The awesome racetrack will add to the reputation of Century and will bring more fruitful business for the casino.
Century Downs will host the WPCA World Chuckwagon Racing Finals in August next year. The casino will also benefit greatly from this effort. In the world of horse racing, this is a significant tournament and it will also help the progress and development of the casino side by side. The event will be hosted for 5-days and innumerable people will be drawn to the race track and the casino alike. Gambling will be one of the biggest attractions during the event. This is definitely a big draw and a very important and vital milestone for Century Mile Racetrack.
The event which will be hosted will probably be a multi-year agreement with Century Downs. It is expected that the range of the spectators will be around 10,000 – 15,000.

Century Downs has a great appeal, not only as a racetrack, but also as a casino. WPCA spokesperson is quite sure that the event will be a new kind and hopes it to be a great success.

The teaming up of a casino and racetrack is nothing new. Both of them will benefit from the venture. Reports were also out for partnership between Woodbine Racetrack and Great Canadian Gaming and through this, new slots were brought into the area. Many people were attracted to this combination and frequented the place bringing high business.
The partnership will not only be beneficial for the casino, but it will also draw people for the horse racing. The sport will see growth when more attention will come to the same. Fans of Chuckwagon Racing are earnestly looking for something like this and this would bring immense positive impact on the whole area. Partnership of a casino with that of a racetrack is an excellent idea. It will be a great area of interest for casino companies in the coming future.
