MEADOWLANDS STAKES NEWS

-- Meadowlands Media Department

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ -- January 31, 2017 -- The Meadowlands wishes to remind horsemen of some important details on the 2017 stakes schedule that they should be aware of as they consider payments for the season.

Important to those with Hambletonian hopefuls is the change in venue for the Tompkins-Geers 3YO colt and filly trots to The Meadowlands. Those stakes have been scheduled for Saturday, July 22 as the middle leg in a three race series of Hambo preps. The Stanley Dancer and Del Miller Memorials are on July 15 and Reynolds 3YO trotting stakes come the following Saturday, July 29 with Hambo Day on August 5.

The Hambletonian Society handles the payments for the Tompkins-Geers and Reynolds as well as the Hambletonian itself. The Dancer and Miller are Meadowlands administered stakes.

The Mistletoe Shalee for sophomore pacing fillies has had payments reduced by 25% for 2017.

There are important details regarding races for two year olds in 2017 as well. The Meadowlands will host the popular $1.2 million Fall Final Four stakes consisting of the Governor's Cup, Valley Victory, Three Diamonds and Goldsmith Maid in mid-November.

With The Meadowlands fall meet starting on November 17 this year, the $800,000 Kindergarten finals will be raced at Vernon Downs on Friday, November 3.
