Saturday’s $375,000 final of the Delvin Miller Adios Pace for the Orchids promises to be exciting, and now the Meadows has upped the ante by adding a Super Hi-5 wager on the Adios with a $50,000 guarantee. Moreover, the entire pool will be paid out.

Ordinarily, the Super Hi-5 jackpot is paid only if there is a single correct ticket with the top five finishers in their exact order of finish. However, The Adios Super Hi-5 pool will be split among all those with correct tickets. The last time the Meadows offered a mandatory Super Hi-5 payout, players bet so enthusiastically that the pool exceeded $300,000 and provided a healthy return for all winning ticketholders.

In addition to the Super Hi-5, the program offers two total-pool carryovers: $2,441.84 in the Early Pick 4 (Race 3), $1,908.78 in the Early Pick 5 (Race 2). The Adios Day card will get underway with a special post time of 11:25 a.m., and advance Adios wagering will be available beginning at noon on Thursday.

The Adios, which has been programmed as Race 15 and carries an approximate post time of 4:02 p.m., anchors a powerhouse card that also features the $107,320 Quinton Patterson Adioo Volo for three-year-old filly pacers, a $59,088 Arden Downs stakes split for freshman colt and gelding pacers, and a $35,690 Arden Downs stop for two-year-old filly pacers. Other highlights include a pair of stakes for three-year-old filly trotters: a $187,182 Pennsylvania Sire Stakes leg and an $80,000 PA Stallion Series event.

While the Adios will be staged without spectators, the Meadows Standardbred Owners Association (MSOA) is keeping the event festive with a number of digital activities. First, the MSOA will live stream from the winners’ circle beginning at 11:15 a.m. on Adios Day. The live stream, which will feature celebrity guests, will be available on the MSOA’s Facebook and YouTube pages.

The MSOA also will offer free Adios Day programs and a virtual hat contest (sponsored by Altmeyer Wilder Racing) with a $250 top prize. Visit for your free program and the chapeau competition. And if you enter, think orchids, think purple.
