Helpful Updates on the Re-Allocation of Purse Funds Program
Attention Horsepeople,
Now that the Re-Allocation of Purse Funds Program has been announced and we have started to receive applications, here are a few helpful updates:
  • Cheques will be issued on a monthly basis with the first cheques scheduled to be mailed in early May to cover April expenses.
  • We are in the process of issuing the cheques for the last week of March eligible horses.
  • A copy of your trainer’s invoice as well as proof of payment for the month of April must be submitted in order to qualify for payment in May.
  • Last week, Woodbine Entertainment CEO Jim Lawson hosted a live Q & A for horsepeople and during the session he mentioned that he was hopeful that live racing could potentially return in June or July. You can watch the entire Q & A session here: https://woodbine.com/horsepeople/ (bottom of page).
  • We will work to re-schedule OSS races to later in the year depending on the date on which live racing resumes in the province.
Please note:  It is not anticipated that there will be any live racing in the province during the month of May.

Thank you for your patience as we move through the application process.
