Another 10 percent purse increase set for The Meadows

Washington, PA — The Board of Directors of the Meadows Standardbred Owners Association has announced a 10 percent across-the-board purse increase, effective Oct. 1, for races at Hollywood Casino at The Meadows.

Rich Gillock, MSOA president, noted that this purse increase follows on the heels of a 10 percent purse increase that took effect Aug. 3.

“We’ve been able to improve our purses regularly because our horsemen and horsewomen continue to stage exciting, competitive races that are extremely popular with the betting public,” Gillock said. “In an age of many wagering options for players, our product stands out.”

Scott Lishia, director of racing for The Meadows, noted that several stables recently have relocated to the track to take advantage of the richer purse structure.

“Our robust purses and the opportunity to race year round make The Meadows an attractive home base for trainers and owners,” Lishia said.
