Fort Erie LogoThe Fort Erie Live Racing Consortium (FELRC) Board of Directors announced that they will be applying to the Ontario Racing Commission (ORC) for a 40 day race schedule for 2016.

The 2016 race season will have a similar race calendar, purses and operations as the 2015 race season.  Start and end dates may be adjusted as the staff work out the detailed operational strategy.

“The Board of Directors of the FELRC made a commitment when they took over the failing racetrack to ensure our horse people, our staff and our fans knew before each current year-end about the following seasons race program”, said James Thibert, FELRC CEO.

Fort Erie has 2 more race days remaining for the 2015 season.  Post times have been changed to 1:30pm for Sunday, October 18 and Tuesday, October 20, 2015.
