Hi there kids!

I hope you've got your running shoes ready for the races this Friday! No, silly, not just the horse races. The Giddy Up & Gallop Kids Fun Run at Grand River Raceway on July 17!

I've been doing my stretches and galloping all over the paddock to get ready for the mascot race. The other mascots won't know what happened when I trot past them at lightning speed!

Will you be at Grand River on Friday night? Registration starts at 5:30 with the kids race at 6:50, after the horses finish up their second race. The cost to participate is $25 and for a really awesome cause, the Community Resource Centre of North and Centre Wellington. Giddy Up & Gallop has raised money for lots of cool groups in the past that help people all over Canada!

The race is half a mile, one lap of Grand River's racetrack. Don't you want to race on the track the horses do? I know I'm excited!

See you on Friday!

Hey kids!

Last weekend I was at Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto for the Doors Open event that is going on all over the province! We went for behind the scenes tours of the track, met cool jockeys and trainers and saw lots of pretty horses. I got to hang out at the West entrance to the track and greet people as they arrived.

The best part of my day was seeing all of you! Here's a picture with one of my biggest fans.

My favourite thing at the track was the Hall of Fame. It was so cool looking at all the pictures and seeing the horses who made history. There was even a son of the great Secretariat, Time Alert, there meeting visitors.

Now I need to find more fun things to do! Check back on my blog soon and I'll let you know where I'm headed next. It's time for another Willie Win summer adventure!

See you soon!

Hi guys!

I’m super excited that the warm weather is finally here. That means I get to go on more adventures!
A week and a half ago, I got to visit the Daily Bread Food Bank. Last year, Daily Bread distributed almost nine million pounds of food to those in need all across the Greater Toronto Area. They help make sure that everyone’s tummies are full all year round.

Next weekend, I’ll be visiting Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto. May 23 and 24 the track is hosting Doors Open Toronto from 10:00am to 5:00pm. There will be guided bus tours of Woodbine’s private stable area, the opportunity to see where more than 2000 horses live and train, walk through Woodbine’s starting gate and more! Woodbine’s jockeys and drivers will be on hand to meet visitors and sign autographs. Live racing kicks off at 1:00pm and I’ll be there trying to outrun the Thoroughbreds! Your parents can find more information here

Make sure you come visit me and bring your camera. See you there!
