This is the first entry of a series I’ll be doing this season called “Beem on the Backside.” Let me introduce myself first. I’m Jason Beem and I’m the announcer here at Portland Meadows. I’ve been here since 2006, so this upcoming season will be my 9th season at this wonderful track. One of my favorite things to do during the year is to go to the backstretch and wander around and visit with all the personalities that reside back there, as well as the horses.
