Meadowlands Racing Plan for Next Weekend

The Meadowlands - The condition sheet is out for next week at The Meadowlands.

While it is Hambletonian weekend and there are a number of stakes, the hope is to have 12 races on Friday and 16 on Saturday so there will be plenty of opportunity to race overnight horses.

There are 2-Year-Old Non Winners of 2PM overnight races for all divisions to go on Friday and a $25,000 Open Trot & Pace written for Saturday. With the top older horses racing in the stakes, these races should provide a good spot for the Open types to show their stuff on the big day.

Hambletonian Day is a showcase for the sport on its greatest stage.

The races will be simulcast internationally as well as televised on CBS Sports network from 4:00 to 5:30.

We'd like it to be the best it can be.

Questions should be directed to the Racing Office at (201) 842-5130.
