Meadowlands Offers Short Series for Freshmen

East Rutherford, NJ – The Meadowlands has two announcements regarding upcoming races for two-year-olds.

First, in response to a request by the SBOA of NJ, there will no longer be a charge to race in the “Baby Races” at The Meadowlands.

Also, starting next week there will be a short series written for two-year-olds of each gait and sex with $12,500 eliminations on the weekend of June 23 & 24 and $25,000 added finals the following weekend.

The nomination fee is $500 and to enter you need only declare the horse in the event listed on the condition sheet by the close of box at 9:00 a.m. next Monday, June 20.

If there are not enough horses entered to race as a series, it may be used as an overnight race for a purse of $12,500 with no fee required.

Call the racing office at 201-842-5130 with questions.
