In preparation for the launch of iAGCO online services for horse racing licensees in March, the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) has:
- Revised the Rules of Thoroughbred Racing and the Rules of Standardbred Racing to reduce regulatory burden and harmonize processes between breeds where possible. The rule revisions take effect on March 2, 2020 and reflect a number of process changes that will be implemented once iAGCO online services launch for horse racing licensees.
- Revised the fee schedule for all breeds. While the majority of fees will stay the same, a select few will be amended to reflect a number of process changes that will be implemented once the AGCO launches iAGCO online services for horse racing licensees. Fee changes will take effect on March 2, 2020. In alignment with fee schedule revisions, the AGCO is also introducing multi-breed licensing in select licence categories, which will allow applicants to apply for one licence valid across multiple breeds.
