Quarter Horse Program



Welcome to the Quarter Horse Racing Industry Development Program

 

Industry Development Plan

In 2006 in partnership with the Ontario Quarter Horse racing community, the ORC developed a multi-year Strategic Plan to support development of a strong and sustainable Quarter Horse racing industry in Ontario. The Plan identified a number of goals and objectives to achieve measured, balanced growth for the sector and to improve the quantity and quality of Ontario-bred racing stock active in Quarter Horse racing in Ontario. The Plan forms the foundation upon which the annual program are developed and approved.

Breeding Program

Development of a strong local breeding sector is an essential element for a sustainable Quarter Horse racing industry in Ontario. The Program recognizes that breeding programs and the racing program at Ajax Downs should work hand-in-hand to achieve the goals identified in the Plan.

The Breeding Program is administered by the Ontario Racing Commission through the Quarter Horse Program Registry, which tracks people and horses eligible for Program awards and benefits.

  • To participate in the Breeding Program, people must enroll themselves – either as individuals, or on behalf of horse ownership partnerships, syndicates, or corporations, and hold a valid current ORC licence.
  • Once enrolled, owners (and breeders) can “record” their horses in the Program Registry, and verify their status for awards as Ontario Foaled, Ontario Bred and/or Ontario Sired.

Princess Stakes Breeding Incentive

Princess Stakes Breeding Incentive certificates may now be transferred to a different mare, where that mare is owned by the same ownership entity which currently owns the mare that originally earned the incentive.
The change will allow an owner of an eligible filly to transfer and use the incentive to produce an Ontario Bred out of another mare that they own.
It should be noted that the following conditions apply:

  • The Princess Breeding Certificate may only be transferred once during the breeding season.
  • Approval must be granted by the Program Administrator before breeding.
  • Only the current owner of the mare, which earned the certificate, may apply to have the certificate transferred to another mare in the same ownership group
  • The mare to which the certificate is being transferred must be enrolled in the Program Registry and achieve her accredited standing surrounding the 2015 foaling year in order to redeem the Princess Breeding Certificate.

The form for the 2014 breeding season may be downloaded here:
