2019 Stakes Race Press Release

The Quarter Racing Owners of Ontario Inc. Board of Directors at their meeting on September 15, 2018 voted to bring back the Ontario Bred series of Stakes races for the 2019 racing season. After the American Quarter Horse Association removed the regional qualifier races for the Bank of American racing challenge in 2018 the QROOI board saw an opportunity to put back a program that supports breeding of Ontario mares without any requirements on the location of the stallions. The 2019 Stakes program will have a total of 10 stakes, 3 Ontario Bred, 3 Ontario Sired, 3 Open Stakes along with the Alex Picov Championship race.


If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact the QROOI at 905-426-7050 or qrooiheadoffice@gmail.com.
