EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (June 1, 2016) - In its continuing effort to attract younger harness racing fans to the racetrack and engage them in playing the races, the Meadowlands Racetrack is offering a free handicapping contest exclusively for fans age 30 and under. The contest will take place Friday, June 3 and offers a $5,000 total prize pool, sponsored by Jeff and Paula Gural's Allerage Farms.

Last year's inaugural 30-and-under contest featured a field of 52 competitors.

"It is essential that we reach out to a younger audience in the harness racing industry," said Meadowlands Chairman Jeff Gural. "The average age of our customers as a whole continues to grow older. That is a big problem. At The Meadowlands we are in the unique position of attracting a younger audience with many of the amenities we offer including our rooftop terrace, Victory Sports Bar, and our full schedule of special events."

Fans may register up until 7:00 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 - 11 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.
