MANALAPAN, NJ - May 28, 2020 - It is extremely important that all New Jersey harness racing horsemen work together during this extraordinary situation that we have been faced with.

Currently, the Meadowlands has received an exceedingly high volume of entries for Saturday's qualifiers. At this time, we would like to ask all trainers that have the ability to qualify at a training center to please do so. We have had great cooperation from the NJRC to allow qualifiers to be held multiple days at Gaitway Farm and Magical Acres for the convenience of all horsemen. Please take advantage of those dates.

Keep in mind that the more horses that qualify at training centers will allow the Meadowlands to limit the number of trainers, drivers, and caretakers on-site at one time, lowering risk factors. It is vital to the future of racing that the Meadowlands is able to adhere to all COVID-19 protocols.

If you have entered horses to qualify on Saturday at the Meadowlands that you are able to qualify on one of the dates allocated to a training center, we ask you to please contact the Meadowlands and take them out of the box.

Preference dates will be the last race date and there will not be a penalty for any qualifying dates.

If you have any questions, please call the SBOANJ office at 732-462-2357. Thank you all for your understanding and cooperation as we move toward the return of live racing in New Jersey.
