The draw for the last weekend of racing for the 2014 Championship Meet at the Meadowlands will be the standard procedure of entering by 9 a.m. on Monday (July 28) for the Friday (Aug. 1) card and by 9 a.m. on Tuesday for (July 29) Saturday's Hambletonian card.
In the interest of having the strongest possible line-up of races for Saturday, a few of the races may be used on either day. These races are designated by an asterisk on the condition sheet. For this reason the Friday draw won't be finalized and made public until Tuesday. The scratches and driver changes for both days will be due and final by 10 a.m. on Wednesday, July 30.
The actual post position draw for the Hambletonian, Hambletonian Oaks and John Cashman Jr Memorial trot will be conducted on Tuesday afternoon at the Hambletonian draw press conference in Victory Sports Bar in The Meadowlands grandstand. That will be followed by the third annual Charity Casino Night to benefit the Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame and the Standardbred Retirement Foundation. (Meadowlands)
