Harness racing’s roots in PEI soil run deep. It is believed that Summerside Raceway (now RED SHORES at Summerside Raceway) is the oldest race track in Canada, dating back to July 1st, 1886.
The action in Charlottetown wasn’t far behind, with the Charlottetown Driving Park (CDP) opening its doors on October 2nd, 1888. RED SHORES is truly proud of the longstanding tradition of harness racing in Prince Edward Island and strives to produce a unique and entertaining experience to its spectators.
Whether it’s the thrill of live harness racing or daily simulcast action from our state-of-the-art simulcast theatres, the fun of over 200 slot machines or live Texas Hold ‘Em Poker tables and newly added Blackjack Tables, you’ll find it right here in Charlottetown.
Gather with friends and family for casual food and drinks at Turf’s Bar & Grill or relax under an umbrella and enjoy the best trackside seat in the house at the Trackside Patio (seasonal). Experience casual contemporary dining at the all-you-care-to-eat lunch or dinner buffets in the Top of the Park Dining Room.
