"With all sports, some folks will always dispute the call of the official but if you can get the information out there and have an explanation then at least it's a starting point."

Those words come from Brent Stone, Manager of Racing for the Ontario Racing Commission, on the two new pilot projects announced on Thursday by the ORC.

The two initiatives, designed to communicate in a clear, concise and accessible way, include the ORC and Standardbred Canada in an online collaboration featuring regular contributions from ORC Judges in an exclusive website feature. The second involves Woodbine Entertainment and the ORC collaborating to feature Judges & Stewards Announcements.

"We hope that in an effort to get our facts out there, people have a better understanding of what decision was made and how the decision was made," said Stone.
