Stakes payments can now be paid on the SC website using the new Online Stake Payment Program (log in and click on 'eshop' at the top of the SC home page). The SC online staking service also allows you to make payments for events such as Ontario Sires Stakes (OSS), Woodbine Entertainment Group (WEG) stakes, and any stakes that SC currently administers, including stakes programs in Alberta and the Maritimes.

Please note that payments for WEG stakes must be submitted by SC to WEG on the stakes' due date, therefore these stakes online stakes payments must be made one day before the payment due date. Please check the due date carefully.

The Lou Babic Pace nomination fee, which is also due May 15, is an additional $25 for the open division and $15 for the filly division.

Without the certificate, the interstate semen transport nomination fee is $275.
