Red Shores Racetrack and Casino

Red Shores Racetrack and Casino Review

Since 1880 this track at the eastern end of the city has been the home of a sport dear to islanders—harness racing. (No, they don't race harnesses. They race horses harnessed to tippy, two-wheeled carriages called sulkies). An onsite theater simulcasts racing from other tracks, while slot machines and Texas Hold'em provide further gambling options. If you'd rather save your dollars for dinner, there is excellent dining at the Top of the Park Dining Room ($$–$$$) too. In August, during Old Home Week (902/629–6623,, Eastern Canada's best harness horses converge here for 10 days of races. Old Home Week also brings the provincial agricultural exhibition and a family-friendly midway to Red Shores.
