SEVERE WINTER WEATHER FORCES CANCELLATION OF MONDAY CARD AT PORTLAND MEADOWS
Portland, OR. – In what was expected to be the first day of an extended race meet at Portland Meadows, a major winter weather system brought freezing rain, snow and ice conditions over the weekend which led to Track Officials and Oregon Horsemen and Horsewomen to cancel racing for Monday. The groups will meet again tomorrow morning to determine the situation for Tuesday.
The extreme winter weather conditions also forced cancellations and postponements to other area sporting events as well in Portland. Racing is tentatively scheduled for Sunday, Jan 15th and Tuesday, Jan 17th.
Post time is slated for 12pm (noon) PST at Portland Meadows for the rest of the season.
