THURSDAY NIGHT CARD AT THE MEADOWLANDS

-- Meadowlands Media Relations

East Rutherford, NJ - The final live programs of 2016 are set to go at The Meadowlands as a three day week of racing. A ten race card boasting full field of ten in every race gets things under way on the evening of Thursday, December 29.

With so few tracks in operation, horses are literally coming from everywhere to race at The Meadowlands. One of the more interesting examples is Johnny Z, a ten-year-old gelding who most recently been grinding it out on the Maine circuit.

Johnny Z has been around, starting his promising career in the George Teague, Jr stable way back in 2008 with a pair of stakes wins at two before an early seasonal shut down. He came back early at three and won the $300,000 Max Hempt Memorial Grand Circuit stake.

Johnny Z remained on Team Teague until mid way through his four-year-old season where he moved into the Ron Burke barn. From there it's been a long journey from barn to barn racing competitively around the metropolitan for several seasons before Maine became his home in early 2015.

He's back on the major circuit this Thursday in race seven for his eighteenth owner, McCoo, Inc and Jonathan Klee Racing, with trainer Mike Watson and gets Brett Miller to drive in a spot that may well be to his liking.

It’s not too late to join the fun and excitement of being a horse owner without the risk by signing up for the popular “Own A Horse” promotion. Get your name in at customer service before time runs out.

The racing rolls right through the weekend with New Year’s Eve on Saturday a focus. Pink, the track’s highly reviewed tiered dining facility, is hosting a NYE celebration with a delightful buffet and fireworks after the races to greet 2017 in style.

Post time each night is 7:15 p.m.
