Portland Meadows 2014-15 Live Race Meet Sees Average Daily Handle Increases Over 2013-14 Meet

Portland, OR – Portland Meadows’ thirty-six day live racing season ended on Tuesday February 10, 2015 concluding the 68th season of live racing that got underway on October 12, 2014.  Average daily handle was up as both in-state and export handle saw increases this season compared with the previous meet.                               

Average all-sources handle was $490,610 per race day, a 7.14% increase over the previous season daily average which was $457,924.  In-state handle was up 8.08% to $42,634, up from last year’s average of $39,445 per race day.  Export sales increased 7.05% each race day to $447,976 from last year’s average of $418,479.  

“We had success with large crowds on big event days and we are very pleased with the year over year increases in daily average in-state handle” said general manager Will Alempijevic.  “It was also great to see horseplayers from all over respond to our new schedule as Export sales were strong on both Tuesday and Sunday race days.” 

A total of $2,016,800 was paid in out in purses during the season for an average purse payout of $56,022 per race day.  This represents a slight decrease from last season’s per race day payout, which was $56,372.   

The average number of starters per race increased for the second straight season.  The 2014-15 season averaged 7.61 horses per race, up from 7.55 last season and 6.72 in 2012. 

On the track, jockey Leonel Camacho-Flores took home his first riding title as he led the Thoroughbred standings with 70 wins.  Rigoberto Velasquez had 43 wins to win the Thoroughbred training title.  Luis Gonzalez took home the Quarter Horse riding title with 19 scores while Nick Lowe was the leading trainer with 12 wins in the Quarter Horse standings.

 Portland Meadows remains open daily for simulcasting during the spring and summer.
