The changing circumstance in Ontario horse racing has impacted the Ontario
Sires Stakes Program Administrator’s ability to issue nomination forms and
conditions to meet the nomination deadline of May 15th.
To provide sufficient time to plan, the Board of the Ontario Racing
Commission (ORC) authorized an extension to the May 15th deadline. The Program
Administrator will be meeting with the Standardbred Improvement Program Advisory
Group later this week to discuss the program for OSS#41 (racing in 2013 and
2014) and make a determination on the new nomination deadline.
By end of day on May 11th, 2012, the Program Administrator will issue a
communiqué regarding the outcome of these discussions.
In the meantime, the Program Administrator will continue to receive
nominations to OSS#41. In absence of a nomination form, the name of the yearling
should be itemized. In the normal fashion, cheques should be made payable to the
Ontario Sires Stakes and sent to the ORC. It is strongly recommended that
payments be sent by registered mail.
