COVID-19 Updates  


In response to ongoing developments related to COVID-19 and to support social distancing, the Manitoba Horse Racing Commission (MHRC) is taking the following steps:

  • The MHRC office located in the backstretch of Assiniboia Downs is closing to the public effective March 20, 2020 until further notice.
  • A blanket extension for all current MHRC licences will be applied until May 31, 2020, to eliminate the need for renewals in the coming weeks. If you were not licensed by the MHRC in 2019, you are required to apply for a new licence. We will accept licence applications via fax (204)831-0942, or through email to:
  • Licence applications are available on our website: or in an envelope posted beside the entrance door to the MHRC office.
  • Payment for new licence applications can be made via cheque, and mailed to: Manitoba Horse Racing Commission PO Box 46086 RPO Westdale, Winnipeg, MB R3R 3S3
  • While our office is closed, we will continue to provide support through telephone (204)885-7770, fax, email and regular mail.

Our thoughts are with our friends, neighbours and community members as we all navigate the path ahead. We will continue to monitor the evolving COVID-19 situation and take appropriate steps to minimize risks of exposure for our staff and spread of the virus within the province.
