Rideau Carleton Raceway
Year-round* live standardbred harness horse racing on Canada's fastest 5/8th mile track. Cheer trackside, or from our panoramic dining room, where you can indulge in our buffet while you enjoy the race. Teletheatre wagering too!
Rideau Carleton Raceway has operated since 1962 as a showcase for Live Horse Racing.
The Raceway facility was completely renovated in 2000, and millions of visitors have been introduced to the sport of Harness Horse Racing. With the addition of a state of the art Bingo Hall which supports 28 charities as a new draw, Horse Racing is attracting all new fans.
Our kitchen caters to our numerous venues; in the Dining Room, we serve three meals a day, 7 days a week, including a daily dinner buffet in our glass enclosed restaurant, right on the finish line so you can catch the excitement of the live horse races while you dine. One thing is certain, your dinner with us will be one of the most entertaining you've ever had, and tasty too!
