EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (January 18, 2017) - Business at the Meadowlands is off to a strong start through the first four harness racing cards of 2017 with per race handle averaging a robust $221,793 or less than 1 percent ahead of last year's pace at this time. The first two Friday night cards of 2017 have produced total handle in excess of $3 million while average nightly handle is $2.88 million. As usual, horseplayers have found the winter cards at the Meadowlands to be a challenge with betting favorites winning at just 28 percent. New faces in the driver's room have helped create a new kind of exciting racing. Youngsters such as Drew Monti and Joe Bongiorno have earned the wagering public's attention while veterans Brett Miller, Corey Callahan, and Jim Marohn, Jr. continue to be a factor on a nightly basis. "While some of the usual Meadowlands faces are not here this winter, this new, fresh set of drivers has helped create a new kind of excitement every night," said Meadowlands COO/GM Jason Settlemoir. "The younger guys are so hungry to prove themselves and I think it has been a lot of fun to see them get better each weekend." The multi-race wagers have offered some of the largest payoffs in all of harness racing. The Late Pick Four, covering Races 7 - 10, has averaged a pool size of $82,749 with an average return of $8,162 including a massive $30,318 on January 6. The average pool in the Early Pick Four (Races 3 - 6) is $62,945 with an average 50-cent payoff of just under $2,000 led by a season-high $7,781 on January 7. Meanwhile, the Pick Five (Races 1 - 5) is averaging a pool size of $60,778 with an average payoff of $1,361 with a high of $3,300 on January 7.

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (January 17, 2017) - Meadowlands Racetrack, the world's premier harness racing track located in East Rutherford, NJ, and SNY, the official home of the New York Mets, Jets, and all things New York sports, have struck a deal to broadcast seven live nights of racing. "Meadowlands Harness Live" will air from 9:30 p.m. - 10:30 p.m. for seven consecutive Thursdays from January 26 - March 9. The programs will be broadcast in high definition and produced by the award-winning Meadowlands Television Department. SNY already broadcasts the Meadowlands nightly recap show. Three live Meadowlands races are scheduled to be shown during each broadcast. "This is a tremendous deal that will showcase our racing product to a national audience on a major mainstream sports network," said Meadowlands COO/GM Jason M. Settlemoir. "This has the potential to drive incremental wagering handle and help to strengthen the already powerful Meadowlands brand. We have to thank our partners at the United States Trotting Association and their Television Fund for their sponsorship and support of these broadcasts." The pot will be sweetened for fans watching the broadcasts as TVG, the nation's largest advanced deposit wagering operator, will offer a special sign-up bonus for new customers and a money-back special for existing customers. More details will be provided in advance of the broadcasts. "Meadowlands Harness Live" will be hosted by award-winning horse racing broadcaster Justin Horowitz. Other Meadowlands television commentators including Harness Racing Hall of Famers Sam McKee and Bob "Hollywood" Heyden, as well as Ken Warkentin and Jennifer Bongiorno will be part of the broadcasts. Leading trainers Tony Alagna, Ron Burke, and other top horsemen are also scheduled to appear. For more information, visit www.playmeadowlands.com. Justin Horowitz

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (January 14, 2017) - Jim Marohn, Jr. and Brett Miller stole the show on Saturday night at the Meadowlands, but when the 13-race harness racing program concluded, the final tally read Marohn - 5 and Miller - 4. "These are the types of nights you dream about having when you race at the Meadowlands," said Marohn, who won four races in one night at the Big M last September. "It looked like I had some horses in good spots tonight and it was very satisfying that they raced up to their abilities. It always helps to have some good horsepower." Marohn's five wins were highlighted by an upset win by The Rock in the $15,000 featured pace. The Rock paid $19.80 to win and was the only double-digit win payout of the night. In the feature, Parnu Hanover took over from Elrama after a 27.1 first quarter and continued to front the field through three quarters in 1:23.2 as he looked to win his second straight with Marcus Miller. As the field straightened into the stretch, Marohn tipped The Rock four-wide and won by a length despite drifting slightly. The Rock is owned by Travis Henry and trained by Andrew Harris, but is consigned to Monday's Tattersalls Mixed Sale as hip 224 beginning at 11:00 a.m. in the Meadowlands back paddock. "He raced giant tonight," explained Marohn, who won three of his five races on Saturday for trainer Patti Harmon. "He exploded when I pulled him off a helmet. Andrew told me he was coming into this race sharp so I drove him with confidence." Total handle on the 13-race card was $2,802,711 which was nearly flat compared to last year's comparable card that included 14 races. The Pick Five that included $10,000 in seed money from the Meadowlands returned $178.70 and attracted a total pool of $77,301. Matt Zlotkowski won Saturday's World Harness Handicapping Contest qualifying tournament at the Meadowlands. He turned his $100 bankroll into $630 to top the field and earn a spot into April's $50,000 Final. Live racing resumes Friday at 7:15 p.m. For more information, visit www.playmeadowlands.com.

