Fees for the 2023 breeding year are:
- $200 for a New Registration (if not registered as an Ontario Sire in the previous year).
- $100 for a Renewal Registration (for stallions registered as an Ontario Sire in the previous year).
- Plus a levy equal to 50 per cent of the advertised service fee for the current year or $500, whichever is greater. If the service fee for the current year is listed as “Private,” the levy payable will be equal to 50 per cent of the highest amount that would be charged for a service fee for the current year or $500, whichever is greater.
A reminder that to be eligible for registration as an Ontario Sire a stallion must be: wholly owned by an Ontario resident, and standing his entire Northern Hemisphere stud season in the province of Ontario; or leased to an Ontario resident for a term of at least one year, and standing his entire Northern Hemisphere stud season in the province of Ontario during the term of that lease, with a copy of the written lease agreement on file with Standardbred Canada.
