OLG proudly supports Ontario’s horse racing industry, which celebrates 250 years of racing in the province this year. This milestone reflects the important contribution the industry makes to the economic development of rural communities and the thousands of jobs it supports.
OLG is helping to build a more sustainable future for horse racing by distributing approximately $93 million in funding on behalf of the Government of Ontario to support close to 950 race dates this year.
Horse racing is an important part of our heritage. Every day, heart pounding action and thrills at every turn are demonstrated at the 15 race tracks located across the province. With three breeds of horses and racing all year round, excitement is always close.
