Seven Day Fair Meet Set To Run at Grants Pass This Summer

GRANTS PASS, OR–MAY 5, 2022–On May 3, the Oregon Racing Commission approved a plan submitted by the Southern Oregon Horse Racing Association to operate a seven-day fair meet at Grants Pass Downs.

The original meet at Grants Pass was cancelled following the commission’s denial in February of historical racing machines at the racetrack.

The Southern Oregon Horse Racing Association team is headed by Rod Lowe as the director of racing, and they are planning race dates of June 19-21, June 27-28 and July 3-4.

Each day will include eight races per day, with Quarter Horse purses marked at $5,000.
