Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment is seeking local NJ charities interested in having a night at the races for a good cause in the second annual Charity Handicapping Contest, scheduled for Saturday, December 4, 2021  


 The Charity Handicapping Contest is a free handicapping contest open to 501C3 organizations.   The Contest offers a $15,000 total donation/prize pool, with all ten charities receiving a donation. Prizes will be awarded as follows: 1st Place: $5,000, 2nd Place: $3,000, 3rd Place: $2,000, 4th Place: $1,500,
5th Place: $1,000, 6th-10th: $500 



 For the Charity Handicapping Contest, organizations will select one (1) horse in each of the 10 designated Meadowlands live races.  The organizations will amass a mythical bankroll if their selection officially finishes first, second or third in the designated race. Official $2 WPS (Win, Place, Show) payoffs will be added to the mythical bankroll. Official race results will serve as the order of finish. The organization that accumulates the highest mythical bankroll is the winner. 



 Participating organizations will also have the opportunity to make winner’s circle presentations (if allowed with COVID-19 Protocols) and be featured on the track’s jumbotron.
