Activities will include a Roosevelt driver autograph session with, Carmine Abbatiello, Ben Webster, Lucien Fontaine, Merritt Dokey and many other top Roosevelt drivers. Some great memorabilia will be on display compliments of the Harness Racing Museum, a race with current Meadowlands drivers wearing the silks of former Roosevelt regulars, special interviews, video clips of old races, trophy presentations, and much more.
In addition, The Meadowlands will turn back the clock on some of its food and beverage offerings, with pricing from the days of Roosevelt Raceway. There will be $1 Budweiser and Bud Light Drafts, $1 Canned Sodas, $1 Hot Dogs and $1 Pretzels.
On the racing front, the first major Free For All Trotting event of the season headlines the racing action as some of the best trotters in the world do battle in The Arthur J. Cutler Memorial.
