This is, by no means, a simple task or one to be taken lightly. Patchwork “fixes” are not an option when an entire industry’s future is at stake. A real solution to a problem this complex, unfortunately, takes more than a few months to achieve. In order to provide the time to affect a strategic, long term plan, the government of Ontario, as you know, has provided $500,000,000 over 5 years to help stabilize the industry in the interim.http://www.cthsont.com/an-update-to-the-ontario-horse-racing-industry.htmlMon, 27 Apr 2015 11:14:00 GMT2015-04-27T11:14:00An Update to the Ontario Horse Racing IndustryWoodbine Entertainment Group (WEG) today unveiled the totally new HPIbet.com website.http://www.cthsont.com/weg-launches-completely-redesigned-hpibet-website.htmlThu, 16 Apr 2015 13:34:00 GMT2015-04-16T13:34:00WEG launches completely redesigned HPIbet websiteThe 2015 live Thoroughbred racing season kicks off this weekend at Woodbine, the first two of 133 programs scheduled for the year.http://www.cthsont.com/woodbine-racetrack’s-thoroughbred-season-begins-saturday.htmlFri, 10 Apr 2015 09:42:00 GMT2015-04-10T09:42:00Woodbine Racetrack’s Thoroughbred season begins SaturdayThe Jockey Club of Canada held its 40th Annual Sovereign Awards event this evening on the elegantly transformed third floor of Woodbine Race Track in Toronto, Ontario Canada.http://www.cthsont.com/lexie-lou-honoured-as-horse-of-the-year-at-40th-sovereign-awards.htmlFri, 10 Apr 2015 09:14:00 GMT2015-04-10T09:14:00Lexie Lou honoured as Horse of the Year at 40th Sovereign AwardsThe Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame is pleased to announce its 2015 inductees.
