Meadowlands Live and Breeders Cup Simulcast This Weekend

East Rutherford, NJ - Meadowlands live racing returns on Friday with a dozen solid overnight events beginning at 7:15 p.m. and the excitement of this year's Breeders Cup simulcast throughout the building all weekend.

The Billings Amateur Series comes through town with a competitive field of nine set to kick off the weekend in the first half of Friday's Daily Double.

The Friday feature is a conditioned trot in the sixth with an interesting mix of accomplished veterans led by the 2012 Hambletonian winner of over $3.7 million Market Share facing a hard hitting group that includes Rock Of Cashel, Opulent Yankee and Waiting On A Woman.

So far as the Breeders Cup from Santa Anita, the Friday races get underway at 2:25 p.m. local time with four Cup races. The big day is the Saturday card that starts at 1:15 Eastern and concludes with the $6 million Classic featuring the highly anticipated battle between champion California Chrome and upstart Arrogate scheduled for around 8:30 p.m. Pink will serve a buffet and there will be wagering promotions throughout the day.
