Despite the adverse circumstances surrounding the unusual scenario and the curtailed live racing season, Woodbine Mohawk Park had a successful 2021 season. Woodbine Entertainment released its 2021 financial report for the track on January 11, 2022, revealing that the track had an all-source handle of CA$324 million, the most of any other Standardbred facility in North America previous year.


The virus struck again in 2021 as a result of the extraordinary crisis and lockdowns enforced by the Canadian federal government. The Standardbred season at the track was supposed to include 223 racing days, but only 157 were held. The 178 contested race cards in the similarly shorter 2020 live season are down by 21.
