Comments

Thank you, Craig, for the lovely comment re my daughter, Joree. It was Jor's grandma's 86th birthday... and you made my mom tear up.
I assume the track is open to the public, but the information on the website and contact phone message is sadly outdated. Weak effort at best.☹️
Are bettors allowed ontrack?
Are fans allowed in to watch the races?
Does anybody need help packing today
Hey gang! Tried to phone in a few bets and was denied! Guess I'll wait for a track that values my business! Pleased I'm not able to participate with your crazy high takeout % anyway! Cheers!
We had a couple of cancellations for RV spots. We are located 5 miles from the track. 50/20/110 amp hook ups. Starting at $750 a month. Brand new spots located on private property.
Anyone looking for
stall cleaner
Hot Walker
Are spectators going to be allowed at the races?
thankyou to the "very nice gentleman" who answered my VOTE/ BALLOT BOX Questions!!
Is the track open now?
Are Arizonans allowed to bet on the Preakness Horse Race on October3, 2020 through Turf Paradise?

Our leading apprentice Joree Scriver getting the job done at Grants Pass!

Grants Pass Downs
Jockey of the Week
Joree Scriver

Joree Scriver rode five winners—including four on Tuesday—to earn Jockey of the Week honors for the second time this season. Through eight days of racing, Scriver leads Mckenzie King 15-8 in the overall standings and is on pace for her second straight riding crown at Grants Pass Downs.

Scriver won four of the final five races Tuesday including her second win of the meet aboard Jaded Tiger, a 4-year-old Oregon-bred filly who rallied past Chiefs Lil Pearl to capture Tuesday’s featured event for fillies and mares. A 20-year-old native of Curlew, Wash., Scriver also scored victories last week on Shockazulu, Beau Rocks, Seventh Wave and Jersey Red.

Congratulations, Joree! 🙌🏇🏻🥇
