The Meadowlands is requiring that all horses entered in the stakes listed here be stabled at an approved training facility within a 150 mile radius (as the crow flies) of The Meadowlands or in the stable area at Vernon Downs by 8 p.m. (EDT) on Monday, July 31 and be made available for out of competition testing as requested.
The stakes are all part of the Saturday, August 5 race card; the Cane Pace, Sam McKee Memorial (US Pacing Championship) Lady Liberty, John Cashman Memorial, Dr John Steele Memorial (Fresh Yankee).
This time frame was chosen to avoid conflict with the Spirit of Massachusetts trot and the Adios, as both of those stakes are raced the previous weekend.
There will be no charge for the stabling at Vernon and a discounted hotel rate of $20 per night will again be offered to those with these stakes horses.
Trainers for all of the horses entered in those stakes are responsible for informing The Meadowlands Racing Office at 877.782.5130 of where each horse will be stabled from July 31 until the stakes have been raced.
Questions should be directed to Brice Cote at 609.558.5062.
