Officials with the Meadows have officially announced that Coors Light has signed on as title sponsor for the $600,000 (est.) Delvin Miller Adios, the track’s signature race.

The event now will be known as the ‘Delvin Miller Adios Pace for the Orchids Presented by Coors Light.’

Kevin Decker, director of racing for the Meadows, thanked Coors Light for its support and noted that the title sponsorship extends the productive partnership between Coors Light and the Meadows, which already includes a ‘Coors Light Race of the Day.’

“As one of the premier sporting events of the summer, the Adios is a natural fit for Coors Light,” Decker said. “We anticipate a number of joint promotional efforts, targeted to existing and new fans, that will enhance the awareness and impact of the Adios.”

This year’s Adios, a major test for three-year-old colt and gelding pacers that highlights Grand Circuit Week at the Meadows, will be contested over the last two Saturdays in July. Eliminations are scheduled for the evening of Saturday, July 19, while the final will be raced the following Saturday afternoon as the anchor of a blockbuster card which is expected to offer approximately $1 million in purses.

Also featured are:

  • The $150,000 (est.) Quinton L. Patterson Adioo Volo for three-year-old filly pacers;

  • The $100,000 (est.) Gov. David L. Lawrence for freshman colt and gelding pacers;

  • The $100,000 (est.) Mary Lib Miller for two-year-old filly pacers;

  • The $65,000 (est.) James Manderino for sophomore colt and gelding trotters;

  • The $65,000 (est.) Ned McCarr for three-year-old filly trotters.
