East Rutherford, NJ - The Meadowlands will have harness racing just two nights this week with the Saturday card a casualty of a NY Jets late afternoon game in Met Life stadium. As a result, we are left with a particularly strong Thursday program featuring ten full fields of what would be the usual Friday fare.
 
The twin features are $15,000 conditioned races for pacing mares (race 6) and trotters (race 7), both competitive blends of veteran performers.
 
Fan favorite Melady's Monet (Dave Miller) will make his return to the races in the seventh coming in off a pair of impressive qualifiers after a five month hiatus. Hermann Heitmann is now training the $1.3 million winner, who is just a few weeks from his 10th birthday, for Melady Enterprises. 
 
"Borrowing Ken's Binoculars" for this Thursday's card is Meadowlands' GM and Little Brown Jug second announcer Jason Settlemoir. He'll be followed by Pete Kleinhans next Thursday with Dave Little closing out the month at the mic.
 
Thursday may also be "Your Lucky Day" with the lead promotion returning gambling losses for the day to one fortunate Players Club member and double points on all live harness wagers.
 
The usual array of guaranteed wagers are in place and free program pages for some of those are available via the world wide web.
 
Post time is 7:15 PM.
