The Battle Of Waterloo final (for ON-sired two-year-old pacing colts) will be contested for an estimated $180,000. The Battle Of The Belles (for ON-sired two-year-old pacing fillies) will be contested for an estimated $120,000.

In 2014, both races returned to a three-payment eligibility system, beginning with the February nominations. The first sustaining payment must be postmarked no later than March 17.

While both races (including the eliminations, consolations and finals) will be contested at Grand River Raceway, the Woodbine Entertainment Group (WEG) will handle the stakes administration. As noted on the nomination forms, all payments must be made payable to, and sent to, WEG.

Go to the STAKING section of the Industry Day site to view the list of nominees for both races.
