DSC00059The Meadows Standardbred Owners Association celebrated a special night away from the track on Friday (July 1), visiting nearby CONSOL Energy Park for a minor league baseball game hosted by the Washington Wild Things.

After the horsemen enjoyed a buffet dinner, longtime Meadows trainer/driver Wilbur Yoder threw out the ceremonial first pitch.

Bus Lane, a retired Standardbred, greeted baseball fans on their way into the park, and local charity Horses With Hope was on hand to promote their organization as well.

MSOA members enjoyed a Wild Things victory, 4-3 over the visiting Florence (KY) Freedom.
