JULY 7  Make sure you’re appropriately shoed and shorn, then head off to the races for the running of the 154th Queen’s Plate. The first of three gems in Canada’s Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing, the one-and-a-quarter-mile contest features the nation’s fastest and most agile three-year-old horses competing for a million-dollar purse. Colts including Pyrite Mountain and Up With the Birds are among the favourites. Cheer them on as they enter the home stretch of this regal race! Woodbine Racetrack, $12.50 to $51; call 416-675-7223 or visit here for more information and to purchase tickets.  —Laura Sabatini
