Omar Acosta-Cabrera of Hackensack, New Jersey, walked away with a 2019 Toyota C-HR as the grand prize winner of Meadowlands Racetrack's Championship Meet Horseplay promotion.

From Friday, May 3rd through August 2nd, Horseplay participants attempted to throw their numbered horse into the window of a moving car. A winner, randomly chosen from all the horses that make it into the car, received a $100 betting voucher. Each night's winner was entered into a grand prize drawing to win the brand new 2019 Toyota C-HR on, Friday, August 2nd.

Cabrera, who comes to the track every Friday night during the summer was ecstatic to win the Toyota C-HR.

"This is so awesome," Cabrera exclaimed after his name was drawn. "I was looking for a new car so this came at the perfect time!"

For every horse that made it into the Horseplay car, Meadowlands Racetrack donated $10 to the designated monthly charity. For the 2019 season, a total of $8,020 was donated to three local charities.

The May donation recipient was A Lot to Grow: https://www.alottogrow.org/index.html 

The June donation recipient was Humane Society of Bergen County Lost Pet, Inc: http://www.humanesocietybergen.org/

The July/August donation recipient was Horse Rescue United - http://horserescueunited.org/

Since 2015 Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment has donated over $34,000 to local charities through Horseplay.
