The Ontario Horse Racing Industry Association has issued a congratulatory message to Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, whose Ontario Liberal Party was voted to a majority government Thursday night in Ontario's 2014 Provincial Election.

“We’ve worked closely with Premier Wynne over the last year and a half and will continue to work with her and her government to successfully integrate horse racing into the province’s gaming strategy and to ensure the industry and government can have a meaningful partnership going forward,” Sue Leslie, the president and chair of OHRIA, said in the release.

Ontario Horse Racing Industry Association Congratulates Kathleen Wynne On Election

The Ontario Horse Racing Industry Association (OHRIA) is congratulating Premier Kathleen Wynne on her election last night.

“We’ve worked closely with Premier Wynne over the last year and a half and will continue to work with her and her government to successfully integrate horse racing into the province’s gaming strategy and to ensure the industry and government can have a meaningful partnership going forward,” said Sue Leslie, President and Chair of OHRIA.

Central to Kathleen Wynne’s plans to reduce the deficit, growing revenue will prove important, and the horse racing and breeding sector are proven partners for the government in this regard.

“The horse racing and breeding sector have and will continue to work with all MPPs from all parties to ensure a bright future for our sector and that horse racing and breeding are contributing positively to both the government’s revenues and the province’s economy,” Leslie added.
