WASHINGTON, PA, July 27, 2015 -- The Aug. 1 Adios Day harness racing card at The Meadows Racetrack & Casino will feature a special race to honor the memory of Roy D. Davis, longtime Meadows-based horse owner and founder of "Team Spur," who died June 16. The Roy D. Davis Invitational for 4-year-old pacers will offer a $50,000 purse.

Davis and Hall of Fame trainer/driver Dick Stillings were the principals of Team Spur, which enjoyed uncommon success, including victories in the Little Brown Jug, the Adios, the Breeders Crown, the Cane Pace and the Yonkers Trot. Davis also was a successful travel industry entrepreneur; his Royal Travel Corp. was headquartered on property adjacent to The Meadows.

For the Adios, The Meadows has chosen Junior Achievement as its charity partner. JA will offer autographs from sports stars at its trackside Legends Tent and will stage a raffle and a Chinese auction.

First post Adios Day is 12:20 PM.
