Washington, Pa – Meadows Racing, home of America’s best daytime harness racing, announced today more than a dozen family-friendly events will be held at the track this year. All this as the track undergoes a rebrand, launches a strategic partnership and debuts a new website. The events, rebrand, advertising, and website represent an investment in advancing the vision for the organization to be a top-of-mind choice for fans and their families as the perfect way to spend a day.
Unlike many other tracks in the United States, Meadows Racing conducts racing year round, with nearly 200 days of the year featuring live harness racing. Now, Meadows Racing encourages you to “Experience The Whoa!” – in a series of new ads launching this month.
The website, www.meadowsracing.net, highlights family-friendly events at the track including Triple Crown celebrations, a Food Truck Festival and Corks & Kegs Weekend. It also offers a full racing calendar, betting help and details about other attractions along Racetrack Road.
This year, Meadows Racing is an official partner of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
