The Guardian Gold Cup & Saucer

Experience one of the greatest shows in Harness Racing

An Island Tradition for over 60 Years!

Each August, Red Shores at Charlottetown Driving Park is the home of one of the major entertainment attractions in Canada – the Guardian Gold Cup & Saucer. The fastest horses and the best drivers in all of Eastern Canada converge at the RED SHORES for 15 racing programs in 9 days. The Gold Cup & Saucer dates back to the early 1960’s and has become known as one of the most prestigious races in harness racing.

Join us this year on beautiful Prince Edward Island as we will celebrate the 61st running of The Guardian Gold Cup & Saucer. Be sure to check out all of our live race dates and world-wide broadcast dates by visiting the racing link or live broadcast link on the main page. The planning committee is currently working on grand prize promotions surrounding the cup, special memory lane segments, limited-edition merchandise and more!

Make plans to be here and watch history be made as the horses and their drivers walk past the spectators as the Island hymn is played to a packed house. The lights go out and the horses and their drivers are introduced to the thousands of fans one by one under the spotlight as they make their way in front of the grandstand. At two minutes to midnight, the famous call to the post is heard and the horses and drivers get ready to compete in one of the best shows in racing: The Guardian Gold Cup & Saucer!
