7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Image of Ride of a Lifetime book cover.Oshawa native and Hall of Fame Jockey, Sandy Hawley, will be here to discuss his career highlights as a thoroughbred jockey and his fascinating life. The Sandy Hawley story is not all about glory, celebrity and wins. He overcame personal, financial and health battles, ultimately beating cancer.

Riding for a thirty-year period, he won almost 6,500 races! He is one of the few men honoured by his colleagues in two countries for personifying the highest standards of his profession, with awards in both Canada and the US. He also won the Eclipse Award – the equivalent of a film Oscar – as North America’s top jockey, and was twice named the winner of the Lou Marsh Award as Canada’s top athlete.  Previous to Sandy no jockey had ever been a recipient.  He has also received the Order of Canada.

Canada’s premier horse race, the Queen's Plate will be run June 28 and 29, 2019 at Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto. Sandy has won a record-tying four Queen’s Plates. No bets; this event is guaranteed to be a winner!
