Fee Notes:

As a courtesy, the OSS Administration will make every effort to advise nominators of future sustaining payments but it is the responsibility of the owner of the eligible colt, filly or gelding to ensure that future sustaining payments are made whether or not a notice has been received. Failure to make a payment when due constitutes automatic withdrawal from racing in the stakes events of that year.
It is recommended that payments be sent by registered mail.

Nomination and sustaining payments can be paid to the Ontario Sires Stakes directly or by Interac (debit) or credit card through SC Stakes Online by clicking here.

Conditions:

Ontario Racing (OR), as Program Administrator, reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to make any adjustments, changes or cancellations as deemed required. By participating in the OSS Program, the participants acknowledge and agree that the OR will not be held liable for any costs associated with any changes to the OSS Program.

Eligibility:
Yearlings conceived as the result of a mating between a mare in the Northern Hemisphere and a stallion that stood the entire Northern Hemisphere breeding season in Ontario, providing that the stallion was duly registered with the Ontario Sires Stakes Program for the appropriate breeding season, can be nominated to the Ontario Sires Stakes if they meet the following requirements.

a) The nominated yearling must be registered with Standardbred Canada or the United States Trotting Association at the time of nomination. Any foal registered with the USTA that does not meet the registry requirements set out by Standardbred Canada shall not be eligible to be nominated to the OSS. Yearlings registered off the continent of North America may be accepted on an individual basis provided a copy of the home country registration certificate accompanies the nomination fee.

b) The OSS will not recognize foals as twins if produced through embryo/ovum transfer. If such foals were produced through embryo/ovum transfer, only the donor mare’s first born foal, registered with either Standardbred Canada or the USTA, will be eligible for nomination.

c) Foals conceived from frozen semen will be eligible to the OSS program only if the semen was collected and frozen in Ontario and is from a stallion that was registered for the OSS program both at the time of collection and when the mare was inseminated. The semen must have been obtained through the OSS registered owner, lessee or Syndicate.

Starting Fee:
The starting fee is due in accordance with Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) rules in effect at race time, but in any event, it must be paid before the horse starts.
