Trot Insider has learned that Premier Kathleen Wynne will be at Grand River Raceway in Elora, Ont., on Friday, October 11 to release the long-awaited plan for Ontario’s horse racing industry.
The press conference, open to accredited media, will reportedly start at 10:00 a.m. on Friday morning.
Nearly one month ago, Premier Wynne issued a letter to the Horse Racing Industry Transition Panel — Elmer Buchanan, John Snobelen and John Wilkinson — asking for a five-year-plan for Ontario’s horse racing industry for release this month. That plan, which in the words of Wynne required “specific recommendations on how to best achieve the integration of gaming and horse racing in Ontario” was reportedly delivered to government last Friday.
Trot Insider will provide more information as this story develops.
