LEBANON, OH. – Miami Valley Raceway, already boasting one of the highest overnight purse structures in the industry, is proud to announce a 20% across-the-board purse increase, effective Sunday (April 16) and through the end of the meet on May 6. The estimated average nightly purses will increase from $191,000 to $229,200 per day. Online condition sheets have already been updated reflecting the higher purses.
Miami Valley races on a Sunday through Thursday five days a week schedule.
