NEW NJ LAW ENSURES LIVE STANDARDBRED HORSE RACING CONTINUES
 
— NJ Assembly Republicans Press Office

TRENTON, NJ — January 12, 2022 — Live Standardbred horse racing, also known as harness racing, must continue at racetracks in New Jersey under a new law sponsored by Assemblyman Ron Dancer.

On Monday (Jan. 10), the governor signed the bill (A2265/S3771) requiring Standardbred racetracks that have sports wagering licenses to hold a minimum of 151 race dates, with limited exceptions.

“The horse racing industry relies on thousands of jobs, from veterinarians to trainers and many others, and generates millions of dollars in tax revenue while also supporting open space,” Dancer said. “My bill will protect this vital industry while making sure fans can continue to experience the excitement and thunder of harness racing in New Jersey.”

Standardbred horses can reach speeds of more than 30mph as they race a track while pulling a driver in a two-wheeled cart, called a sulky.

The legislation affects the two Standardbred racetracks in the state, the Meadowlands and Freehold Raceway.
