The Club Jockey du Québec is a not-for-profit organization whose legal existence was conferred through letters patent by the Quebec enterprise registrar on June 19, 2009.
The Quebec Jockey Club was founded by a group of businessmen who are or have been owners of Standardbred race or breeding horses.
Members of the Quebec Jockey Club each made a monetary commitment to the venture with the understanding that all profits generated would be re-invested to ensure the revival and development of horse racing in Quebec and that their initial investment would be paid back over a period of five years.
The objective of the Jockey Club is to restore Quebec’s horse racing industry through internet betting, the re-opening of betting parlours, and most importantly the presentation of live race programs on a track in Quebec.
Finally, the Jockey Clubs intends to bring back the old-world charm of harness racing in the coming years in addition to building a green racetrack in the Montreal region.
