CityTV’s Breakfast Television (BT) Toronto reported live-on-location from Tomiko Training Centre on Wednesday morning to explore fractional racehorse ownership with TheStable.ca and Ontario Racing.

BT Live Eye host Nicole Servinis presented four segments from the Puslinch, Ont. training centre (base operations for TheStable.ca) during the national broadcast.

The spots included conversations with Ontario Racing’s John Siscos about the importance of horse racing in the province’s rural economy; Lunch n Learn facilitator Elissa Blowe spoke about the program’s mandate to educate groups about racehorse ownership; TheStable.ca President Anthony MacDonald discussed the evolution of his business to become the largest harness racing stable in Canada; TheStable.ca client James Traynor explained the benefits of owning small fractions of Standardbred racehorses.

Servinis made her on-track debut in a double-seated jog cart accompanied by MacDonald as the pair drove two-year-old trotter Rooney Blue Chip.
