Breeding in Canada

There are great advantages to breeding to Canadian sires, foaling mares in Canada, and purchasing horses from our sales.

The purse structure for Ontario-foaled horses racing here is worth considering. By visiting the various horse sales around Toronto, Ontario, you’ll discover there is an extensive and lucrative Ontario Sires Program. There is no better time to breed, race or buy in the Ontario market. The Ontario Thoroughbred Improvement Program (TIP) has significance for Ontario Thoroughbred breeders and owners. For a complete list of Stakes races, visit Woodbine Entertainment.

Foals by Ontario sires, regardless of the country, province or state of foaling, are eligible for Ontario sire stakes races. This gives breeders the potential benefit of dual programs for foals born outside Ontario, and an excellent incentive for farms in the Northeastern or Midwest United States to breed to Ontario stallions. Combined with the value of the Canadian dollar at current U.S. exchange rates, this program offers great value for breeders now and in the future. For information on the benefits of breeding and owning horses in Ontario, visit Canadian Thoroughbred Horse Society.

Woodlands Farm can support you with foaling, re-breeding for the lucrative Canadian Bred stakes program that includes the Ontario Owner and Breeder awards, individual feeding programs, breaking yearlings, and bloodstock consultation and advice. Contact Gail Wood.  

At Woodlands Farm, we encourage our clients to come to the farm to see their foals.
