Following its Friday, Aug. 16, card, The Meadows Racetrack & Casino will be dark for just over two weeks to allow for track maintenance and refurbishing. The track's race book will remain open for simulcast viewing and wagering throughout the hiatus. Since it's the final program of the current meeting, the Pick 5, Pick 4 and last Superfecta on the card all are "must-pays.” First post is 6:55 pm.
When The Meadows resumes live racing on Tuesday, Sept. 3, it will introduce a new schedule that features afternoon cards almost exclusively. Generally, the track will race each Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, with first post at 12:55 PM.
For the balance of 2013, only two evening programs are scheduled: Friday, Sept. 13, when The Meadows hosts Pennsylvania Sires Stakes championships and consolations for each 3-year-old division, and Saturday, Oct. 5, when The Meadows again will serve as the site for all eight Pennsylvania Fairs championships. Post time for those cards is 6:55 PM. (The Meadows)
