Ask any racehorse owner what the greatest feeling in the world is, and whether they are a first-time horse owner with a small share of a horse, or a veteran owner with a large stable of stakes horses, the response will be the same, “seeing your horse cross the finish line first!”

If you’ve dreamed of owning a racehorse, but have never taken the leap into ownership, here’s the contest for you.

Standardbred Canada and the Ontario Sires Stakes are partnering and pleased to announce that the Ontario Sires Stakes (OSS) will sponsor the ‘Win a Share in a Racehorse’ contest for the third consecutive year. The contest winner will receive a share in the LandMark 13 Stable ownership group. The share is valued at $2,000 and will include at least one Ontario-sired yearling.

“This is a great opportunity for a racing fan to learn about horse ownership with no risk,” said Karen Allen, Promotions and Industry Development Coordinator for Ontario Racing. “They can have the full experience including purchasing the horses at the yearling sales, watching their horses be broken and trained down, qualifying, racing, and hopefully making it into the winner’s circle.”

The contest is available to Ontario residents who have never owned a Standardbred before and complete a ballot at any racetrack hosting an Ontario Sires Stake event between August 15 and September 12. For those who are not able to attend an OSS event during any of those dates, an online ballot will be available on starting September 1, and closing on September 12.

During the week of September 16, ten entrants will be drawn as contest finalists to participate in an on-track showdown to determine the ‘Win a Share’ champion on October 5 during the OSS Grassroots Championship night at Woodbine Mohawk Park.

One OSS Grassroots Championship race will be selected and the 10 finalists will each be paired with one of the starters. The finalist paired with the winning horse will win the “Win A Share” contest and the share in Landmark 13 Stable, just in time to go horse shopping at the 2019 edition of the London Selected Yearling Sale on October 19 and 20.

What is LandMark?

LandMark is a fractional ownership stable that provides an opportunity for people to own multiple standardbred race horses for a modest investment of $2,000 per share. LandMark 13 will purchase a percentage of several yearlings at this year’s sales and the yearlings will be trained by Ontario based trainers, Mark and Shawn Steacy. Shareholders will receive no bills for the first 12 months.
