EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (May 3, 2017) - The Meadowlands Racetrack today announced an expansion of its relationship with Sweden's national tote provider, ATG. As part of the expanded relationship, Sweden's ATG will offer full-card harness racing wagering through separate pools on Saturday's Meadowlands card headlined by the $200,000 Arthur J. Cutler Memorial for free-for-all trotters. "This is a very positive step towards expanding the Meadowlands wagering brand to a passionate, international fanbase in Sweden," said Meadowlands GM/COO Jason Settlemoir. "We are thrilled to work with the ATG and although it will be the middle of the night in Sweden when our races are run, we still expect there to be some high interest in the signal." "We are really pleased to have a partnership with the Meadowlands around the Arthur J. Cutler Memorial," said Lars Nemeth, Head of International Sales at ATG. "For the first time ever our customers can see and bet on races in the middle of the night Swedish Time. This is a perfect day with great racing. We have had a partnership around the Hambletonian for many years thanks to Sam McKee, so for us, this is a way to carry on his legacy." The winner of the Cutler Memorial will be invited to race in the prestigious Elitloppet in Sweden on May 28. Last year's Cutler winner, Resolve, trained and driven by Swede Ake Svanstedt, finished second in the Elitloppet and looks to defend his Cutler crown in this year's event. ATG will continue to take the Hambletonian Day card and there is hope that more live programs from the Meadowlands can be shown in Sweden throughout the season with the ultimate goal being to commingle wagers from Sweden into the North American pools.

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (April 29, 2017) - Horseplayers were salivating at the prospects of chasing a rare Pick Four carryover entering Saturday's harness racing program at the Meadowlands. The first such carryover since December of nearly $62,000 attracted more than $226,000 in new money to comprise a total pool of $288,482. Players looking to lean on a favorite were disappointed as the chalk went 0 for 4. Second-choice Sam Hill kicked off the Pick Four, winning a narrow photo over favored JK Will Power to pay $8.20. Four-year-old stakes horses prepping for next week's Graduate Series Pace took center stage in Race 8.

Down Under import Quick Asa Trick made his North American debut a winning one for fellow Down Under imports Darran Cassar and Andrew McCarthy. The $13.60 mutuel set the stage for the payoff leg. 9-1 chance Dustlanemissmolly went right to the front for Joe Bongiorno and held off the late charge of 6-5 favorite Phyllis Jean to close out the sequence.

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (April 28, 2017) - Longshots stole the show during the Late Pick Four on Friday at the Meadowlands, triggering a massive $61,958 carryover into Saturday's harness racing program. Friday's Late Pick Four attracted a total pool of $97,193, the second largest pool of the year. Rock of Cashel set the tone when he upset an all-star cast of trotters in the $20,000 Preferred Trot including JL Cruze, Rubber Duck, Rose Run Parker, and Maestro Blue Chip, all of whom are eligible to next week's $200,000 Arthur J. Cutler Memorial. Opulent Yankee took his customary spot on the front through fractions of :26.4, :55.3 and 1:23.4. Into the stretch, Opulent Yankee still held a two-length lead and looked home, but Corey Callahan had the 26-1 Rock of Cashel rolling and just prevailed by a nose in 1:51.3. JL Cruze was third in his seasonal debut. "He is such a nice little horse," said Callahan. "He has a good move and it worked out perfectly for him tonight." The longshot parade continued in the next race when Up The Alley, a stakes-nominated trotter making his second start of the year for trainer Richie Silverman, surged past 2-5 favorite B Yoyo in deep stretch to score at 28-1. After Sudden Change scored a $17.60 upset in the ninth race, the stage was set for a possible carryover or a huge score for the few horseplayers still alive. In the end, Anthony Napolitano aggressively put Lauderdale on the front end from his outside post and took the field gate to wire to win at $24.60 and trigger the first Pick Four carryover of the season at the Meadowlands. With the large carryover and low 15-percent takeout, the effective takeout for horseplayers will be negative with up to $413,053 in new money wagered. The Late Pick Four covers Races 7 - 10 and free past performances are available courtesy of TrackMaster on the Meadowlands website http://bit.ly/2oRtwIU. The Pick Four fireworks only set the stage for the final race of the evening. Co-favorites Joyful Game and Rock Me Gently both finished out of the top five. That allowed one lucky player to take down the Jackpot Super High Five for $51,321. The winning combination of 4-1-8-7-2 included 10-1 winner Amanderosa followed in order by 7-2 Blush Hanover, 28-1 Twice An Angel, 11-1 Keene Olivia, and 32-1 Mac's Secure in fifth.

