Ontario's Mare Purchase Program Receives Funding Boost

|

Ontario Racing's Thoroughbred Improvement Program Committee has approved an additional $200,000 for its Mare Purchase Program, bringing the total to $700,000 after an enthusiastic response from breeders.

“The main focus of this program is to give Ontario horse people the opportunity to buy a better mare, and higher quality stock,” said David Anderson, Breeder Representative on the Board of Ontario Racing and member of the TIP Committee. “There are people who still want to buy horses, and this will help them.”

The program applies to the Keeneland January Sale, as well as the OBS Winter Mixed, and the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Winter Mixed Sale. Ontario residents who purchase an in-foal broodmare are eligible for a rebate of 50 per cent of the purchase price to a maximum of $25,000 CAD. In-foal mares must be purchased for a minimum purchase price of $10,000 USD, with no maximum.
