7th Annual Camel & Ostrich Derby at Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment

Wednesday, June 13, 2018



On Saturday, June 16th, camels and ostriches will thunder down the stretch at Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment for the 7th Annual Cameltonian & Ostrich Derby.  Admission and parking are free for this event.


The much- anticipated camel and ostrich races will take place during the live harness racing. Fans will watch the ostriches when they battle it out after Race 3 with an approximate post time of 8:05 PM and the camels will take their marks after Race 8 with an approximate post time of 9:50 PM.


The best seat in the house may be the track’s Victory Terrace.  The Terrace features great views of the racing action and the NYC skyline along with a DJ, bar and grill.


Live harness racing will commence at 7:15 PM, and fans can test their luck in Horseplay. Pick up a free horse and throw the horse into the car for a chance to win $100 and entry into the August 3rd car drawing for a 2018 Toyota Corolla. For every horse that makes it into the target car, Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment will donate $10 to the Bergen County Horse Rescue.
