GURAL: NEW STAKES IN GARDEN STATE FOR 2022 MORE REASONS TO BUY A NEW JERSEY-SIRED YEARLING
 
— Dave Briggs

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ — April 28, 2022 — Meadowlands owner Jeff Gural said Tuesday that sports betting at his East Rutherford, NJ track has been so successful there will be an additional $2 million in stakes events for New Jersey-sired horses beginning in 2022 thanks to a partnership between his track and the Standardbred Breeders and Owners Association (SBOA) of New Jersey.

“We have an agreement with the horsemen that they get 25 per cent of any sports-betting revenue over $6 million dollars with a minimum of a million dollars. Our best guess is that will result in the horsemen getting a payment at the end of the year between $2.5 and $3 million dollars, depending on how the (sports) underdogs do between now and the end of the year,” Gural said, laughing.

“We would be in deep trouble without sports betting because the horse racing has really suffered financially and it’s really the sports betting that’s keeping us afloat, unfortunately.”
