Adios Week at the Meadows, the annual festive celebration of harness racing highlighted by the 48th edition of ‘The Pace for the Orchids,’ for three-year-old colt and gelding pacers, which is presented by Coors Light,

The Adios final will take place during the afternoon of Saturday, July 26 and will be the highlight of a card that will feature six Grand Circuit stakes. Purses that day are expected to top $1 million, making it one of the richest cards in the history of the Meadows.

“We’ve gone all out to make this the most memorable Adios Week ever,” said Kevin Decker, director of racing for the Meadows. “We deeply appreciate the support of our fans, and we’ve put together an exciting week to support our signature event.”

Among those exciting elements are four Adios Day (July 26) pool guarantees offered in association with the United States Trotting Association Strategic Wagering Initiative. The guarantees, which total $42,500, cover a Pick 3, a Pick 5 and a pair of Pick 4s.

  • An Adios hat giveaway on track Saturday, July 19;

  • A pair of handicapping contests at all Meadows locations on Monday, July 21 and Tuesday, July 22. The hat giveaway and handicapping contests are limited to Racing Player Rewards members.
