The Standardbred Breeders & Owners Association of New Jersey reached an agreement Monday, Nov. 26, with Freehold Raceway for a 110-date meet in 2013. The calendar, which will be finalized and released soon, includes racing in the months of January and February.
Initially, Freehold had requested only 90 dates and the track's proposed calendar did not include winter racing. The SBOANJ contested both the total number of dates and the lack of racing in January and February.
The amended Freehold dates are subject to approval by the New Jersey Racing Commission at its November 28 meeting in Trenton. (SBOANJ)
