The Director of the Ontario Racing Commission (ORC) has considered and approved an application for variance from Hiawatha Horse Park regarding its 2013 harness racing date schedule.

The 20 day meet will run Tuesdays and Saturdays starting Saturday, July 20th and ending Saturday, September 28th. All dates are assigned Grassroots status, although Signature status on Tuesdays will be considered if Hiawatha demonstrates sufficient wagering through the uplink of its signal.

Saturdays have been Hiawatha’s strongest date for its live customers and the move from Thursdays to Tuesdays will provide more opportunities in the simulcast market and is consistent with the Ontario Racing Program principle of synchronization of dates.

The change in dates will be reflected in the licence issued to 405730 Ontario Ltd., the owner/operator of Hiawatha Horse Park.

Please be advised that any aggrieved party has the right to appeal the Director’s decision to the Commission.
