Meadowlands Stakes Payment News and March Details

Friday, March 6, 2020

The Meadowlands has processed the February nomination payments  for the extensive Grand Circuit program of stakes and Early Closers. The lists of horses paid into those races is now posted on the track's website.

 

The number of horses nominated was down slightly, just 4% from the 2019 payments. Several older horse divisions saw a remarkable uptick with the Graduate Pace and Trot both at an all time high while the WR Haughton and Sam McKee Memorials rose to levels that haven't been seen for years.

 

Be reminded that the sustaining payments come due (postmarked by) March 16. 

 

Also two brand new Early Closers have been added for Older Pacing Horses & Mares with a single payment of $1,000 due by March 16. They will serve as supporting stakes to the Cutler Memorial on the May 16 nationally televised broadcast for an estimated purse of $85,000.

 

Information on the stakes process is available on the web or by calling the Meadowlands Racing Office at (201) 842-5130.
