Rideau Carleton Raceway Casino Celebrates 60th Anniversary The Barrhaven Independent
September 20, 2022 | Rideau Carleton Raceway is celebrating its 60th Anniversary during the month of September 2022.
While the Vimy Bridge connected Barrhaven and Rideau Carleton more than eight years ago, the racetrack and the community have a much deeper connection.
In the early 1960s, Mel Barr’s original plan for his 200-acre farm was to build a horse racing track. However, one year earlier, Rideau Carleton Raceway was built across the Rideau River to the east. Barr opted for Plan B, which was to build a housing development. A community was born, and Barrhaven was named after Barr.
Now, 60 years later, Rideau Carleton Raceway Casino has grown, though not nearly at the rate that Barrhaven has. The Vimy Bridge not only makes Rideau Carleton directly accessible to Barrhaven residents – they had to slingshot through Manotick before the bridge was built – but the facility employs many people from Barrhaven.Read the full article
Gold Winner P L Notsonice shatters records in Ottawa Ontario Sires Stakes - July 26, 2020
The temperature wasn't the only record set yesterday as the province’s best sired 3 year old trotting fillies descended on Rideau Carleton. P L Notsonice was not so nice with the record book; trotting in a blistering 1:52.4 to win the $71,000 Ontario Sires Stakes Gold Trot. That time was the fastest mile trotted for any horse on this oval erasing the great Majestic Son’s record established in the 2007 Frank Ryan. That mark also set a new Ontario Sires Stakes and Canadian record for 3 year old fillies racing on a 5/8 mile track. Driver Jonathan Drury blasted P L Notsonice to the front by the quarter, shrugged off an outside challenge by Susies Lady, then never looked back. An amazing feat which may stand for many years to come.
