Attached for your convenience below is the stall application for the 2014-2015 Race Meet at Portland Meadows.
Unfortunately the cost of removing straw has become so prohibitive we must use pellets, shavings or sawdust this year.
We understand that is more costly to you our horsemen and horsewomen. To help the OHBPA Board is in the process of creating a program that will provide some financial assistance to all of you with regard to bedding. Stay tuned for more information coming out soon!!
Portland Meadows Update
Good Evening OHBPA Members and Fellow Stakeholders,
Today the Oregon Racing Commission approved a race meet license for Portland Meadows contingent upon a written agreement between the OHBPA and Portland Meadows. That written agreement is close to being finalized but there are a few details that need to be worked out. So until that contract is agreed to and signed by both parties nothing is final at this time. We hope to have the written agreement to the Oregon Racing Commission within the next 30 days.
As soon as the parties agree to the contract and submit the agreement to the Oregon Racing Commission we will communicate with you again on all the details of the race meet.
My personal thanks to all of you for your patience. I know this has been a very difficult time not knowing what will happen with Portland Meadows and the 2014-2015 race meet. Please know your OHBPA Board has been doing an extraordinary amount of work in negotiating with Portland Meadows with your best interests in mind.
Please feel free to share this e-mail with those interested parties I might have missed. Thank you!!
Randy C. Evers
