Press Release

Quarter Horse Racing Industry

December 5, 2022, As you all know, a racing committee composed of several members of the QROOI have been discussing the industry here in Ontario with the goal of ensuring that our industry is positioned to attract and retain investment in Quarter Horse racing for years to come.

We all agree that our stakes program is not attracting enough entries for a variety of reasons. After extensive discussion and several meetings, the group would like to present a new proposed version of our stakes program alongside our 2022 Stakes program to our membership for your input. Click here to download the excel sheet.

No decisions have been made at this time; the new program is only an example of what a Stakes program MAY look like with the removal of the Ontario Bred series of stakes. It is now up to you to provide the committee with your thoughts on both programs; what do you like? What do you dislike? If interested, we encourage you to attend our next meeting scheduled for Saturday, December 17, at 11 am. (Please RSVP with Monique @ the QROOI office to ensure that we have adequate space)

We ask that you provide us with your input or intention to attend the meeting no later than December 12, 2022.
