East Rutherford, NJ - As a result of several complaints that we have received and the fact that the judges are holding a hearing on Friday regarding Jimmy Takter's drive in the Del Miller Memorial where it appeared that he was "blocking" race favorite Designed to Be, The Meadowlands is considering a rule change that would prevent any trainer from driving against a horse that he or she owns part of announced Meadowlands Chairman Jeff Gural today.

No action will be taken until after the hearing and the facts are known. Obviously this has put the Meadowlands in a difficult position and opened us up to criticism by customers who wagered on Designed to Be.
