Updates on the Re-Allocation of Purse Funds Program

April 29, 2020
Updates on the Re-Allocation of Purse Funds Program
Attention Horsepeople,
  • Cheques to cover April expenses are in the process of being issued. There is no need to apply for May cheques as we will be using information received for April. 
  • The cheques for the last week of March eligible Standardbred horses have been mailed and should be received shortly.
  • A copy of your trainer’s invoice as well as proof of payment for the month of April will no longer be required for submission.  We are requesting that trainers with owners in arrears on monthly expenses for the month of April alert Ontario Racing (syoung@ontarioracing.com) prior to May 15.
  • 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.  For the protection of participants, regulatory officials and track employees we are working with the AGCO on establishment of protocols as we move, albeit with no spectators, toward the opening of racing.

Thank you for your patience as we move through this process.
