Cranbury, NJ... The initial payment deadline for eligibility to more than 127 stake events at 14 different tracks, headlined by the $1 million Hambletonian at The Meadowlands on August 8 and the $5 million Breeders Crown events at Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto on October 24, is fast approaching.

Because of the federal holiday on Monday, payments for all Hambletonian Society serviced Stakes are due Tuesday, February 17 and must be postmarked by midnight on Wednesday, February 18, per USTA Rule 12.02.

Important changes to the 2015 stakes landscape include the canceling of the Historic Stakes for this year only; a host of new races and changes to existing ones in Pennsylvania, Indiana and Ohio and the freshman Fall Final Four Championships rotating back to The Meadowlands this year.

New races with February 15 payments due:

o Dan Patch (was an Invitational, now an early closer in 2015)

o Cleveland Trotting Classic (4-year-old & up trotters)

o Crossroads of America (3-year-old filly trot)

o Jenna's Beach Boy (3-year-old colt pacers)

o Meadows Maturities (4-year-old & up horse & mare trots)

o USS Indianapolis Memorial (3-year-old Filly Pacers)

The web site contains all the tools and information necessary to stake your horse yourself. All information pertaining to these races - racing conditions, payment forms and much more information - is now available online at or by calling the Society offices at 609-371-2211.

In all cases only ONE check (U.S. FUNDS) is ever necessary for each of the four payments periods i.e.: February 15, March 15, April 15 or May 15.
