GSY AMATEURS BATTLE THE PROS SATURDAY AT THE MEADOWLANDS

--Meadowlands Media Relations

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ -- July 29, 2016 -- Bringing the curtain down on a wildly successful 2016 season, members of the GSY Amateur Driving Club will take on the pros in Saturday night’s first race, titled The $12,000 GSY Pro Am.

The amateur drivers have played a large role in the live racing this season, providing races when asked and the quality of the competition has drawn interest from the horseplayers. Several of the GSY events handled well in excess of $200,000 with the zenith on March 20 when two GSY races handled more than $500,000 combined.

Saturday’s race pits the top six dash winners from this year's races, John Calabrese and Jim Marshall IV (4 wins), Bob Hechkoff, David Glasser and Joe Lee (3 wins) and Hannah Miller (2 wins) against Hall of Fame drivers John Campbell and David Miller along with the sport’s current top seasonal money winner Tim Tetrick.

The Pro Am is scheduled in concert with the “Night at The Meadowlands” owners seminar offered by The Meadowlands and the USTA on Saturday evening beginning at 5:00 p.m.

David Glasser is among the mentors available to the attending prospects and he will return after the race to relive his experience with the group. David’s harness racing roots are deep as his parents, Evelyn and Arthur Glasser owned well over 200 horses that raced at tracks in the greater metropolitan area years ago.

The Meadowlands appreciates the efforts of the GSY Amateur Club, particularly Club President Dave Yarock who has worked tirelessly to provide competitive races for his members and the track.

You may learn more about Amateur Harness Driving and the GSY club in particular by visiting their website.

All proceeds from membership dues and driver’s percentages from the races are donated to the Edward Weiner & Edward Yarock Scholarship. This entity provides scholarships to individuals pursuing higher education related to the equine and harness racing industries. The fund also provides grants to individuals in the harness racing community (their children and/or family members) in their pursuit of higher education. Since inception, through the end of 2015, the fund has provided over $150,000 in assistance.

The Meadowlands will also host the popular Brews, Blues & BBQ on Saturday night. Post time is 7:15 p.m.
