Meadowlands Testing Updates for Meadowlands Pace Weekend

The Meadowlands wants to reiterate its stance on putting forth the most integrity-driven product in all of racing.  We take blood samples from horses all year long for the purposes of out of competition testing and that practice will continue with our most significant stakes races upon us.  In fact, we have taken blood samples from the following horses which will be sent to the labs in Hong Kong, which are unparalleled in their diligence and effectiveness:

1. Dancin Yankee
2. Wakizashi Hanover
3. Artspeak
4. Trading Up
5 .Dealt a Winner
6. Rock N Roll World
7. Lyons Levi Lewis
8. In The Arsenal
9. Wiggle it Jiggle it
10. JL Cruze
11. Opulent Yankee
12. Badiou Hanover
13. Gural Hanover
14. Shake it Cerry
15. Dancin Yankee
16. Father Patrick

"It goes without saying that the out of competition testing at The Meadowlands is second to none," said Meadowlands Chairman Jeff Gural.  "I want it to be perfectly clear that our testing continues at a very high level during our most important stakes races. It is important to us that our customers know there is a level playing field for them to wager on all season long, especially when it comes to our marquis events. I want to thank Brice Cote for his tireless efforts in this regard."

The Meadowlands plans to continue this testing next week after some of the stakes elimination races have been contested.
