Meadowlands In Big Action on Friday

Thursday, January 11, 2018

  The Meadowlands resumes live racing on Friday, January 12 with a Pick-5 Guaranteed Pool of $125,000 the evening's headline. 


Nobody picked five back on Saturday, December 30, the most recently raced card what with the cancellation of last weekends races. The resulting carryover of $28,786 led to the hefty guarantee which is backed by The Meadowlands in concert with the United States Trotting Association Strategic Wagering. The wager begins in race 3, has a fifty cent minimum and a 15% retention rate. 


On the racetrack, a healthy response in the entry box has again resulted in maximum field size with ten participants in each and every race. This development has resulted in even larger pools thus a very positive effect on the handle for the past few race cards. 


The races themselves represent something for everyone, of an interesting fusion of conditioned races brimming with veterans along with a few field of younger types competing in lifetime wins & money classes as they seek their level. 


There are more than a few horses on Friday's card that have been consigned to the Tattersalls January Mixed Sale that will be held on Monday, January 15 in The Meadowlands paddock. Information on the sale may be found on their website. 


Program pages for the Pick 5 and other guaranteed bets are available for free and our experts have been tirelessly sorting through the fields in search of winners for you, our faithful horse playing fan. 


Dine in Pink to make the experience all that it can be. 


Post time is 6:35 pm.
