In honour of the 10th anniversary of Vancouver’s Deighton Cup, which has been dubbed as one of Vancouver’s most anticipated event of the summer, event producers Parade Agency and The Social Concierge are launching its sister event, Greenwood Stakes, in Toronto this spring.

On Saturday, May 26, the Greenwood Stakes will be taking over Woodbine Racetrack for an afternoon of high stakes horse races, style contest, lawn games, a cocktail showcase with Toronto’s top mixologists, and more.

This fashion-forward day at the races will play host to over 1,000 dapper gentlemen and stylish ladies alike, who will all be popping bottles of bubbly and enjoying games of chance as they embrace the spring season in style.

With thundering thoroughbreds as the focus of the day, there will be 10 thrilling high stakes races happening throughout the day, and the winning horse will win $175,000.

There will also be two $500 cash prizes for the best-dressed guests up for grabs, so you’re going to want to start planning out your outfit soon.

Seersucker suits, fascinators, and Southern Belle-inspired attire is definitely encouraged.
