East Rutherford, NJ - The Meadowlands is announcing date changes for the upcoming fall-winter meet, pending New Jersey Racing Commission regulatory approval.
Due to the cancelation of Thoroughbred dates originally scheduled by Monmouth Park to be raced at The Meadowlands, live harness racing will begin on Saturday, November 4 and continue each of the succeeding Saturdays in November, the 11th, 18th and 25th.
There will be no live racing on the originally scheduled dates of Friday, November 17th and 24th.
This development will result in a few changes to stakes schedules.
The Kindergarten Classic Finals will now be raced at The Meadowlands on Saturday, November 4th.
The Valley Victory and Goldsmith Maid elimination races will be moved to Saturday, November 18th.
The above changes have been approved by SBOA of NJ President Mark Ford.
"With Monmouth dropping several dates at The Meadowlands this fall, we felt it necessary to adjust our live schedule to have racing on Breeders Cup Saturday (November 4). The Kindergarten finals will fit their nicely and we realize that horsemen generally would prefer to race an important stake like that over our mile racetrack," said Meadowlands GM Jason Settlemoir. "We appreciate Mark Ford and the SBOA of NJ cooperating with this request."
The adjusted schedule will be available on The Meadowlands website