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (January 13, 2017) - Harness racing's royally-bred Muscle Diamond justified his heavy favoritism to win the $18,000 trotting feature by two lengths on Friday night at the Meadowlands. The entire complexion of the race changed before it began when morning line favorite Crosbys Clam Bake was scratched sick. That left Muscle Diamond to inherit the favorite's role at 3-5 after futilely chasing Crosbys Clam Bake last week. John Campbell put the 5-year-old son of Muscle Hill - Windylane Hanover, by Lindy Lane on the front end through easy fractions of 29.1 and 57 for the first half before hitting three-quarters in 1:26 and kicking home in 28.3 to complete the mile in 1:54.3. Opulent Yankee chased all the way to be second with Anaffairtoremember rounding out the trifecta. "He was good enough tonight, but not as strong finishing as I had hoped he would be," said Campbell. Muscle Diamond finished second in the Breeders Crown at two and third in the Breeders Crown at three before being sidelined for 13 months. "He has matured physically and has filled out," said Campbell. "He is taller and stronger. He was always good mentally when he was 2 and 3. He's being raced this winter so Brett can get a gauge on where to stake him this summer." Brett Bittle trains Muscle Diamond and shares ownership of the eight-time winner of $634,199 with Charles Keller III, Charles Keller IV, and Dan Bittle. For the second Friday in a row, Meadowlands newcomer Drew Monti scored a driving triple including $65.20 winner It's Chocolate Time in race 12. Total handle on the 13-race program was $3,070,537, up one percent over the corresponding date last year when 14 races were conducted. Marcello Spano and Nicolas Roussel each scored their first Meadowlands driving wins. Live racing continues Saturday night with a 13-race program beginning at 7:15 p.m. For more information, visit www.playmeadowlands.com. Justin Horowitz

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (January 11, 2017) - Despite a winter storm that dumped nearly four inches of snow on the racetrack and upwards of eight inches in other parts of New Jersey that are home to many of the state's racehorses, the Meadowlands Racetrack is pleased to have raced its entire 13-race harness racing card this past Saturday night as scheduled. This came as other racetracks in the region called off their racing programs. "We never considered cancelling our card and that is a huge testament to our entire staff here at the Meadowlands," said Jason Settlemoir, GM and COO of the Meadowlands Racetrack. "I also want to send a sincere thank you to all of the horsemen that braved the conditions to bring their horses to race. These men and women truly are dedicated to their horses and to our sport and we appreciate their support." The winter storm did create some treacherous travel conditions leading up to the races, which prevented several Meadowlands drivers from arriving as scheduled. This created an abnormally large number of late driver changes. In response to the wagering public, the Meadowlands, in conjunction with its racing commission-employed judges, has put new internal controls in place. These controls will ensure, among other things, that no race that begins a multi-leg wager (Pick 3, Pick 4, Pick 5) will go out to post parade until all changes within the sequence races have been announced to the public. "We realize we made an error on Saturday night in an effort to get the races started and for that we sincerely apologize to the wagering public," said Settlemoir. "We know how much time and energy is put into handicapping and we want to assure our fans that we will place their interests at the top of our list of concerns every night." With another weekend of racing complete with full fields and challenging races on tap, the Meadowlands is offering its customers a special deal on Saturday, January 14. The track is taking the commission it received from this past Saturday's Pick Five wager plus another $7,500 to create $10,000 in "seed" money that will be added to January 14's Pick Five pool. This will essentially lower the wager's takeout rate by creating a carryover-like scenario. These scenarios provide further financial incentive for handicappers to play into the wager. The Pick Five covers the first five races on the card and carries a low 15-percent takeout. The average pool was more than $57,000 last weekend.

