On Monday, April 20, Ontario Racing (OR) communicated a few helpful updates to horsepeople in the provincial industry, given that the purse funds re-allocation program has been announced and that applications have begun to be received by OR.

Ontario Racing’s updates include the following:

  • Cheques will be issued on a monthly basis, with the first cheques scheduled to be mailed in early May to cover April expenses.

  • OR is in the process of issuing the cheques for the last week of March-eligible horses.

  • A copy of your trainer’s invoice as well as proof of payment for the month of April must be submitted in order to qualify for payment in May.

  • Last week, Woodbine Entertainment CEO Jim Lawson hosted a live ‘Q & A’ for horsepeople, and during the session he mentioned that he was hopeful that live racing could potentially return in June or July. You can now watch the replay of the entire Q & A session here.

  • OR will work to re-schedule OSS races to later in the year, depending on the date on which live racing resumes in the province.

Please Note: It is not anticipated that there will be any live racing in the province during the month of May.

Ontario Racing would like to thank horsepeople for their patience as OR moves through the application process.
