EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (January 4, 2018) - Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment is calling all cooks for its 3rd annual Homestyle Chili Cookoff and Salsa challenge to be held Saturday, January 27, 2018. The contest offers a $1,000 first place prize plus a spot in the International Chili Society's World Championship cook-off in Reno, Nevada. There is also a $500 prize for second place and $250 cash prize for the third place chili. Last year's Meadowlands winner, Joseph Callahan, went on to win the 2017 International Chili Society's World Championship for his Homestyle chili and took home the $4,000 prize (photo attached courtesy of Lisa Photo). Racetrack guests are also welcome to sample the chili and vote for their favorite. The fan favorite cook will walk away with the $500 prize. Homestyle chili is defined by the International Chili Society as the cook's favorite combination of ingredients resulting in a dish seasoned with chili peppers and spices. Contestants must cook their chili on site between 3:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. with judging promptly after. "This has become a great event for us during the winter. The number of contestants has grown the last two years and we expect to have a record number of participants this year," said Meadowlands General Manager and COO Jason M. Settlemoir. Cooks, both amateur and professional, are invited to register to participate by visiting the sign-up page at http://playmeadowlands.com/event_detail.aspx?id=13416. There is a $20 registration fee that must be paid prior to the start of cooking that covers the membership fee to the International Chili Society. In addition to the chili competition, a separate side contest for homemade salsa will also be conducted offering the winner a $500 first prize.

Harness racing post time for the Meadowlands will move to 6:35 P.M. starting this Friday, December 22nd and continue through February 24, 2018. "Our entry box is over flowing and to accommodate the horsemen we are going to move post time to 6:35pm," said General Manager & COO, Jason Settlemoir. "We will card ten races next Thursday, December 28th and will be carding fourteen races on Friday and Saturday nights, which gives the horsemen additional opportunities to race their horses through the winter." There are also a few changes to the wagering format starting on Friday, December 22. The Survivor Wager which begins in Race 1 will no longer carry a $10,000 guarantee. "The Survivor Wager is well above the guarantee and we now believe we can do better," Settlemoir noted. "The Survivor Wager just last week on Friday handled $ 18,157 and on Saturday handled $ 19,533. We want to give the Survivor Wager a chance as we think it is a fun bet and we believe over time it can attract more interest in our racing product. However, having said that, it appears that the Survivor Wager has negatively impacted some of our other pools. Therefore we are going to try, as an experiment, making some changes to our wagering format. These changes should drive some additional handle and incremental dollars to benefit the customer and horsemen." The Early Pick 4 will be removed from the wagering format which will allow the focus to return to the Late Pick 4 and allow the pool for this wager to increase. The final change will move the Super High Five wager from Race 5 to the second leg of the Late Pick 4 each night. Updated post time schedules and wagering formats can be found at PlayMeadowlands.com.

It will be a battle to the finish for cash and free seats to the 2018 World Harness Handicapping Championship presented by DerbyWars.com in Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment's Winter Survival Challenge powered by 123Racing, an online handicapping competition that begins Saturday, November 4. Entries for Saturday along with Trackmaster Platinum Past Performances will be available each live racing night. The game covers the Meadowlands' Fall/Winter meet opening on Saturday, November 4, 2017 and runs through Saturday, March 31, 2018. The winner is determined by the highest total bankroll at the end of the Challenge based on a $2 "across the board" wager [win, place and show] on selections for three designated races each program. However, to continue in the game, entrants have to "survive" by finishing in-the-money [first through third] with at least one of their selections each day. Failing to do so or not making selections knocks the player out of the game. To aid in the player's survival two "lucky horseshoes" are given. The lucky horseshoe is a "free pass" given to all Challenge participants that allows the player to survive if he does not make selections for a race card or all three of his selections fail to hit the board. The top three survival challenge finishers receive seats to the 2018 World Harness Handicapping Championship presented by DerbyWars.com. The WHHC presented by DerbyWars.com will be held at the Meadowlands Racetrack on Saturday, April 28, 2018.

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (October 4, 2017) - Thoroughbreds won't be the only horses harness racing fans will come out to see on Saturday, October 7 at Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment.

There’s only one thing every racehorse owner has in common: they started as a fan.  As thousands assemble for the 92nd Hambletonian, the Meadowlands is eager to show interested fans that the path to harness racing ownership isn’t restricted to the wealthy. “One of the great barriers to ownership is the perception that it’s for the rich,” said Jason Settlemoir, General Manager & CEO of The Meadowlands.  “Anthony MacDonald has been gaining some real steam in with an innovative ownership concept, so we thought we’d allow him to share his experience as part of Hambletonian weekend.” MacDonald will be on hand Saturday morning to discuss his fractional ownership website, TheStable.ca, with prospective owners and horsemen interested in duplicating his approach.  In less than one year, MacDonald’s fledgling operation has attracted 279 clients from across the globe, many testing ownership waters for the first time.  The seminar will take place in The Gallery on the second floor of the Meadowlands Grandstand 10:30 - 11:30 a.m.  The seminar is free to attend.  “In all honesty, the response to our platform has been overwhelming,” said MacDonald.  “My wife and I started TheStable.ca to sell percentages of horses.  What we quickly discovered is that we’re selling an experience and when packaged right, there’s no end of consumers.  We’re equal parts social network, investment, family farm and sport of kings.”   TheStable.ca markets horses of all ages, but mostly yearlings, to clients in increments as low as 1%.  Owners receive weekly video updates on their horses and stay connected through social networks and training events at The Stable’s base of operations in Campbellville, Ontario.   “The lifeblood of the industry is owners.  No owners, no horses.  No horses, no anything,” said MacDonald.  “We make ownership fun, accessible and stress-free.  We didn’t start TheStable.ca to be a revolutionary change agent, but we’re seeing its potential – and not just for our operation.  For trainers that want to understand our recipe, we’re happy to share.”The Meadowlands will host an interactive conversation with MacDonald at the gallery on the second floor of the new Meadowlands .  Former Trot Magazine editor and racetrack executive, Chris Roberts, will moderate the discussion and take questions from the audience.  The seminar is open to both prospective owners and horsemen. “You can’t argue with Anthony’s early results,” added Settlemoir.  “Anyone that can create hundreds of new owners inside of a year is doing something innovative.  And, the Meadowlands supports any initiative that grows our fan base or generates new interest from the general public.” Rachel Ryan
