Horse Racing Licensing

In 2018-2019, the AGCO continued its efforts to implement a regulatory framework that supports a modern, efficient, and consumer-focused racing industry. AGCO Licensing Agents work at racetracks and at its head office in Toronto. The AGCO licenses participants in the horse racing industry (i.e. jockeys, trainers, drivers, veterinarians), racetracks (i.e. associations) and teletheatres.
