The Meadows Racetrack

Address: 210 Racetrack Rd, Washington, Pennsylvania 15301, United States


The Meadows Racetrack was the first parimutuel horse racing track in Western Pennsylvaniais and the oldest track overall in Pennsylvania.It opened in November of 1962.

The Meadows is known for introducing major technological advancements. In 1983, the track implemented Call-A-Bet and the Meadows Racing Network (MRN), that allowed bettors to create individual wagering accounts and phone in wagers for races.

With a racing schedule that goes on year-round, the racing calendar is highlighted by the $1,000,000 Coors Delvin Miller Adios Week, a major harness stakes races culminating with the $500,000 Adios Pace for the Orchids, Pennsylvania's richest stakes race.


In his elimination, Alsace Hanover set a world record for 3-year-old geldings — and he wasn't done yet. He blazed to victory in the final in 1:48.3, fastest ever paced by a sophomore gelding on a five-eighths-mile track. In doing so, he defeated Custard The Dragon, who established a world record for 3-year-old colts in his Adios elim, and gave Ron Pierce his third blanker of orchids. Pierce triumphed previously with Timesareachanging (2004) and Village Jolt (2005).

ADIOS 46 — Bolt The Duer — 2012

Entering the Adios, Bolt The Duer was suffering from “seconditis,” with place finishes in the Art Rooney, the Hempt final and his Adios elimination. But in the final of the “Pace for the Orchids,” he sat the pocket behind the unprecedented fractions thrown down by A Rocknroll Dance - three-quarters in 1:19.2 - shot the Lightning Lane and triumphed at 11-1 in 1:47.4, fastest mile ever on a five-eighths-mile track. Mark MacDonald drove the son of Ponder-Wonderbolt for trainer Peter Foley and owner All Star Racing Inc. Amazingly, A Rocknroll Dance saved place.
