The many grassroots efforts to save Ontario's horse racing industry continue. Currently there is an online petition, which has grown to 1,200 signatures just hours after first being posted.

The provincial government is planning to review the Slots at Racetracks partnership between racetracks and the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation.

Today, Ontario represents the heart of Canadian horse racing.

  • 60,000 Ontarians are employed by the province’s racing industry.
  • Horse racing produces 1.5 billion dollars of wages and salaries each year in Ontario.
  • The horse racing industry is the second largest sub-sector of Ontario’s agricultural economy with an economic contribution in excess of wheat, eggs, poultry and hogs in 2010.
