MEADOWLANDS ANNOUNCES $600,000 WINTER LATE CLOSER PROGRAM

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ – October 9, 2014 – The Meadowlands has revised the 2015 Winter Late Closer program with a blend of familiar names and some new events with all finals combined for an estimated $600,000 in purses.

Races like the Super Bowl, Charles Singer Memorial, Buddy Gilmour and Clyde Hirt all return, but this year they are joined by five new events for trotters and pacers.

There are three events for trotters -- the Super Bowl, Charles Singer Memorial -- and a new series, the Shiaway St. Pat, which will replace the Horse & Groom Series.

There are three events for male pacers -- the Escort, Sonsam and Clyde Hirt -- as well as a pair of late closers for filly and mare pacers, the Worldly Beauty and Burning Point. The Buddy Gilmour Series returns for three-year-old pacers.

“The late closer program this winter has been designed so that horses can essentially find a home at the Meadowlands for three months in the winter,” said Director of Racing Operations Darin Zoccali. “The conditions of the late closers for each group of horses ramp up throughout the winter meet with the hope to have horses competing in these events throughout the winter, making for some great racing, potential rivalries, all the while giving our horsemen plenty of opportunities to race for good money.”

The Meadowlands Winter Late Closer program may also be a focal point for those looking for race horses at the Harrisburg Mixed Sale.

“As of the time of this press release, there are nearly 300 horses that will go through the sales ring at Harrisburg that fit at least one of our late closer events this winter,” Zoccali added. “We envision that many of these horses will be targeted with some of our winter events in mind.”

The nominating form for the Winter Late Closer program at the Meadowlands can be found in the Horsemen folder on the Meadowlands website,

Questions on the program should be addressed to Director of Racing Operations Darin Zoccali at (201) 460-4041 or dzoccali@playmeadowlands.com.