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (January 7, 2017) - Although accomplished in completely different fashions, Saturday's co-featured pacing events at the Meadowlands both ended with harness racing driver Marcus Miller in the winner's circle. Miller, recently named the sport's Rising Star Award winner, put heavily favored Parnu Hanover on the front end past a 27.2 opening quarter and blazed to a 1:50.3 victory in the $13,000 conditioned pace. The time was even more impressive on a cold and snowy night in New Jersey that had the track rated with a -2 track variant. Parnu Hanover won by a length over Sassy Hanover with Mister Truth rounding out the trifecta. "It worked out exactly as I wanted it to," said Miller. "I wanted to move to the front sometime before the half and make them catch me. He went the mile I hoped he would." Parnu Hanover is trained by Erv Miller and shared in ownership by the Erv Miller Stable, Alva Miller, and Sara Miller. His ninth career win moves his lifetime earnings past $100,000. Two races earlier, a wild stretch drive saw 24-1 outsider Preparty slip up the pylons to upset a field of conditioned pacers for Jim Marohn, Jr. However, the judges ruled that Preparty gained an unfair advantage by going inside a pylon and disqualified him. That moved Moonwriter, driven by Miller, into the win spot at 11-1. Millionaire Alexie Mattosie was intent on the lead with Drew Monti and parked out Ontario Success through a half mile in 55.1. At the top of stretch, Pansformative swung three-wide around a tiring Ontario Success. Moonwriter followed that move with Ashley's Husband gearing up with his patented stretch drive. Preparty stayed inside and just got up under the wire first in 1:52.1 before being placed ninth. Moonwriter is trained by Andrew Harris and co-owned by Harris and Michael Gallicchio of Beachwood, NJ. Jackpot Super High Five hit again For the first time in 2017, the 20-cent Jackpot Super High Five was hit in the fifth race for $7,236.80. Stratocaster, at 30-1, stormed to the lead just before the wire to win followed by 3-2 favorite K-Lees Shakenbake, 8-1 Dreamlands Art. 35-1 Sky Is The Limit was fourth and 9-2 Barimah was fifth to round out the single winning ticket. Stratocaster was one of two huge longshot winners driven by Marohn, who finished the night with a hat trick. He came back to win the 11th with 55-1 Baggage Claim for trainer Patti Harmon to become the second $100-plus winner of the weekend after Abbijade Hanover won Friday at 54-1. Greg Merton, Vinnie Ginsburg, and Bill Mann also posted driving doubles. Total handle for the 13-race card was $2,348,381. Live racing resumes next Friday.

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (January 6, 2017) - The public pumped $3,311,264 through the wagering windows on the 13-race harness racing card at the Meadowlands on Friday night. The total represents a nearly 15-percent increase over the corresponding date last year, which featured 14 races. On the track, despite back-to-back wins as the favorite since returning to the Meadowlands, Crosbys Clam Bake was overshadowed in the wagering as stakes-winner Muscle Diamond was sent off as the 3-5 favorite in the $18,000 trotting feature. Crosbys Clam Bake would not be denied as the seven-year-old son of Kadabra held off the late charge of the public's choice to win in gate-to-wire fashion for his third straight victory. B Yoyo rallied to grab third. Jim Marohn, Jr. put Crosbys Clam Bake on the lead through an opening quarter of 27.2. He continued his march on top through a half mile in 55.4 and three-quarters in 1:25. Opulent Yankee loomed first over while giving Muscle Diamond and John Campbell a perfect second-over tow. Muscle Diamond kicked off his cover at the top of the stretch, but could not get to Crosbys Clam Bake in 1:53.3. Andy Federico, Jr. trains Crosbys Clam Bake for owners Randy Bendis, Jack Piatt, and Tom Pollack. "He's remarkable and has been so sharp all year," said Marohn. "He's just as good this January as he was this time last year. Andy does a great job with him and believe me, he's not as easy horse to manage. I'm very grateful for the opportunity to drive him." Crosbys Clam Bake earned his 32nd career win and increased his lifetime bankroll to $465,336. Crosbys Clam Bake Corey Callahan scored a grand slam including wins in the final three races of the night. Joe Bongiorno and Drew Monti each posted driving triples. Ron Burke won with all three of his starters. Live racing continues Saturday night with a 13-race program beginning at 7:15 p.m. For more information, visit www.playmeadowlands.com. MONTI HAT TRICK HELPS TRIGGER GIANT PICK FOUR PAYOFF AT THE MEADOWLANDS The Meadowlands late pick four wager returned a whopping $30,318.05 to three lucky horseplayers on Friday night thanks to a series of long shot winners. The total pool was $107,018. 22-year-old Big M newcomer Drew Monti was responsible for three of the four winners in the sequence including $110 upsetter Abbijade Hanover for leading trainer Ron Burke in the opening leg. That was followed by $23 winner Windsong Illusion, driven by leading driver Brett Miller. Monti won the next two races with $27 winner Fanticipation and closed out the sequence with $11 winner Joyful Game. Monti is racing at the Meadowlands for just the third week after earning leading driver honors at the recently concluded Batavia Downs meet. It is his first Meadowlands driving triple. He entered tonight with just one career win at the Big M. For more information, please visit www.playmeadowlands.com. Justin Horowitz

