Omega Alpha Pharmaceuticals Inc. Expands Partnership with Equine Canada | Print |

April 26, 2011 — Omega Alpha Pharmaceuticals Inc. has expanded its partnership with Equine Canada and has earned the designation, “Official Supplement Supplier of Equine Canada.” A Canadian owned company, Omega Alpha Pharmaceuticals Inc. has been a longtime supporter of Canada’s equestrian athletes through individual sponsorships and a partnership with the Canadian Eventing Team.

Under the expanded partnership, Omega Alpha Pharmaceuticals Inc. will now extend its financial and supply sponsorship support to include the disciplines of dressage and show jumping. Horses from these three disciplines will also be considered for the ‘Omega Alpha Horse of the Month’ award, which recognizes a performance of exceptional merit.

“We are extremely excited about the sponsorships we have formed with Equine Canada. With our original sponsorship of the Canadian Eventing Team, we took great pride in watching them capture the silver medal at the World Equestrian Games in 2010,” said Dr. Gordon Chang, president, Omega Alpha Pharmaceuticals Inc. “It was only fitting to expand the ‘Omega Alpha Horse of the Month’ program to recognize exceptional performances in Canada’s jumping and dressage horses.”

Omega Alpha Pharmaceuticals Inc. will continue to be the “Official Supplement Supplier to the Canadian Eventing Team,” but will now also become official sponsors of both Jump Canada and Dressage Canada as well.

“We are grateful that as a major Canadian equine health company, Omega Alpha Pharmaceuticals Inc., is making this landmark investment in Canadian equestrianism. It will benefit Canadian horse people from the grassroots to the international arenas,” remarked Equine Canada CEO, Akaash Maharaj.

Dr. Chang added, “It continues to be our pleasure to work with some of the greatest names in equestrian sports. Through our educational programs and our products, which target the specific needs of equine athletes and their riders, the message we want to convey through this partnership with Equine Canada is that with Omega Alpha products you can achieve better health for better performance naturally."
