15% Purse Increase For Flamboro Meet
March 11, 2023 - Flamboro Downs has increased its purses by 15 per
cent, effective Saturday, March 11, 2023.
This increase will continue until the end of the current meet on May 28, 2023. This increase is due to a number of weather-related cancelled race dates and less than expected number of races per card.
Brett MacDonald Hits $10-Million Milestone
January 21, 2023 - In his first drive of the night and the first race of the card on Saturday (Jan. 21) at Flamboro Downs, Brett MacDonald nabbed a victory which sent him to the seven-digit stratosphere.
Leaving from post 7 in the $8,400 event, Brett MacDonald motored Richard Moreau trainee Got Charlie to the point and cleared after a :28.3 first quarter. Facing nothing but respect on the front through a :58 half and 1:29.1 three-quarters, Got Charlie just had to withstand the live charge of Rock On Harriett in the lane and did so by three-quarter lengths in 2:00.3. The winning share of the purse by the four-year-old Sportswriter mare just landed MacDonald over $10 million in career earnings.
J Bradley Harris Wins No. 2000
December 28, 2022 - J Bradley Harris had four drives coming into the
Wednesday night (Dec. 28) card at Flamboro Downs and sat four wins away
from the 2,000-win milestone. Scoring a grand slam with his lone
assignments, J Harris entered the 2,000-win club.
Harris opened the evening swiftly with a 1:59 win by Senior Advisor. Later, he steered odds-on favourite Rock N Row to a coast-to-coast victory in 1:56.1 and followed with a 1:55.2 post-to-pillar win by favoured Ponderance. In the last race on the card, Harris slid off a pocket trip with Ship Disturber to his 2,000th victory to wrap the night batting a thousand.
This season is Harris's first year with over 100 wins and a $1 million in purses since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020. Harris, having driven since 2005, has earned $12 million in purses and sits tied for seventh on the Flamboro Downs driving leaderboard.
Travis Henry Notches 2,000th Driving Win
October 26, 2022 - Driver Travis Henry celebrated a career milestone on
the Wednesday evening (Oct. 26) card at Flamboro Downs.
Henry earned his 2,000th career victory with Blake MacIntosh trainee Sports Fan in the eighth race on the Flamboro card. The pair got away fifth off the car and after a :28 first quarter, followed cover on the outside behind Ifudontchewbigred (Travis Cullen). Unchanged, they continued in the outer flow through the :58.2 half. At the 1:27.3 third quarter, Henry pulled Sports Fan three-wide, meeting the leading Premier Nacho (Jason Ryan) eye-to-eye in the turn for home. Henry and Sports Fan continued surging forward on to a 2-1/4-length victory in 1:57.4. Premier Nacho finished second and Counter Offer (Michael Whelan) finished third.
After his win with the three-year-old colt by Sportswriter out of the Western Ideal mare My Ideal, Henry upgraded his season win total to 265, ranking him in the top five drivers in Canada by wins.

DWs Point Man Breaks Track Record
September 4, 2022 - DWs Point Man stole the show as the province's top
trotting freshmen clashed in four $100,000-plus Ontario Sires Stakes (OSS)
Gold divisions on what became opening night at Flamboro Downs on Sunday
