East Rutherford, N.J. -- In an effort to better accommodate the often busy morning schedules of trainers racing at the Meadowlands, a list of horses for which trainer reports are requested for a given week is now posted at http://meadowlandsracetrack.com/uploadedFiles/trainerreport1218.pdf. This list will be posted every Tuesday afternoon going forward for that weekend's races. Note, this week's list will be updated with preliminary morning line favorites for Saturday by this evening, so please check again prior to Wednesday for updated information.
Trainers are encouraged to check this list and email their reports to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday for Friday entrants, and 1:00 p.m. on Thursday for Saturday entrants. Alternately, they can phone reports to Darin Zoccali at (201) 460-4041 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday mornings, or trainers to whom the personal mobile phone numbers of Zoccali or James Witherite have been made available can submit them by text message or phone call.
It is anticipated the additional lead time availed our horsemen will make this process easier and more efficient while still yielding the same information to our betting public.
