250 Years of Horse Racing in Canada
A full 100 years before the confederation of Canada, the first advertised horse race took place in 1767 on the Plains of Abraham. The race was won a mare named Modesty and her rider, Captain Prescott. 250 years later, while the country is celebrating its 150th anniversary, we are celebrating the thrilling and diverse sporting industry that grew out of that moment.
The Canadian Thoroughbred Horse Society (C.T.H.S.) was incorporated in 1906 under the Federal Live Stock Pedigree Act (presently called the Animal Pedigree Act – 1988) as a national breed organization to assist breeders of Thoroughbred horses in Canada. The National Office determines the requirements for Canadian-bred status of foals, maintains the Breeder Membership Roster for Canada, compiles statistics and represents Canadian Thoroughbred breeders nationally and internationally.
