July 30, 2015 - At its meeting on Wednesday, July 30, the Board of the Ontario Racing Commission (ORC) approved a revised SB Rule on qualifying times, effective August 1, 2015.
A release from the ORC states that the change in qualifying times is a response to a shortage of horses which effects field size which then directly impacts the wagering handle. This shortage is being felt at the Grassroots level of racing.
Details of the new qualifying rule appear below.
