The Voice of Harness Racing for 140 Years...
The Canadian Sportsman was founded in 1870 and is Canada's oldest
magazine of any kind. Published mid-monthly with Summer Stakes Bonus
Issues, The Sportsman is a trade magazine for passionate
harness racing participants and fans looking for unique
and in-depth information. What was once more of a newspaper has become
a 9.5x13" over-sized, full colour, features magazine dominated
by superior photography and design. Since 1989, The Canadian
Sportsman has been located in the small southwestern
Ontario hamlet of Straffordville. Each edition is produced and
printed from this location.
