HBPA-CTHS MARE PURCHASE PROGRAM ONTARIO WRAPS UP

The Fasig Tipton Winter Mixed sale in Lexington wrapped up on Tuesday with gains in average.

There were some Ontario and other Canadian horsepeople attending the sale and some made purchases that qualified for the new Ontario Mare Purchase Program, inaugurated this year by the Ontario Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association and the CTHS.

John Brnjas’ COLEBROOK FARMS purchased four mares for $89,000 including a Sharp Humor mare in foal to Congrats and a Harlan’s Holiday mare in foal to Commissioner (A.P. Indy).

Adena Springs purchased several mares and Dermot Carty, president of sales for Adena, said several would be coming north.

This was the last of four sales in the MPP in its first year. The groups will analyze the results of the program to determine how popular it was. A crude count of mares that were bought and brought to Ontario (some did not meet criteria for the program if people were able to buy them for less than $5,000) checks in at about 40 pregnant

mares. A crude estimate on the number of mares who qualified for the program would be abut 75%.

SIR DUDLEY DIGGES REMAINS BARBADOS GOLD CUP ELIGIBLE

Gold Cup taking shape

from Barbados Today – KENT LAYNE
The second subscription stage for the March 4, 2017 Sandy Lane Gold Cup closed at the Barbados Turf Club’s offices last Friday.

The list of 17 is headed by Sir Dudley Digges owned by Kenneth and Sarah Ramsey of the USA. Sir Dudley Digges had won the one million dollar Queen’s Plate for three-year-olds at Woodbine Race Track in Canada last year and if he comes will be the first horse ever to win a million dollar event to race in Barbados. Sir Dudley Digges also heads the list as the highest rated horse and was given a Gold Cup rating of 140 by the Gold Cup rating committee.

Ramsey, who has won two of the last three editions of the Sandy Lane Gold Cup, finished second last year with Watchyourownbobber. The leading owner at more than five USA tracks in 2016 also has Coal Port, High Noon Rider and Key Stone For Victory entered at the second stage.

Trinidad and Tobago which placed second with Nominee in the 2014 running of the richest race in the Caribbean ($200 000 prize money) has entered Conquest Bespoke, owned by Shivam Maharaj. Conquest Bespoke who was imported from Woodbine, has won once from five starts breaking his maiden with Barbadian jockey Patrick Husbands on the turf in Canada.

Conquest Bespoke was given a Gold Cup rating of 108. The gelding by the stallion Speightstown had ran second in the Trinidad Gold Cup on Boxing Day 2016 on the sand surface.

Trinidad’s other entry is the five-year-old colt Trini Navigator owned by Baskaran Bassawh. Trini Navigator was given a Gold Cup rating of 90 by the handicap rating committee.

ONTARIO RACING WEBINAR ON FRIDAY

Letter of Intent to be released

From ONTARIO RACING – As part of Ontario Racing’s long term funding industry consultations, we heard from industry participants that increased transparency and information disclosure was important and needed.

In response to industry requests, Ontario Racing has worked with our partners at Ontario Lottery and Gaming (OLG) and the provincial government to release the nonbinding legal document which underpins the proposed long term funding agreement for horseracing in Ontario.

This Letter of Intent (LOI) will be released publicly on Friday February 10 2017, and an overview of this document will be provided via a webinar at 2pm. Ontario Racing will facilitate this conversation, and legal counsel from OLG and the Woodbine Entertainment Group (WEG) will on hand to provide a detailed explanation of this agreement to interested industry participants.
Please send your questions, comments and feedback to: gabriellegallant@ontarioracing.com
