More Meadowlands and Freehold racing days coming this year
« on: January 12, 2022, 07:24:34 PM »
On Monday (Jan. 10), the governor signed the bill (A2265/S3771) requiring NJ Standardbred racetracks that have sports wagering licenses to hold a minimum of 151 race dates, with limited exceptions.
Currently the Big M has only 90 days scheduled and Freehold only 85 days. Horsemen must be thrilled!

  Yes, this is great news for the industry. More 5-6-7 horse fields, and best of all, more amateur races. I am certain the mismanagement at the Pig M is thrilled with the idea of trying to fill another 61 day's worth of cards. Another benefit is that the welfare the whoresmen receive for the purses from the state gets stretched out to cover more dates. Meaning lower purses for the whoresmen. great news for the industry, indeed.

     Sincerely, Silent One

The law requires 151 days of harness racing in a year COMBINING the Meadowlands and Freehold dates. There will be little change to each track's schedule going forward. The obvious concern long term were tracks phasing out racing  and having just sports betting
