GUELPH, ON -- TheStable.ca, harness racing's fastest-growing fractional ownership operation, will welcome special guest Daniel Dube to its Open House on May 12.

Dube will join a collection of top drivers showcasing TheStable.ca's two-year-old hopefuls.

The Quebec native celebrated his 9,000th win on March 17 at Yonkers Raceway.

Having driven horses to more than $121,000,000 (CDN), Dube is one of the top 20 all-time money winning drivers in harness racing. Among the many standout horses he has steered are Horse Of The Year winners Gallo Blue Chip (2000) and Rock N Roll Heaven (2010).

"I've known Anthony for a long time, said Dube. "When he approached me about attending their Open House, I was intrigued. Driving in the stakes program in New York I was impressed with what I saw from TheStable.ca's videos of their New York eligible horses," he said.

"Another good friend of mine, Scott Di Domenico, owns a piece of one of them and will be training all four this summer, so I am looking forward to going with the babies. Its going to be a lots of fun," said Dube.

Clients of TheStable.ca and newcomers of all ages are welcome to attend the event at Tomiko Training Centre (210 Campbellville Rd., Hamilton) and drop-in any time from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The event is free but an RSVP is requested.

During the Open House, guests are invited to meet the horses of TheStable.ca and chat with owners Anthony and Amy MacDonald, their staff, clients, and industry professionals.

The event will showcase many of the engaging features of TheStable.ca, including its bi-weekly live streaming video broadcasts of TheStable.ca horses in training.

The Open House broadcast kicks off at 10:00 a.m., when the horses will train on the racetrack. Dube and fellow drivers will steer the young colts and fillies, while TV commentators preview the horses' pedigrees. The broadcast will include live interviews and video features and be streamed at TheStable.ca starting at 10:00 a.m. EST

A catalogue will be available on The Stable.ca on May 10, detailing all horses for which fractions are available for purchase. The catalogue will include a schedule of when each horse will be showcased on the broadcast during the Open House.

Several prizes will be awarded throughout the event, including one-percent fractions of the horses.

Onsite purchasing will be available for horses and merchandise. Payment can be made with credit card, PayPal, cash, cheque and e-transfer.

The facility offers a heated viewing area with limited seating. Hot and cold drinks will be sold as a fundraising effort by Racing Under Saddle Ontario. Lunch is available to purchase from the Gastro Grub Food Truck.

Now in its fourth year, TheStable.ca is an award-winning fractional racehorse ownership operation based in Guelph, ON. There are currently 130 Standardbred horses owned by nearly 700 people from 11 countries worldwide.

The innovative and engaging model invites people to own a little and love it a lot. Clients can purchase as little as one percent of a horse, making the thrill of harness racing and racehorse ownership easy, accessible and affordable.

The MacDonalds built this fractional ownership stable as a bridge -- a way to welcome non-horse-people to racehorse ownership with a very modest investment (as low as $100), low-risk, and completely accessible and transparent operations.

Complete Open House event details and the RSVP form are available here.
