The Meadowlands
East Rutherford, NJ - The Meadowlands is pleased to announce that Governor Murphy has granted harness racing the opportunity to resume in the state of New Jersey. Our thanks go out to the Governor for allowing all of us to get back to business.
 
Live racing will return to The Meadowlands next weekend Friday, June 5 and Saturday, June 6 at 7:15 PM with no live attendance. We ask that our fans and those involved with the horses as owners and in any capacity other than those essential to the function of racing be patient as we are hopeful that with careful management and Jersey remaining healthy we will be able to open the grandstand before too long.
 
Qualifiers will be held on Saturday morning. Pertinent information was released earlier today on important practices and protocols for racing. Further details including the draw for Saturday's qualifying races will be released as they become know later today.
 
With the green light to race we may now release the live racing calendar for the balance of 2020 which may be found on The Meadowlands website later this afternoon.
 
Also posted will be the revised stakes schedule which will remain virtually in tact. The stakes will begin with the New Jersey Sires Stakes (NJSS) for 3-year-olds on and the first leg of the Miss Versatility on Friday, June 19. The calendar may still be fluid as changes are made at other tracks regarding their intentions but any move would likely be only from Friday to Saturday.
 
While we are all pleased and grateful to be back racing, we must remain vigilant so far as following the protocols required of us all as long as they are in place.
 
Good luck and good racing to everyone.
 
Nick Salvi
