The Yorkton Exhibition was making full use of the Cornerstone Raceway Canada Day weekend hosting races on Friday and on Canada Day Sunday over the weekend. Both days featured hot and sunny conditions that gave horse racing fans a chance to enjoy the weather and the racing action at the Exhibition grounds.
Sunday’s Canada Day festivities featured an early four p.m. start time and gave spectators a chance to enjoy an evening at the Exhibition grounds to celebrate the weekend.
