Zilver looks to keep rolling in the McFadden Memorial Sprint Claiming Series

A racehorse’s life and career is never as simple as what’s on the past performance page. There’s always so much that occurs between each running line that helps to better paint a picture of that horse and how he or she got to where they are. For the five-year-old Thoroughbred runner Zilver, the story is one of many van rides, a few different owners, and finding a track he loves.

Pick 5 Carryover for Sunday November 3rd

When 31/1 shot Midnight Matty lit up the toteboard in the 9th race on Wednesday, it spurred a $2,825 carryover in the Pick 5 sequence for Sunday November 3rd.  The Pick 5 sequence will cover races 5 through 9 on Sunday and post time for the fifth race is 1:58pm (Pacific).  

The Portland Meadows Pick 5 is a $0.25 base wager and features a low takeout rate of 15%.
