Adios Week, the annual extravaganza of top-quality harness racing, family-oriented fun, food and music, will kick off on Saturday, July 22 at the Meadows with eliminations for the $450,000 (est.) Delvin Miller Adios Pace for the Orchids, one of harness racing’s premier events for three-year-old pacers.

The Adios final the following Saturday – the 51st edition of the prestigious stakes event – will highlight the action-packed week. Between the eliminations and the final, the Meadows and the Meadows Standardbred Owners Association will offer a variety of activities to complement eight Grand Circuit stakes featuring some of the best trotters and pacers on the continent.

Adios Week highlights include:
