The Meadows Standardbred Owners Association and The Meadows Racing will host the track's sixth annual Pink Out event tonight, Saturday, November 1. Post time for the special evening card will be 6:55 p.m.

Race No. 4 on the card will feature a 10-horse field and 10 female drivers. Two-time reigning Pink Out champion Rachel Kaneoka will defend her title from post seven with Fortissimo, but is 20-1 on the morning line. The early favourite is Gambler Springs, who leaves from post five for Indiana's Tabby Canarr, who is making the trek to Pennsylvania for her first Pink Out race.

The seventh race on the card has been designated as the Breast Cancer Awareness event, and the MSOA will donate its commissions from all money wagered to breast cancer research.

The card also features four Late Closer Series finals, with purses topping $110,000 in total. The new series for two-year-olds have been well received and supported by horsemen, and tonight's finals follow two series legs held during October.

Another special event on tap for the evening is a guest appearance by Sophia Stillings, granddaughter of Hall of Famer Dick Stillings. Sophia recently won multiple world titles in the Morgan Grand Nationals and World Championships. She and her horse, Artful Image, will join marshal Wendy Ross to lead a post parade during the evening card.

This will be the final night card of 2014 at The Meadows, with the remainder of the season racing at 12:55 afternoon posts.
