Woodbine Entertainment Group fully supports the ORC (Ontario Racing Commission) and has taken steps to protect the integrity of our racing product. Trainers Anthony Montini, Jeff Gillis, Anthony Haughan, Kevin O’Reilly and Rick Zeron will not be allowed to participate at WEG until such time as their issues are resolved with the ORC. Further, horses that were trained by those individuals will not be allowed to enter to race at Woodbine for a minimum period of 30 days after which a review will be held. This same applies to horses transferred to other trainers. It is Woodbine Entertainment Group’s duty to protect the interests of our customers and racing participants.

The above statement was issued Tuesday by Woodbine Entertainment Group with respect to the Ontario Racing Commission’s recent notification of those trainers that have received a Class 1 positive test. (WEG)