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (April 27, 2017) - The award-winning Meadowlands Racetrack television broadcast will have a decidedly different look when the harness racing championship meet begins on May 5. Former Meadowlands handicapper and television host Dave Brower is rejoining the Big M television team after six years away. Brower grew up five minutes from the Meadowlands in nearby Passaic. He previously served as the track's morning line oddsmaker, handicapper, and broadcaster for 16 years from 1987 to 2011. He has also co-hosted CBS Sports Network's coverage of The Hambletonian, Meadowlands Pace, and Little Brown Jug with Hall of Famer Gary Seibel and his new co-host at the Meadowlands, Justin Horowitz. "I think it'll be great to be back at the Meadowlands after a long six years since I left," said Brower. "The timing is right for a return, and with the Championship Meet coming up, and the chance to work with my good friends Ken Warkentin, Bob Heyden, Justin Horowitz and all the good folks in the TV Department again, I think it's a good fit for everybody. I hope we'll bring a new and vibrant approach to what is already an exciting stakes season leading up to the Hambletonian. I am very much looking forward to it, and I would like to thank Jeff Gural and Jason Settlemoir for this new opportunity." Brower will be joined by a new face to the Meadowlands. Gabe Prewitt, 33, will also join the broadcast team. The Kentucky native has been the announcer at Pompano Park in South Florida since 2013 and added the role of Director of Racing Operations in 2016.

"I look forward to contributing in any way that I can, and am thankful and excited for the opportunity." Brower will also return to his previous role of morning line oddsmaker and program handicapper. He will officially begin on Friday, May 5, opening night of the Championship Meet, while Prewitt will begin on June 2 after the South Florida season concludes.

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (April 25, 2017) - The US Pacing Championship, long one of the signature harness racing events on Hambletonian Day, will be renamed The Sam McKee Memorial beginning this August in honor of the track's Hall of Fame announcer and broadcaster who passed away March 8 at the age of 54. The Meadowlands will also attach McKee's name to its broadcast center that McKee designed when the new grandstand opened in 2013. It will now be called The Sam McKee SNY Broadcast Center. The official dedication is scheduled for August 4, the night before the Hambletonian. "Sam was a true professional at his job as evidenced by his Hall of Fame status, but his larger than life smile, and gracious attitude is what made him stand tall among his peers," said Jason Settlemoir, Meadowlands GM/COO. "Honoring Sam's legacy with one of our major races only seems fitting and honoring him with the dedication of the SNY Broadcast Center that he worked very hard to put together in the new building only seems fitting as well." "Sam would never believed himself to be worthy of this, but we know that he would be honored," said Sam's wife, Chris McKee. "Hambletonian Day was always so important to him. It's always a special day and he worked tirelessly along with the rest of the staff to prepare for it and make sure things went smoothly. We're so proud of Sam and all of his accomplishments and are once again humbled by this memorial race. We're grateful to have been at the Meadowlands for last year's Hambo where we got to see Sam interview one of his favorite NASCAR drivers. While it will never be the same, we look forward to being there on Hambo Day to support the sport that he loved so dearly and to keep his memory alive." This year's $225,000 Sam McKee Memorial is August 5 as part of the super stakes Hambletonian Day program. The US Pacing Championship was first held in 1982 and has been won by such legends as Cam Fella, Matt's Scooter, and Artsplace and in more recent years, Won The West, Sweet Lou, and last year in an upset by Shamballa over Horses of the Year Wiggle It Jiggleit and Always B Miki.

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (April 22, 2017) - The Meadowlands winner's circle was painted orange on Saturday night as Andy Miller swept the co-featured upper level paces en route to a four-win night during the 11-race harness racing program. Miller scored in the $18,000 conditioned pace with the red-hot Special T Rocks by a head in 1:50.4 over the narrow 2-1 favorite Alberto Contador. That came two races after Miller prevailed in a three-way finish with Artful Way, who shipped down from Saratoga for the victory in the co-featured $18,000 event. In between those races, Iwillmakeyousaywow lived up to his name by surviving brutal fractions of :26.4, :53.4, and 1:21.4 to win the $17,500 Dash For The G-Notes Final from post 10. The biggest fireworks of the night came in Race 10 when Pat Lachance steered 13-year-old Semalu Express to a last-to-first win at 111-1 odds. He was followed by fellow 13-year-old Stormin Rustler, who was 95-1. The lucky $2 exacta returned $5,231.60 while the $2 trifecta with 6-5 favorite Camturo Beach came back $25,279.20.

