Wednesday, November 11, 2020

- The Meadowlands is pleased to announce that purses will be increased by 25% across the board starting with the upcoming condition sheet for November 13-14.  


"The bump keeps our purses in line with the highest offered among tracks currently racing,"said Racing Secretary Scott Warren. "We're heading into the time of year when full fields and competitive overnight racing are imperative to make the product attractive to the horseplayers. We have also adjusted our wagering menu as a part of the push to maximize handle at The Meadowlands through the winter months." 


Also on the condition sheet for next weekend are overnights for all divisions of 2 year olds to provide a prep race for the $1.8 million Freshman Fall Final Four which will co-headline the stakes laden November 21 card along with the $1 million TVG FFA Championships.
