This consultation is directed at racetracks, owners, drivers and jockeys, trainers, grooms, veterinarians, agents, breeders, teletheatre locations and any other individual or entity that requires a horse racing licence from the AGCO. It is also directed to equine welfare organizations, horseplayers, industry associations, as well as businesses and government bodies whose mandate relates to Ontario’s horse racing industry.
