Mohawk Racetrack is a great harness racing track in Campellville, Ontario, which is just 30km’s west of Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto.
This year the track is open from May 22nd to October 13th on Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings with races beginning at 7:25pm. Tuesday night races also kick off on June 3rd, so the Mohawk Racetrack is the place to be 5 nights of the week. You can check out the full racing schedule here.

How To Bet Online
Here is a quick step-by-step guide to explain how you can bet on the races taking place at the Mohawk Racetrack online. I’m going to be using Sports Interaction for this example, because I personally like their racebooks layout, but BetOnline also takes bets on races taking place at Mohawk Racetrack.
1. Open an Account with Sports Interaction
This is a pretty self explanatory step and many of you will already have Sports Interaction accounts so I will keep this section brief. In order to place bets throughout Sports Interaction you will obviously need to have an account. Click here to visit Sports Interaction and register for an account. It’s quick, easy and painless.
2. Go to the Sports Interaction Racebook
The horse race betting has it’s own section at Sports Interaction. This means you will not find the Mohawk Racetrack races in the ‘Sports’ section of the site. Click on ‘Horses’ in the top navigation bar to open the Sports Interaction Racebook.
3. Choose the Mohawk Track
Now that you’re on the Racebook page you will need to select the Mohawk Racetrack. In the left sidebar Mohawk will be under “Harness”. You will also notice in the screenshot that I have Mohawk under my favourites. You can set up your favourite tracks by clicking on ‘Racebook Options’ just above the Favourite tracks in the left sidebar.
4. Choose Your Race and Place Your Bets
Now that you have the Mohawk Racetrack races for the night up on your screen you can go through and select which races you want to bet on. You can see the different bets avaiable to make as well (straight, exacta, trifecta, daily double and pick 3). In the screenshot below I’m looking at the 6th race of the night and have a $20 bet on Hit It Big to win the race at 8/1.
Using Your Mobile Device
Sports Interaction and BetOnline both have great mobile platforms for betting on races. This would allow you to place bets from anywhere you can watch the race or even live from the Mohawk Racetrack. Simply visit the Sports Interaction website on your mobile device and the mobile platform will be used. Find the racebook, click on Mohawk and choose your horse. It’s really that simple. Mobile betting will be the way almost all horse race betting is done in the near future.
