image-about-enAbout the Rideau Carleton Raceway Casino

Rideau Carleton Raceway, located in Ottawa, has been operating since 1962. And from even earlier beginnings, 1886, Horse Racing has been Canada’s oldest form of legal gaming. Today it has evolved and is flourishing in Ontario as an exciting crowd-pleasing sports spectacle.

Canadians and tourists gravitate in Ottawa to experience Canada’s Capital, the home of its democracy, site of architectural and historical significance and a wealth of cultural traditions and activities. As a result of this regional vitality and especially since slot machines were added to its completely renovated facility in 2000, millions of visitors have been attracted to Rideau Carleton Raceway, representing marvelous opportunities to promote the sport of Harness Horse Racing to a new clientele.

Rideau Carleton Raceway and the local racing industry are enjoying the business of hosting these additional attractions while displaying a more talented field of horses, reflected in increased purses and daily attendance. We have redefined ourselves as a state-of-the-art dual racing and gaming entertainment destination.