A 95-1 shocker in the fifth race proved too difficult to conquer for the harness racing handicappers leading to a $25,874.24 carryover in the Pick Five heading into next Thursday’s program. This is the first Pick Five carryover at the Meadowlands since March 25, 2016. On that night, a carryover of more than $31,000 helped create a total pool of $151,096. The Pick Five covers the first five races on the program. First race post time is 7:15 p.m. Mister Truth, driven by Jim Marohn, Jr. from post 10, just got up in the final strides to win a photo finish and trigger the massive payoffs. Mister Truth returned $198.40 for a $2 win wager, and 49-1 outsider Dancin Hill finished second to combine for a $2 exacta worth $2,768.20. While the Pick Five was too tough to figure, one lucky handicapper who wagered through Western OTB in New York was able to take down the Jackpot Super High Five, good for a $9,674.96 return for a 20-cent wager. The winning combination was 95-1 Mister Truth, 49-1 Dancin Hill, 4-1 Starlite Kid, 23-1 Something For Doc, and 28-1 Rockaholic. Blatantly Best, the prohibitive 3-5 favorite, checked in eighth. This is the fourth time in the last five weeks that one of two Jackpot Super High Five wagers was hit at the Meadowlands.

Leading Midwestern-based driver, Tyler Smith, is expected to move east to the Meadowlands beginning Thursday, December 15. The 23-year-old became the youngest driver in the history of harness racing to reach the 2,000 win plateau, which he achieved this past April. "I am definitely planning to come out there starting this week and stay clear through December," explained Smith, who also is the youngest driver to reach 1,000 career wins. "I want to see how things are going and then decide if I will stay into January and beyond." Smith has previously raced at the Meadowlands on a handful of occasions. He made his Meadowlands Pace debut and Breeders Crown debut in 2014 with the Joe Seekman-trained Let's Drink On It. He had a night to remember at the Big M on June 28, 2014 when he won five races on one card. Overall, he has won eight races in 55 drives at the Meadowlands. Smith will be one of several young up-and-coming drivers who will have greater opportunities this winter at the Meadowlands. He is scheduled to drive in 10 of Thursday's 11 races for professionals. There will be no shortage of hungry newcomers hoping to pick up valuable mounts. Meadowlands regulars Joe Bongiorno, Jim Marohn, Jr., and Vinny Ginsburg figure to slug it out with veterans John Campbell, Andy Miller, and Corey Callahan for leading driver honors during the winter months, where deep, competitive fields figure to be the norm. The Meadowlands will race the remaining Thursdays in December with the regular 7:15 p.m. post time. Thursdays will also be added to the regular Friday and Saturday schedule beginning January 26 and continuing through March 9. Guaranteed Pools Update The usual guaranteed pools in the Meadowlands Pick Five and Early and Late Pick Four wagers will be suspended on Thursday, December 15 and Thursday, December 22 as well as Saturday, December 31.

Building on the success of previous versions of the harness racing promotion, the Meadowlands Racetrack is pleased to announce the return of its wildly popular "Own A Horse" promotion. Fans may register on the Meadowlands website. The sign up period runs through December 31. 10 contestants will be randomly selected during live racing on December 31 and assigned a horse that will be racing at the Meadowlands during January. Each contestant will win up to 10 percent of the horse's earnings during the month without any of the expenses. Contestants will also have the opportunity to meet their horse in the paddock before it races and get their photo taken in the winner's circle should they be lucky enough to see their horse win a race. The earlier rounds of the "Own A Horse" promotion have paid out more than $5,000 to new "owners" with at least one contest participant turning into an actual horse owner. "We all know how badly our sport needs new owners to experience the thrills of racehorse ownership while also giving breeders more potential customers for their yearlings," said Meadowlands Chairman Jeffrey Gural. "This promotion has already given 60 people an insider's look at being a horse owner while helping to expose our beautiful facility and wonderful sport to dozens of potential new fans."
