WASHINGTON, PA, Feb. 6, 2014 -- The Meadows, its horsemen and horsewomen will honor the memory of Mike Jeannot with a trackside ceremony at 12:30 PM Friday before the start of the live card. Jeannot, president of Meadows Racing for The Meadows Racetrack & Casino, died last Friday after battling liver cancer.
For the ceremony, the trainer/driver colony -- in their colors -- will walk together from the paddock to the winners' circle, where Pastor Joe DiDonato, track chaplain, will deliver a tribute.
Meadows Live! will carry the ceremony, and all media are invited to attend.
