MANALAPAN, NJ -- May 16, 2018 -- Mark Ford, President of The Standardbred Breeders and Owners Association of New Jersey released the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that New Jersey can implement legalized sports betting:  “Monday’s U.S. Supreme Court decision regarding the state’s rights to permit sports betting is important to New Jersey’s harness racing industry. We thank all of those who pursued this lengthy litigation, which was designed to help the state’s horse racing and casino industries. “The Standardbred breeding and racing industry has a long and important history in New Jersey and has been a vital part of the state’s economy, maintaining farms and open spaces and providing jobs. We believe that a fair division of profits from sports betting can benefit the state and our industry, and that this new addition to the gambling menu can have a positive impact on the handle on harness races.” “We look forward to working with the state of New Jersey, legislators, and horse racing leadership, to ensure that sports betting is a plus for New Jersey’s horse racing industry.” Courtney Stafford

East Rutherford, NJ - After a long campaign by New Jersey interests to legalize betting on sporting events, the United States Supreme Court today handed down an historic decision on the case of Murphy, et al. v. National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), et al. to strike down a 25-year old federal law known as the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) that had prohibited sports betting outside the state of Nevada. Leading the way through the nearly seven year battle has been Dennis Drazin, CEO of Darby Development, LLC which operates Monmouth Park, along with the New Jersey Thoroughbred Horseman's Association. The New Meadowlands Racetrack contributed by funding half the cost of the Monmouth horsemen's legal fees. New Meadowlands President & CEO Jeff Gural had this to say in recognition of the landmark decision; "I'd like to thank Dennis Drazin, who has been at the forefront of this initiative on behalf of the horse industry throughout, for his hard work and dedication. I look forward to continuing to work with the thoroughbred horsemen, whom I expect will apply for an increase in the number thoroughbred race dates at The Meadowlands next fall." New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy released this statement on the SCOTUS decision; "I am thrilled to see the Supreme Court finally side with New Jersey and strike down the arbitrary ban on sports betting imposed by Congress decades ago. "New Jersey has long been the lead advocate in fighting this inherently unequal law, and today's ruling will finally allow for authorized facilities in New Jersey to take the same bets that are legal in other states. "Today's victory would not have been possible without the incredible bipartisan effort from so many in our state, particularly former Governor Chris Christie and former State Senator Raymond Lesniak. I look forward to working with the Legislature to enact a law authorizing and regulating sports betting in the very near future." The decision will allow The Meadowlands to take wagers on sporting events as regulated and taxed by the state thus creating a new revenue stream for New Jersey as well as sorely needed funding for operation of the track. Unfortunately, this does not solve the significant problem of the current horse shortage at The Meadowlands given the purse subsidies racetracks in the surrounding states receive from slots revenue. Illegal, unsanctioned sports betting is reported to total approximately $400 billion annually with a substantial percentage of that total being wagered in the state of New Jersey. State-regulated sports betting will provide the wagering customer a safe, secure platform upon which to place their bets as well as creating a significant number of new jobs to service the industry. The revenue generated by legal sports wagering is vital to the survival of New Jersey's horse race tracks and agribusiness which is reported to be a $4 billion industry and continue to preserve the 176,000 acres used for agriculture in the state. New Jersey legislators have indicated they will immediately begin to craft the necessary rules and regulations necessary for a timely beginning to sports wagering in the state. Nick Salvi

