Meadowlands All-Turf Meet Begins Friday

The Meadowlands Racetrack will kick-off the first of 10 all-turf Thoroughbred cards, this Friday, Oct. 11.  Post time for the fall Monmouth-at-Meadowlands Thoroughbred meet, which boasts free parking and admission, will be 2:15 p.m., with gates opening at 11:30 a.m.  Live racing will be offered on Fridays, Saturdays and Mondays through Nov. 2, with the exception of Monday, Oct. 21, which will be a dark day.

Friday’s opener has drawn 76 entries over six races, headlined by race five, a $30,000 allowance/optional claiming event at one mile.


New to the wagering menu will be the Jersey Six, which is the exact same wager as Monmouth Park’s Jersey Shore Six.  The bet, which is a 10-cent base wager, debuted at Monmouth Park this summer.  To win the jackpot, a ticket must have the winner of all six races on the card and be the only one to have done so.  If more than one person has a winning ticket, they split 60% of the net pool with 40% going to the carryover.


The fall Thoroughbred meet will be the last at the existing Meadowlands Racetrack, which first opened for business in 1976.
