Special Labor Day Racing

On Monday September 3, Portland Meadows will have a special day of live racing.  Featured on the Labor Day card is the 47th running of the Portland Mile.

The Portland Mile is our signature event and always draws the best horses from the Pacific Northwest with its $35,000 purse - the largest purse (prize money) offered of the year at Portland Meadows!

Five other $10,000 Stakes races will also be featured on 'Mile Day.

The Turf Club will feature a special buffet for the low price of $25.00 per person.  The buffet includes a made to order omelet bar, hazelnut salmon, crab cakes, carved New-York strip roast and many other tasty delights.  Click HERE to download the buffet menu and reservations are recommended.

HorsePlay, our kids zone located on the second floor Clubhouse level will be open so bring the entire family as there will be lots of activities for the children.

The Beer-B-Q Tent will be open serving mouth watering Bar-B-Q and thirst quenching beverages.

The Glorious Cornhole Toss - a Wednesday race night staple - will also be available on the apron and Desiree would love to give you a free betting voucher.  If you are successful of course!

Expert handicapper Al Peterson, co-host of PORTLAND MEADOWS: HORSE RACING LIVE on Comcast SportsNet NW will be providing analysis and his selections throughout the day.

Local Django-style band the Kung Pao Chicken will be playing live from the Beer-B-Q tent from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM.
