GRANTS PASS, Ore--- Grants Pass Downs has announced that Michael Wrona will be the announcer for the first ever fall race meet, on Tuesday. 

Wrona is a very popular name in the world of Horse Racing. 

Wrona will announce all 14 races of the fall race meet. 

“We’re thrilled to welcome one of the best announcers in the sport to Grants Pass to help us kick off a new era of racing in Oregon,” said Travis Boersma, president of TMB Racing, Grants Pass Downs’ parent organization. “Michael is the perfect fit for this moment, and his unique calling style and raw enthusiasm for racing will only mirror the excitement we’re seeing from the Grants Pass community heading into the fall meet.”

Wrona is also very excited about the upcoming meet. 

“I was invited to call a few races at Grants Pass Downs in July and was made to feel very welcome by all levels of this quality organization,” said Wrona. “I’m excited to help launch a new era in Oregon racing as Grants Pass Downs acquires the license previously held by Portland Meadows. The ownership and management have great passion and vision for the track, which is in a beautiful area that I’ll enjoy exploring.”
