The Ontario Sires Stakes program was established in 1974, and is a leading stakes racing program in North America. The objective of the program is to promote breeding of Standardbred horses in Ontario and to provide economic incentives to breeders to improve the quality of the Ontario Sired horse.

The Ontario Sires Stakes program consists of a series of races for two and three-year-old trotters and pacers, held at tracks across Ontario from May to November of each year.

The Program consists of two tiers of racing, a Grassroots Series and a Gold Series. In the Grassroots Series there are five legs, a Grassroots Semi-Final and Grassroots Championship race for each category of age, sex and gait. The Gold Series consists of five legs, followed by a Super Final at the end of the season for each category of age, sex and gait.
