The $400,000E Hambletonian Maturity trotting race is scheduled for Saturday, July 18 at The Meadowlands. It is the seventh edition of the race created by the Hambletonian Society and The Meadowlands to provide more racing opportunity for four-year-old trotters.

The Hambletonian Maturity allows for supplemental entries under the following conditions: 

Supplemental entries are due and payable by 8 a.m. on Tuesday, July 14, 2020.

Payment of $50,000 ($42,000 plus the $8,000 entrance fee) must be in certified U.S. Funds and RECEIVED in the Meadowlands Race Office prior to 8 a.m. (local time) on that day along with the supplemental entry. The supplemental check or wire may also be delivered to the Hambletonian Society office before the end of the business day on Monday, July 13. 

All supplemental entrance fees shall be made payable to the Hambletonian Society Inc. All supplemental fees shall be added to the amount of the purse of the specific race.

Entries for eligible Maturity horses are due at the standard entry time of 9:00 a.m. Tuesday, July 14.

If any supplemental entries are received for the Hambletonian Maturity, notice will be disseminated via the Meadowlands text message service.

Like the Hambletonian and Oaks, the Maturity racing conditions prohibit the use of Lasix, the only race day medication permitted in New Jersey, and entrants are subject to out of competition testing. 

The Maturity is raced at a distance of a mile and an eighth and allows for up to 16 starters. If more than 16 enter, the top money-earners in their three and four-year-old seasons are given preference. 

There are 34 eligible trotters: 26 horses and geldings and eight trotting mares.

All starters sixth through last will receive money.
