bourbon Pecan Balls.
