      • The horsemen are trying to make grants pass the replacement track. It’s only ½ mile. We hope that they do not succeed! Otherwise Oregon only has county fair meets all on half mile tracks.

  3. Another victim of the 2 year old under tack sales. What a brutal and inhumane way to start young horses! Sadly, the horses always pay for this!
