McFadden series named in honor of "the father of Oregon Horse Racing"

The name McFadden and Oregon horse racing go back a long way, in fact they go back to times before there was horse racing in the state.  Pari-mutuel wagering made its way to Oregon because of Julian McFadden, who wrote and passed the bill in 1933 in his first year as a legislator in Oregon, which allowed pari-mutuel wagering to come to Oregon.  The sport has grown over the decades in this state, but the story of the man with whom Portland Meadows pays tribute to with the McFadden Memorial Spring Claiming Series is an interesting one.
