The Meadows Standardbred Owners Association has agreed in principle to pay approximately $100,000 per month to Penn National Gaming Inc. to keep the Meadows’ backstretch and track open for horsepeople during the COVID-19 shutdown.

This will cover all expenses incurred to keep the facility open such as, but not limited to, water, electric, security, maintenance, track costs and manure removal. The Board felt its first priority was to ensure the well being of those people and horses stabled at the Meadows.

The MSOA has also announced that they will pay the health insurance premiums for all members on their plan for the next two months. The MSOA is trying to provide both financial and emotional support for its members during this most difficult and uncertain time, and is currently searching for other avenues of support.
