    Woodbine recently announced a masterplan to transform its 684 acre site into a broader entertainment experience. […] The organization needed to revitalize its brand identity to reflect this transformation. The core issue that needed to be resolved in the rebrand was to respect the heritage of horse racing which is the essence of Woodbine and its reason-for-being, and balance this with the need reflect a broader and more diverse entertainment offering. The identity also needed to appeal to a more diverse audience – women, families and millennials. The visual solution involved abandoning the literal use of the “horse” in the logo. Instead, the identity utilizes the abstraction of the “track” as a symbol of racing, along with “star” that is both a symbol of “entertainment” as well as alluding to the graphic heritage of horse racing “silks” – the colour jerseys jockeys wear to identify horse ownership. The resulting icon provided the flexibility to be used for a variety of future Woodbine venues, as well as creating a visual form that allows for dynamic graphic expression. — Concrete
