How OLG supports horse racing

OLG’s Horse Racing division supports the industry by administering funding for purses and operational costs as set out in the Funding Agreement.

OLG also provides support that puts a focus on horse racing to grow the customer base and ensure the industry has a strong future in Ontario by:

  • Creating effective stakeholder relationships to support the needs of the horse racing industry
  • Contributing to the efficient and effective management of funding through performance measurements.
  • Sharing expertise to help the industry adopt its own Responsible Gambling program
  • Developing a strong brand and marketing strategy with the industry

ONTARIO HORSE RACING INDUSTRY PERFORMANCE RESULTS

OLG’s horse racing division is contributing to the efficient and effective management of funding through performance measurements. To support this objective, OLG established a working group in early 2016 called the Performance Management Excellence Group (PMEG).  The PMEG is led by OLG and includes representation from:

  • the Ontario Lottery & Gaming Corporation;
  • the Ministry of Finance;
  • the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs;
  • Ontario Racing; and
  • the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario.

The PMEG is proud to release quarterly fiscal industry performance results using well-established key performance indicators. This effort is part of a broader integrated performance management system that provides up-to-date facts and information related to the horse racing sector in Ontario.

FUNDING AGREEMENT FOR LIVE HORSE RACING

Beginning April 1, 2019, OLG will provide nearly two decades of stable funding to help build a sustainable industry in the province. It is a comprehensive package of support that was designed to reach all areas of the industry and reaffirms OLG’s commitment to invest in a sector of Ontario’s gaming marketplace that provides a great deal of value to the province.
