The Meadowlands wishes to remind horsemen that a number of Meadowlands stakes have sustaining payments due by March 15. However, since the 15th falls on a Saturday this year, payments postmarked by Monday (March 17) will be accepted.
Also, The Meadowlands Pace for foals of 2012 requires a two year old nomination payment of $400 due by March 15 to make those horses eligible to race in the 2015 Pace. This two year old payment will permit a 30% reduction to the sustaining payments required next year at age three to continue eligibility to the Pace.
Please visit The Meadowlands website for forms and further information.
Tioga & Vernon Downs remind horsemen that stakes administered by those tracks have nomination and sustaining payments due by March 15. However, since the 15th falls on a Saturday this year, payments postmarked by Monday (March 17) will be accepted.
Those payments include the Empire Breeders Classic sustaining payments on the foals of 2012 that will race as three year olds this year, nomination payment for this year's two year olds to race in the 2105 edition and stallions that bred mares in New York during the 2012 season to make their foals of 2013 eligible to the 2016 race.
The Kindergarten Trotting Classic for freshman in 2014 and the complete slate of stakes for older horses also have a March 15 nomination.
