PORTLAND MEADOWS CLOSED FOR MONDAY OPERATIONS
Portland, OR. – Due to ice and freezing conditions, Portland Meadows Officials closed the facility for Monday operations. The track had already cancelled live racing for Monday as Officials, Horsemen & Horsewomen met again today to determine to cancel live racing for Tuesday, Jan 10th as well.
An extreme Winter blast has crippled the Pacific Northwest in recent days which has made travel next to impossible in many areas. Portland Meadows is still scheduled to race this coming Sunday, Jan 15th and Tuesday, Jan 17th at 12 noon. In today’s meeting, Officials, Horsemen & Horsewomen agreed to the addition of two more days of racing on Monday, Jan 23rd and Tuesday, Jan 24th with a 12 noon post time (PST).
