The Meadowlands Website

-- Meadowlands Media Relations

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ -- February 8, 2016 -- The 2016 Grand Circuit stakes season at The Meadowlands will offer over $14 million in purses including both the $1.7 million Hambletonian &Hambletonian Oaks and $5.7 million Breeders Crown. A few new events have been added to the list of lucrative Meadowlands administered stakes led by the inaugural $150,000E ElitloppPlayoff for older trotters scheduled for the lone Sunday live race card onMotherís Day, May 8. The Elitlopp Playoff is a joint venture between The Meadowlands and the Elitlopp Directors and is unique in that the race winner will be invited to compete in that great trotting classic in Solvalla, Swedenon Sunday, May 29. The use of trotting hopples and Lasix are prohibited for this stake. Another new development is that the popular Kindergarten Classic Series will have races for the two-year-old pacers as well as trotters in 2016.There are
five $10,000G legs scheduled from late July through late October with the $150,000E finals and $50,000E consolations to be raced on November 5. The Graduate Series for four-year-old pacers and trotters returns with three $75,000
($50,000 div) legs beginning on May 21 at The Meadowlands. Mohawk Racetrack will host leg two on Saturday, June 4 and the third leg is at Tioga Downs on June 12. The $250,000G finals will be raced at The Meadowlands on Saturday, July 9 as part of the Meadowlands Pace elimination card. The Meadowlands Pace is estimated at $750,000 this year and heads a stellar card that includes the $450,000 Hambletonian Maturity trot on July 16. Also returning is the $1 million TVG FFA Championships for all divisions of the older horses on November 12.Due to the Presidents Day holiday, nominations postmarked by February 17 will be accepted. A few important notes are that the Kindergarten and Miss Versatility payments will be taken by The Meadowlands this year and thecondition that limited trainers to a maximum of two entries in stakes finalshas been repealed for the 2016 races.
