The North America Cup is a three-year-old pacers harness race run in mid June at the Mohawk Racetrack in Cambellville. It’s is the first high profile horse race on the Calendar in Canada and the only real major harness race in Canada. Continuing with the “special race” theme the North America Cup is also the richest horse race in Canada with a purse of $1.5 Million.

The Mohawk Racetrack is owned by Woodbine Entertainment and as such you can place bets on the race at the track, but if you aren’t able to make it out to Cambellville you can also place bets on the North America Cup at any of the betting sites listed below.
Where To Bet On The North America Cup
- Licensed and regulated in Canada
- Easy deposits & withdrawals including Interac
- Competitive betting lines
Both Bet365 and Sports Interaction take bets on all the races at Mohawk Raceway, but if you aren’t famililar with their websites it can be difficult to find where to bet on the races. I’ve wrote a quick how to for both of the sites below.
Bet365.com doesn’t have a traditional Racebook that is separate from the Sportsbook. Instead you should visit the Bet365.com sportsbook and click on ‘Horse Racing’ from the left sidebar menu. Next you will have to switch from UK & Irish to International races at the top of the page. You should then be able to find Mohawk Racetrack and place your bets on the North America Cup.
Sports Interaction has a more traditional Racebook that is separate from the other sports. After visiting SportsInteraction.com you should click on ‘Racebook’ in the top navigation bar. You will then find Mohawk Raceway under the Harness Racing tab in the left sidebar of the Racebook.
