Portland Meadows officials and Oregon horsemen met again on Monday afternoon, following the cancellation of Monday's race card, to discuss the Tuesday, January 10, race card. Cancelling the Tuesday card was an easy decision, given the extreme Winter blast that has crippled the Pacific Northwest, and specifically the Portland area, in recent days.

During the meeting, racetrack officials and horsemen also decided to extend the season by two days—Monday and Tuesday, January 23 and 24. The season had already been extended once to include live race days on Sunday, January 15, and Tuesday, January 17.

First post for all four newly scheduled race days is at 12:00 noon local (Pacific) time.
