EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (July 11, 2017) – The 41st Crawford Farms Meadowlands Pace will air live on SNY, Saturday, July 15 from 9:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
SNY is the official home of the New York Mets, Jets, and all things New York sports and is available throughout New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and parts of Pennsylvania. It is also available nationwide on DirecTV.
