After making her heartfelt plea to save Ontario’s horse racing industry last week, Canadian-born jockey Chantal Sutherland will continue her Lady Godiva-esque quest to bring attention to Ontario government’s decision to end its partnership with horse racing to a different audience.
On Tuesday night, Sutherland will be appearing on Conan O’Brien’s late night TV show (TBS, 11pm ET). According to sources, Sutherland will be mentioning the situation facing Ontario’s racing industry during her interview segment.
Signs Pointing Out Job Losses Available From Mardon
Before appearing on Conan, Sutherland will be making a rare appearance back at Woodbine Racetrack on Sunday to ride her brother Hugh Jr.’s horse Awesome Fire in the $250,000 Wonder Where Stake. Should she win, expect signs in the winner’s circle like the ones pictured below. The people behind those signs: standardbred owner Marv Chantler – who races under Mardon Stables – and Sutherland’s father Hugh.
These signs are being made available on a first come first serve basis. Both Chantler and Sutherland told Trot Insider that signs are up in the Caledon area now and they have had numerous requests for these signs, available as both two-sided lawn-stake type signs or one-sided wall-mounted signs with grommets.
Signs are available for pickup at Mardon Stables; RR#2, 2996 Conc 7; Loretto, ON L0G 1L0 or Sutherland’s farm in Caledon.
