The Western Canadian Derby series has been revised following the announcement that the Manitoba Derby will not be part of the series this year due to a federal quarantine of the Winnipeg track.

The removal of the Manitoba Derby will now see the series reduced to the GIII Canadian Derby at Century Mile and the B.C. Derby at Hastings Racecourse. The previous $100,000 three-leg sweep opportunity has been discontinued, but the $25,000 Owner/Trainer Point System Bonus will remain in place.

“Though we are understandably disappointed by the unfortunate absence of the Manitoba Derby and how it has affected our series, all parties agreed that it was important to still recognize and reward the valued owners and trainers who will compete in the remaining two races with the participation and results-based bonus system that was initially offered,” said Allen Goodsell, Racing Manager, Century Casinos.
