today announced the release of the 2020 Program criteria books for the Standardbred (SIP) and Thoroughbred Improvement Programs (TIP), and the Quarter Horse Racing Industry Development Program (QHRIDP).
The criteria books provide in-depth information and the rules surrounding the various Program components. The books, available online at ontarioracing.com/member-information/breeds
