This Saturday, June 1st is millennial night at Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment. Continuing efforts to attract the younger demographic, the Meadowlands is hosting a 30 & Under Handicapping Contest and a $10,000 Scholarship Sweepstakes both sponsored by Jeff and Paula Gural's Allerage Farms.

The free handicapping contest is exclusively for harness racing fans between the ages of 18 and 30. The contest offers a $5,000 total prize pool, with prize payouts to the top five finishers.

"We have seen an increase in participation over the years and we believe the trend will continue this year," said Jason Settlemoir, COO and GM of Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment. "Younger people need to get involved in racing and we feel that the amenities we offer including Victory Terrace and our full summer events schedule attract that younger audience."

Fans may register up until 7 p.m. on the night of the contest. There is no entry fee. The contest format requires players to make a mythical $2 "across the board" wager on one horse in races 2 - 9 at the Meadowlands. The winner is determined by the player that amasses the largest mythical bankroll from their selections.

All contest participants will also be treated to free hot dogs, hamburgers and other grill items plus soft drinks and water on Victory Terrace, the popular rooftop area at the Meadowlands.

The Meadowlands will also be giving away ten $1,000 college scholarships on Saturday. Anyone currently enrolled at a college or university full-time may enter the drawing. Students looking to enter must show their college ID at the Players Club Desk to receive the entry form. In addition they will also receive a free $5 bet and a live racing program. Ten winners will be selected after Race 5.
