Olg Slots At Ajax Downs Ajax, On
Ajax Downs Live Quarter Horse Racing
Ajax Downs has a long history of Quarter Horse Racing in Canada since 1969. The original name of Picov Downs” was changed in 2006 with the establishment of a new Slots facility and construction of a full 6-furlong oval racetrack which was completed in 2009.
The OLG Slots at Ajax Downs was established in Ajax in 2006. Promoting the popular Quarter Horse Racing, Alexander Picov imported many American Quarter Horses into Ontario. The GTA Gaming Bundle sale involved the disposition of gaming assets including OLG Slots at Woodbine and Ajax Downs, and the Great Blue Heron Casino.
Quarter-horse racing is responsible for 1,700 jobs in Durham Region, and the revenue from the slots has helped keep property taxes lower. Since it's opening in 1969, Picov Downs has been host to American Quarter Horse races in Ajax, Ontario. In making the announcement that slots and horse racing will be restored, Phillips, a former OLG and Postmedia CEO, said it best.
These funds have allowed the town to invest in multiple local initiatives, such as a new Fire Headquarters and Training Facility, a new Operations Centre, a new recreation centre and many upgrades to local roads and infrastructure. She makes sure OLG Slots at Ajax is a known presence in the community through her work with local festivals and initiatives.
If they can solve those issues, the PC announcement will mean that Durham Live can go ahead and Ajax Downs can continue. Our employees create excitement each and every day by providing our customers with a great gaming experience,” said Spencer Parazader, General Manager of OLG Slots at Ajax Downs.
OLG Slots at Ajax Downs employs 330 employees who have welcomed almost 15 million customers in the last decade. I always liked the idea of Ajax keeping its horse racing and casino and had no problem with finding a way for Pickering to build a Vegas-style casino, too.
During the 10th running of this race, OCEANS TEN, the 1993 Canada Champion Racing Quarter Horse, set a track record for 400 yards in a time of :19:91. Under the direction of the Quarter Racing Owners of Ontario Inc., which manages the track's meets, PIcov Downs held it's first AQHA recognized meet in 1971, and in 1984 hosted the first Rages to Riches Futurity.
Without the slots, the Town of Ajax stands to lose $8 million in revenue yearly,” said Phillips. This year, a three-member consortium — Great Canadian Gaming Corp., Brookfield Business Partners and Clairvest — acquired the right to run the gaming assets for at least the next 22 years.
Ajax Downs is home to quarter-horse racing, but there are many other similar tracks across the province that run the risk of extinction. It provides unique entertainment, as the only Slots facility in Durham Region, sharing the lot with the Ajax Picov Downs and offering live music and dining all in one.
OLG has also been a proud community sponsor of many community events such as the Town of Ajax Volunteer Recognition Awards, Taste of Ajax, Ajax Home Week Fireworks and the Annual Business Excellence Awards. OLG is excited to celebrate and share in their facilities with the community and all of the athletes taking part in the Games.|||||||||
