COLLMUS TO GUEST CALL A MEADOWLANDS RACE; 3YO TROTTERS FEATURED; PAIR OF “RUS” RACES

MANALAPAN, NJ – July 16, 2014 -- Larry Collmus, NBC Sports’ Voice of the Triple Crown, will call the 11th race Friday night at the Meadowlands.

"I'm looking forward to seeing the New Meadowlands for the first time after calling many thoroughbred races in the original facility,” said Collmus. “This will be my first harness call in about 20 years, and it should be a lot of fun, so long as I don't screw it up!"


Larry Collmus


Collmus called the races at Monmouth Park in Oceanport New Jersey from 1994 until taking over the announcer duties at Churchill Downs in 2014.

Collmus will join Ken Warkentin as his “In the Sulky” guest on the Meadowlands television show prior to the races. The guest race call will come with a field of six free for all pacers.

The Friday night card also spotlights three-year-old trotting colts in a pair of WN Reynolds Memorial – Scott Frost - divisions. The $32,207 first split, the second race, features Stanley Dancer Memorial runner up Nuncio, while his stablemate, Trixton, who was third in the Dancer, drew into the second split, the 12th race. Both are trained by Jimmy Takter.

With only four entrants, the $47,915 WN Reynolds – Mary Frost for three-year-old trotting fillies will be carded as a non-wagering race at 6:50 p.m.

Two $5,000 Racing Under Saddle events will also be presented on Friday night as non-betting exhibitions. The six-horse first division will take place after the second race and the five-horse second division is after the fourth race.