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (April 21, 2017) - Tuonoblu Rex, the American-sired, Italian-bred, and Dutch-trained son of Cantab Hall, entered Friday's $20,000 Preferred Trot at the Meadowlands with a healthy amount of hype following an eye-catching qualifying win in his first harness racing appearance on Big M soil two weeks ago. After grinding past millionaire Crazy Wow with a :27 second final quarter to win in 1:52.1 in his North American parimutuel debut, the bandwagon might need some more seats. "T-Rex" sat third as Crazy Wow showed the field through fractions of :27.4, :56.2 and 1:24.4 for three-quarters while Opulent Yankee chased from the pocket. Around the final turn, Andy Miller launched the 5-year-old, who earned nearly $200,000 during his 14-race European career, first-over after the 3-5 favorite Crazy Wow. The two trotters battled down the stretch, but "T-Rex" had enough late to win as the 2-1 second choice. "We were very pleased with him," said trainer Julie Miller. "He definitely met our expectations tonight. Andy said he was perfect to drive. He has trained down great since arriving in the U.S." Tuonoblu Rex is owned by Cees J. Faber's Stable Why Not. He is eligible to the Arthur J. Cutler Memorial at the Meadowlands on May 6 as well as the Cashman Memorial and TVG Free For All Series. Tuonoblu Rex In the $18,000 pacing mare feature, Breeders Crown champion Call Me Queen Be settled for second in her 4-year-old debut behind the sharp Inittowinafortune. The 3-5 favorite Penpal disappointed with a late-closing, but non-threatening third place finish. Hall of Famer John Campbell won three races for the second straight Friday night. Corey Callahan also won three. Total handle was $2,502,644 for the 11-race card. Racing resumes Saturday. Post time is 7:15 p.m. For more information, visit www.playmeadowlands.com. Justin Horowitz

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (April 15, 2017) - Since adding Lasix on April 1, Rodeo Romeo has taken his already considerable talent to a harness racing career-best level.

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (April 14, 2017) - Prairie Sweetheart, the Florida-sired super harness racing mare, entered her four-year-old and Meadowlands debut with a perfect 14-for-14 career mark. But then she ran into a fellow 4-year-old who was sitting on a monster race. Windsun Glory converted a perfect second-over trip into a jaw-dropping :25.4 final quarter to defeat Inittowinafortune and the pace-setting Prairie Sweetheart in the $18,000 Meadowlands feature on Friday. The final time was 1:51.2. John Campbell moved Prairie Sweetheart to the front after a :27.1 first quarter. The Ross Croghan-trained daughter of Royal Millenium continued to lead through a half mile in :56.1 and three-quarters in 1:24.4.

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (April 8, 2017) - Alberto Contador took the worst of it with a parked out journey, but the classy harness racing 9-year-old survived to win Saturday's $20,000 featured pace at the Meadowlands over the razor-sharp City Hall. Bullet Bob left the gate fastest and led the field of eight through an opening quarter in :27.1 before City Hall moved to the lead. Down the backstretch, Corey Callahan sent Alberto Contador on a brush towards the lead, but could not clear City Hall, who had won three of his last four starts. The duo continued their cutthroat battle through a half mile in :55 and three-quarters in 1:23. Just when it appeared that Alberto Contador would wilt from the long journey, he found more and gutted out a head victory over City Hall in 1:50.4. 2/1 favorite Rodeo Romeo rallied to be third by a neck. The win was Alberto Contador's fourth of the year and 35th lifetime for trainer Darran Cassar and Windermere Stable.

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (April 7, 2017) - Forgotten on the tote board in a talented and deep field, J A T O scored a 25/1 harness racing upset in the $20,000 featured trot at the Meadowlands on Friday night. J A T O, the former two-time New York County Fair Sire Stake champion, has blossomed into a high-level trotter in the barn of leading trainer Ron Burke. Favored Melady's Monet moved to the front from his outside post position before a half mile in :56. Meanwhile, Anthony Napolitano, who is expected to become a Friday night regular in the Meadowlands driving colony, had J A T O perfectly positioned in a second-over trip following Crosbys Clam Bake. Past three-quarters in 1:25.1, Napolitano tipped J A T O three wide and grinded by Melady's Monet in deep stretch to win by a neck in 1:54.1. B Yoyo rallied for third with Muscle Diamond fourth.

The stakes-placed 4-year-old mare settled in last for the first half mile before launching an eye-catching move three-wide to make the front by the top of the stretch. From there, the career earner of more than $300,000 opened up to win by two lengths in 1:51.4, last quarter in :27.1. Penpal is nominated to The Golden Girls, Lady Liberty, and TVG Mares Pace.

