British Columbia – CAN (BC)
Saturday, August 4, 2018 — 2:00 PM EST | Race ID: 2119741
The Royal St. John’s Regatta
Maiden Allowance – Purse $50,600
Restricted to 2 Year Olds
6.5 Furlongs on Turf

This race for two year olds is a tribute to The Royal St. John’s Regatta. The race will cover six and a half furlongs on Turf and will take place on the other coast of Canada in British Columbia as unfortunately there is not a track suitable for the race in Newfoundland. The winner of the race will take home his share of the $50.600 and will also be awarded an unraced two year old named for the race.

The Royal St. John’s Regatta is the oldest recorded organized sporting event in North America. This year on August 1st the event celebrated the 200th anniversary. Held on Quidi Vidi Lake in St. John’s, Newfoundland, the Regatta is scheduled for the first Wednesday of August each year.

The Regatta is a series of Rowing Races. Crews row six-member, coxswained, fixed-seat racing shells that are as identical as possible. Men’s crews row a 2.450 km course, women’s crews row a 1.225 km course, and all crews are required to turn buoys and return to the start-finish line.

A growing number of people, local and foreign, visit the lake each year for the event, averaging around 50,000 in recent years. Aside from the rowing competitions, the Royal St. John’s Regatta is well known for its lakeside entertainment. The Regatta hosts hundreds of booths operated by individuals and organizations, ranging from various games of chance to food and drink.

Here is our field of ten for this SPIN “around the pond”.