MANALAPAN, NJ -- May 14, 2018 -- The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Monday that states can legalize sports betting, breaking up Nevada's monopoly on the practice. The court upheld the legality of a 2014 New Jersey law permitting sports betting at casinos and racetracks in the state and voided the federal Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act. Some states see sports betting, like lotteries, as a potentially important source of tax revenue. The Supreme Court justices struck down the entire federal law on a 6-3 vote. "The legalization of sports gambling requires an important policy choice, but the choice is not ours to make. Congress can regulate sports gambling directly, but if it elects not to do so, each state is free to act on its own," Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the majority opinion. The state law at issue would allow people age 21 and above to bet on sports at New Jersey casinos and racetracks but would ban wagers on college teams based in or playing in the state. Shares of several casino companies moved higher following the ruling, including Caesars Entertainment, up 6 percent and Penn National Gaming, up 4 percent. Others gaining included MGM Resorts, Boyd Gaming and Churchill Downs. Wynn Resorts stock recaptured some of its losses from earlier in trading, down 1.9 percent on the day. Industry analysts have said that dozens of states might legalize sports betting if they are not barred from doing so by the federal law. While awaiting Monday's ruling, seven states — Connecticut, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Iowa, New York, Mississippi and West Virginia — had laws prepared to make sports betting legal. Thirteen other states — California, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Michigan, Missouri, Oklahoma, Rhode Island and South Carolina — have plans or proposals to consider legalizing sports betting. The ruling takes the U.S. a step closer to legal sports betting in numerous states, possibly even nationwide. Currently, the practice is legal only in select places such as Nevada, home to the gambling capital Las Vegas. The current illegal sports betting market is worth billions of dollars annually.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – It was not the smoothest of trips, but it didn’t matter one bit to Inverse Hanover, who toyed with a half-dozen overmatched opponents in the Friday night feature at the Meadowlands, a $17,500 conditioned pace for fillies and mares. The 4-year-old daughter of Somebeachsomewhere clearly benefited from her tightener over the track one week ago – a superb speed try where she was gunned down at the wire – and set sail for the lead, but with three leavers to her inside, Brett Miller had to ease off the gas just a bit before pushing down on the throttle again while parked to surge to the top at the three-eighths. After hitting the half in :54.2, the Ed Hart trainee just kept on rolling, reaching three-quarters in 1:22.1 as longshot Best Of Jenna was towing 2-1 second choice Penpal into contention. But Inverse Hanover still had more. The 4-5 public choice sprinted her final quarter in :27.1 – as Penpal came up empty racing three wide into the stretch, finishing sixth – and went on to a 1¼-length score in 1:49.2, lowering her previous lifetime best by two-and-two-fifth seconds. Clear Idea was second with Keystone Riptide third. Inverse Hanover, who paid $3.60 to win, has now won six of eight starts this year for owners Thomas Pollack and Jeffrey Cullipher. Lifetime, she’s now 11-for-28 with earnings of just over $196,000. A LITTLE MORE: Wagering on the track’s signature Pick-4 bet remained strong. For a third straight program, the pool exceeded $100,000 when $113,837 was poured into the pot. … The Early 20-Cent Jackpot Super High-Five – which had a 14-1 shot and an 18-1 chance finish 1-2 – returned $9,833.00. The jackpot paid out two tickets due to a dead heat for third… The Late 20-Cent Jackpot Super High-Five failed to result in a single-ticket winner, bloating the carryover to $211,753. … All-source wagering on the nine-race program totaled $2,107,047. … Racing resumes Saturday at 7:15 p.m. Defending Horse of the Year Hannelore Hanover makes her seasonal debut leaving from post 12 in the feature, the $182,500 Cutler Memorial for trotters. ... Gates open at the Big M at 9:30 a.m. for Kentucky Derby Day. Post time at Churchill Downs is 10:30 a.m. The Derby is set to go at 6:50 p.m.   Dave Little

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - It was another big Saturday night at the Meadowlands, as for the third time this year, harness racing wagering surpassed the magic $3 million mark at the industry's handle leader. Betting was consistent throughout the 12-race card, with only one race failing to reach the $200,000 mark. The third race saw the biggest pool of the night, $319,684, while the eighth was a close second, at $318,041. The total handle for the card was $3,036,706, which works out to an average of $253,058 per race. The other two $3 million nights came on March 3, when betting was a 2018-high $3.45 million, and on March 24, when $3.08 million was pushed through the windows. BURKE THE BIG MAN: Ron Burke was the big man on campus for the night, training four winners on the program, including two victories in pacing series action. Burke's Windsong Leo was the recipient of a perfect pocket trip from driver Jim Marohn Jr. on the way to taking the first leg of the Whata Baron for horses and geldings who are non-winners of six races. The 6-year-old gelded son of Jereme's Jet won by three-quarters of a length over Barimah A, completed the mile in a lifetime-best 1:50.2 and paid $5.00 to win as the public choice. Betterhaveanother ($4.80 as the second choice) scored for Burke in the second division of the first leg of the Burning Point for fillies and mares (also NW of 6) with Brett Miller at the controls. The 6-year-old daughter of Bettor's Delight held off 6-5 favorite Valuable Art by a head in 1:51.3. Apple Bottom Jeans ($5.20 as the second choice) took the opening division of the Burning Point with Delaware regular Victor Kirby driving. The 5-year-old daughter of Mr Apples, trained by Kevin Switzer, was 2½ lengths clear of Stormtracker at the finish in a lifetime-best equaling 1:50.3. Even-money choice Windsun Glory was fourth. A LITTLE MORE: When Rockinwiththebest scored in the third race at odds of 33-1, the stage was set for a giant 50-Cent Pick-5 payoff. The bet spans races 3 through 7, and when the dust cleared, those holding winning tickets walked away with a cool $21,359.40. ... Leading driver Marohn and Andrew McCarthy both drove three winners on the card. ... Racing resumes at the Big M Friday at 7:15 p.m. Stuckey & Murphy Qualify for the $75,000 World Harness Handicapping Championship The last two qualifying spots for the $75,000 World Harness Handicapping Championship were awarded to Lee Stuckey of Newark, NJ and John Murphy of East Lyme, CT in Saturday’s Last Chance Qualifier.  The format required players to place a minimum of 5 $10 Win wagers on Meadowlands races.  64 players have already qualified for the WHHC Final through the Meadowlands, DerbyWars.com and partner outlets: Vernon Downs, Tioga Downs, TROT Fantasy, Buffalo Raceway.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The king has regained his crown. The hard-hitting Western Joe reigned supreme once again at the Meadowlands, winning the Saturday night harness racing feature - the $20,000 Preferred Handicap for pacers - for a fifth time in eight tries this year. The 4-year-old son of Western Ideal scored some revenge over arch-rival Bettor's Edge, who gunned down Western Joe at the wire when the pair squared off last week. This time around, things started out pretty much the same way as they did that night. Western Joe went right to the top. Bettor's Edge, the back. Western Joe cut out fractions of :27.1, :56.3 and 1:24.3 (middle half of :57.2) while Bettor's Edge set sail after the leader from last in the six-horse field, following the cover of Statham N, down the backside. As they straightened away with three-sixteenths to go, Western Joe had plenty left in the tank, but so did Bettor's Edge, who tipped off his cover and was closing ground while pacing his final quarter in :25.2. But Western Joe had more than enough to keep his foe at bay, winning by three-quarters of a length in 1:50.1. Bettor's Edge was second, giving him seven on-the-board finishes in nine starts in the Preferred ranks. The pocket-sitting Durant finished third. "I still think my horse gets a little lonely on the lead," said winning trainer Chris Choate. "But you can't always race covered up, so the front end was the place to be. If you can get a head start on Bettor's Edge, it's a good thing, because he raced huge tonight." Western Joe paid $3.00 to win as the 1-2 public choice and was driven by Jim Marohn Jr. for owner Anthony Ruggeri. He's now won six of nine this year and 15 of 38 overall, good for a lifetime bankroll of $231,548. A LITTLE MORE: The 20-Cent Survivor Pick-10 pool was extremely popular as wagering reached a 2018-high $24,145. When the dust cleared, one lucky bettor wagering into the Twin Spires hub was the only ticket holder to survive six legs, and they cashed in for $20,522. ... Leading driver Marohn and Andrew McCarthy each had three winners on the card. Victor Kirby had two, giving him five victories over the last two Saturdays. ... All-source wagering totaled $2,454,142. ... The Late 20-Cent Jackpot Super High-Five failed to result in a single-ticket winner, bloating the carryover to $172,812. ... Racing resumes at the Big M Friday at 7:15 p.m. By Dave Little, Meadowlands Media Relations

