Canadian Triple Crown

The Canadian Triple Crown was founded in 1959 and is open to horses 3 years old up who were foaled in Canada. It's similar to the American Triple Crown series in that all three races are run over the same distances but they are run on three different surfaces. "Triple Crown of Canadian Thoroughbred Racing" consists of:

Queen's Plate - held at Woodbine Racetrack in June;
Prince of Wales Stakes - held at Fort Erie Race Track in July;
Breeders' Stakes - held at Woodbine in August.
