Transparency & Consultation

As part of our ongoing commitment to openness and transparency, Ontario Racing will endeavor to share industry information and consult with industry participants in the most comprehensive way.


* Enriched TIP will now offer the additional funds through a new rewards program in which a $2,500 bonus will be distributed to the winning owner and breeder of a registered Ontario-bred in an "overnight" race at Woodbine split evenly. At Fort Erie, $1,250 will be also split evenly between the winning owner and breeder of an overnight race.
* When coupled with the existing TIP program, there is over $16 million available for Thoroughbred horsepeople through TIP in 2019, including $2 million from the original Enhanced TIP program earmarked for Thoroughbred breeders.
* Another $125,000 from the enriched TIP program has been dedicated to equine research and long-term care.
* The additional TIP funds are a contribution from the government and are not derived from wagering, as is the case with the Thoroughbred Improvement Program, which is expected to be valued over $12 million in 2019.
* The TIP Program is retroactive to the commencement of Thoroughbred racing in April 2019.
