In yet another body blow to owners of racehorses, the Canadian Provincial Govt of Ontario has suspended horse racing in that province.

Which means the thousands of horses in work at Woodbine cannot race.

It comes as a knee-jerk reaction to the second wave of COVID-19 positives in the greater Toronto area of Ontario.

This despite the fact there has been no backstretch cases during the already shortened racing season at Woodbine.

But…despite the growing animosity connections of racehorses feel in Canada towards the Govt, two days ago from the HBPA which is the peek governing body that looks over the interests of the Ontario racing folk, came the ‘request’ to keep your horse in work.

This is because they are mounting a case, a plausible case based on the amount of people out of work, the already proven successful protocols in place, etc, to put in front of the Provincial Govt on Ontario to keep racing going.

It’s now entering its third day with no movement from the Govt. Submissions have been received though.

Effectively, actually, what that means is this. In Ontario racehorse owners are still paying on average $72 a day to keep their horses in work, plus vet fees which are outrageous in Canada, in the hope, the vain hope that maybe one day they can compete for prizemoney again.

The equation as it stands is ZERO ROI investment and payments for the racehorse owners making racing in Ontario 100% a waste of time.

It’s not viable.
