A group of more than 30 Standardbred horse breeders are seeking $65 million in damages from the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation according to a notice of action filed Monday at the Ontario Superior Court of Justice in Guelph.

The breeders are seeking damages for losses incurred when the lottery corporation cancelled the Slots at Racetracks Program "without prior notice, consultation, or any offer of compensation to the Plaintiffs,” the notice of action alleges.
Ontario's horse breeders were particularly hard hit by the cancellation of the slots program that led to a decline in purses and race dates of more than 30 percent across the province and caused the value of Ontario-produced horses to plummet by 50 percent or more.