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The action on the Meadowlands' signature Pick-4 wager remains strong, as during March the total pool has averaged $84,593 through the first five harness racing programs of the month. The bet, which has a 50-cent base and low 15 percent takeout, can reward favorites players and those who like value alike. On March 9, no public choices won during the sequence, leading to a payoff of $4,131, while on March 17, three chalks and a 3-1 chance combined to create a winning payout of $76.65. Free program pages for the Pick-4 (Races 8 through 11), courtesy of Track Master, are available on the Meadowlands' website (www.playmeadowlands.com) and on the handicapping section at www.ustrotting.com. The Pick-5 (Races 3 through 7) has seen total action of at least $47,475 on four occasions during the month, and on March 9, even though favorites won the final three legs of the bet, the return was a hefty $4,429. CRAZY CARRYOVER: The carryover for the Late 20-Cent Jackpot Super High Five, which will be offered on Race 11 Friday, is now at an industry-high $148,306. For one to rake the pot, the bet requires he or she be the only ticket holder with the winning combination. NEW POST TIME: Effective Friday, post time at the Meadowlands moves back to the traditional 7:15 p.m. 3-POINTERS AND TRIFECTAS: Catch all of college basketball's "March Madness" in the Big M's Victory sports bar on its massive HDTVs.

East Rutherford, NJ - The Meadowlands rebounds from the disappointment of Friday's weather-induced cancellation of live racing with a 13 race card tonight.   The Pick 5 carry over of $30,000 complete with the guaranteed pool of $125,000 will be offered on Saturday's races 3-7.   The racing feature is the seventh race $20,000 Preferred where the winter meet's top pacer thus far, Western Joe, takes on six rivals led by Dr J Hanover who is making his seasonal bow.   Western Joe has taken the class twice consecutively and won 4 of his 5 2018 starts for the owner/trainer combo of Anthony Ruggeri and Chris Choate. Pat Berry has been the pilot for the past pair, including last week's score in a snappy 1:50 flat.   Dr J Hanover had a solid 4-year-old campaign highlighted by his all time Canadian record of 1:46.4. He's had pair of good qualifiers in anticipation of this start and a season filled with stakes engagements. Tony Alagna trains Dr J for Brad Grant, Robert LeBlanc, Steve Wienick and Irv Samelman and Brett Miller is listed to drive.   Another World Harness Handicapping Contest qualifier will be offered on Saturday with four to advance to the April 28 final.   Post time is 6:35 pm.   Nick Salvi
