OHRIA Response To Ontario Horse Racing Transitional Panel

Published: August 16, 2013 11:26 am EDT

The Ontario Horse Racing Industry Association (OHRIA) has responded to the proposals put forward by the Transition Panel’s Plan for Horse Racing in Ontario with what they consider "a more workable approach to moving the Industry forward."

"The crisis in our industry is urgent, deep, and requires rapid decision-making to stabilize losses of jobs and investment," states the report. "It should be noted that there is broad consensus within the industry that the most expedient, simple and profitable solution (for both the horse racing industry and the Government of Ontario), would be to establish expanded gaming at existing racetrack sites, with transparency, accountability and performance benchmarks established for revenue sharing between the horse racing and breeding industry and the OLG."