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (April 5, 2017) - Due to an error at Sportech's hub in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, the Meadowlands 5th race harness racing Jackpot Super High Five pool was mistakenly paid out in full last Saturday (April 1st) to 23 winning tickets. By rule, the wager pays out in full only when there is a single winning ticket. Otherwise, 75 percent of the net pool is paid out to the multiple winning tickets while the remaining 25 percent is added to the jackpot. The 23 winning tickets were each overpaid $714.78 rather than the correct price of $158.80. Sportech acknowledged that an employee incorrectly formatted the betting program into the pari-mutuel system prior to the race. Sportech has agreed to add $12,787.31 to Friday's Race 5 Jackpot Super High Five pool, which is the amount that should have been carried over from Saturday. "This was simply a matter of human error," explained Jason Settlemoir, Meadowlands GM and COO. "In this case, it was an error that worked out in favor of the customer, and we appreciate Sportech working with us to correct this error quickly, contributing the additional funds for Friday's jackpot, and putting the betting public's interests first and foremost." Live racing resumes Friday with an 11-race card. Post time is 7:15 p.m. For more information, visit www.playmeadowlands.com. Justin Horowitz

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (April 1, 2017) - While harness racing trainer Scott Di Domenico was watching his Missile J win again in the Levy Series at Yonkers, another more recent acquisition to his stable was turning heads again at the Meadowlands. Barimah, who made his Di Domenico debut last week with a lifetime-best 1:50.3 win against conditioned foes at the Big M, backed up that performance with an equally impressive score in an identical time in the featured $20,000 upper level pace. After Alberto Contador led the field through a half mile in :56.1, David Miller launched Barimah first over. Barimah continued to battle Alberto Contador through three-quarters in 1:23 with Artistic Major looking to find room up the pylons from his pocket spot. Barimah disposed of Alberto Contador and paced away from him to win by two lengths in 1:50.3. "He has been scary good," said Di Domenico. "His last few starts before we bought him, he was really charging home and he had some really good starts in Australia before he came over here so we took a shot on him." Barimah is owned by Brian Carsey, John Mcgill and Adam Friedland. Carsey and Mcgill are also partners on Missile J. "Those two guys get all the credit on pulling the trigger on Barimah too," said Di Domenico. "All I can say is I'm sure glad they did." Barimah Tyler Buter was the driving star of the night with three wins. Hall of Famer David Miller had a pair of wins on his return weekend at the Meadowlands and Andrew McCarthy also had two winners. Ron Burke had a training double. Total handle was $2,463,962. Racing resumes next Friday. Post time is 7:15 p.m. For more information, visit www.playmeadowlands.com. Justin Horowitz

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (March 31, 2017) - A strong and steady rain did nothing to damper Andy Miller's Friday night as "The Orange Crush" swept the Meadowlands harness racing features with Opulent Yankee and Truth and Liberty. In the $18,000 top trot, Opulent Yankee, the public's 7/10 choice, easily made the front from his assigned post seven. Crosbys Clam Bake tracked from the pocket through a half-mile in :56.2 and three-quarters in 1:25. As the field turned for home, Miller called on Opulent Yankee who answered with a :27.4 last quarter to kick clear and win by five widening lengths in 1:52.4. Crosbys Clam Bake held second with Second Sister rounding out the trifecta. Opulent Yankee was winning for the third time in his last five starts. The 6-year-old Muscles Yankee gelding has now earned $318,320 for owners Little E LLC, Art Geiger and David Stolz. One race later in the $16,000 conditioned mare pace, Miller aggressively brushed Truth and Liberty to the front before a half mile in :56.3. 9/5 favorite Inittowinafortune tracked front second. Truth and Liberty continued to lead through three-quarters in 1:24.4. Sheeza Shark sat a perfect second-over trip with David Miller and looked poised to track down the longtime leader, but Truth and Liberty held her challengers at bay with a :28.1 final quarter to win her fourth straight Big M start in 1:53. Two-time Amateur Driver of the Year Hannah Miller established a new amateur driver world record when she guided So Take That to a 1:52.4 win in a GSY Club pace.

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (March 31, 2017) - With the first quarter of 2017 coming to a close, the Meadowlands has shown a substantial 22 percent increase in the size of its harness racing Pick Five pool versus the same period in 2016. Fueled in part by two carryovers, the average Pick Five pool has been $59,854 versus $48,845 during the first three months of 2016. If you remove the two carryovers, the pool size is still up nearly 4 percent. "I think the first three months of the year show once again how important low takeout and carryovers are in boosting our multi-race wagers," said Jason M. Settlemoir, Meadowlands General Manager and COO. "We were fortunate to have two carryovers and one night where we seeded the Pick Five pool and it is no surprise those three nights produced the largest Pick Five pools of the year." The Pick Five is a 50-cent base wager with a 15 percent takeout rate. It is offered each night on Races 1 - 5. The Pick Four wagers have also shown an increase year-over-year of nearly 2.5 percent. The Early Pick Four covering Races 3 - 6 sports an average pool size of $54,627 and the Late Pick Four covering Races 7 - 10 has an average pool size of $71,515. Both wagers also carry a 50-cent minimum with a 15 percent takeout rate. Despite fewer races carded this winter versus last winter, per race handle has still held strong at $208,958.
