Meadowlands Stakes Payments Due

East Rutherford, NJ---Nomination payments for stakes and early closers for the 2014 season at The Meadowlands Racetrack come due on February 15. The 38th edition of the $750,000e Meadowlands Pace, signature Grand Circuit stake at the track, offers a reduction in the nominating and sustaining payments for 2014 of nearly 20 percent compared with the 2013 levels. The price to nominate has been slashed in half, from $1,000 to $500. New for 2014 is a tiered declaration fee, dropping the cost of entry in the elimination races from the single declaration fee of $6,000 to $2,500 for the elimination and then $5,000 to go in the final (if eliminations are not needed, the cost to race in the final will be $7,500).

Also due are the initial installments for all Meadowlands administrated/hosted stakes including the second edition of the TVG FFA Trotting & Pacing Championship.

Forms and further details are available at The Meadowlands website or a call to the Racing Office at 877-782-2537.
