Woodbine | Michael Burns

Woodbine Entertainment has launched a new horse racing app as it prepares for live racing to return without spectators Saturday, June 6. Dark Horse was designed to benefit both first-time bettors and more experienced horse players and to provide users with betting insights and strategies. The first legal sports betting app in Canada, Dark Horse also allows users to stream the races right in the app for immediate action. Users can play for free or bet with real money.

“Dark Horse is the perfect horse racing betting app for any sports bettor who is looking for some action,” said Chris Lush, Senior Vice President, IT, Wagering and Distribution of Woodbine Entertainment. “The app was created with the sports bettor in mind and uses a simplified user experience and artificial intelligence to make it easy for new players to engage with the sport of horse racing.”

Dark Horse is now available in the Apple App Store and can be downloaded on other devices by visiting PlayDarkHorse.com. Dark Horse is being launched across Canada and is currently available in British Columbia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Quebec and Saskatchewan.
