THE ADIOS PACE FOR THE ORCHIDS
JULY 29, 2023
Experience the thrill of the 56TH Annual Delvin Miller Adios Pace for the Orchids – PA’s Biggest Harness Race
The Hollywood Casino at the Meadows culminates a week of Grand Circuit Harness Racing with their biggest race of the year: The Delvin Miller Adios Pace for the Orchids.
On Saturday, July 29, The Meadows will saddle up for this fun filled event that will include contests, giveaways, and more!
Experience the thrill and excitement of harness racing, a form of horseracing where the horses race at a trot or pace while pulling a driver in a sulky. For those new to the world of horse racing, a sulky is a lightweight two-wheeled carriage built for one person. Watch as these athletic, intelligent, and strategic drivers compete for that first-place spot, and if you are feeling lucky, take your guess on who it may be.
With free admission, there is nothing standing in your way of experiencing a spectacular night you won’t forget.
