MEADOWLANDS ANNOUNCES SCHEDULE & FORMAT CHANGES FOR 2016

--From the Meadowlands

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ -- October 19, 2015 -- The Meadowlands has announced schedule and format changes for next year.

The Meadowlands will race live on Friday and Saturday throughout the 2016 season, beginning January 6 and concluding with Hambletonian Day, Saturday, August 6.

Post time will be moved up to 7 p.m. and a few more races may be added to accommodate the demands of the horse population.

In response to the difficulty horsemen face getting overnight horses raced consistently through January and February and continued poor subscription to the winter late closer program, there will be no late closers offered during those months next year.

The Meadowlands will also race live for three weekends in September next year, with the focus on two-year-olds, featuring Kindergarten legs for both trotters and pacers to provide mile-track racing opportunities for late-bloomers preparing for The Red Mile and beyond.

The September Friday dates are to be raced as blended cards with thoroughbreds racing on the grass and standardbreds on the main track as part of the same program.

Also under consideration is an earlier start to the 2016 Fall Meet, potentially opening two weeks after the Red Mile Grand Circuit meet, providing greater continuity to the stakes schedule as well as warmer weather for the Breeders Crown races.

These dates are subject to New Jersey Racing Commission approval.

QUALIFIERS START FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 6

In anticipation of live racing this fall, qualifiers will be held on Friday, November 6 at 9:30 a.m. The box will close at 10 a.m. on Thursday.
