2018 Queen’s Plate
As Canada’s oldest thoroughbred horse race, the Queen’s Plate has become the talk of the town and has gained a shining reputation for food, fashion and entertainment. This year was no different, with fascinators, bow ties and extravagant hats on full display at the 159th running of the Queen’s Plate.
The most stylish event of the season saw many of the city’s most influential individuals attend, including Cindy Sampson, Mike Holmes, Mike Holmes Jr., Sherry Holmes and Tamsen McDonough. Wonder Gadot, under jockey John Velazquez, broke the odds, coming in first place, while the card for this year handled C$14,625,756, obliterating the previous record obtained in 2017.
