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 over the weekend which led to the cancellation of the live race card for Monday, January 9. Track officials and Oregon horsemen will meet on Monday to determine the situation for Tuesday.

The extreme winter weather conditions also forced cancellations and postponements to other area sporting events in Portland. Racing is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, January 10; Sunday, January 15; and Tuesday, January 17.

Post time is slated for 12:00 noon Pacific Time at Portland Meadows for the rest of the season. Go to for more information.
