April 15 is the last chance for New Jersey-sired 2- and 3-year-old pacers and trotters to be kept eligible to all 2013 New Jersey Sires Stakes pari-mutuel racing programs.
The NJSS Premier Division is scheduled to begin in May for 3 year olds at the Meadowlands. The 2-year-old Premier Division will start in late June. The Green Acres Division for 2 and 3 year olds will take place from August through October at Freehold Raceway.
Horse owners are reminded that the April 15 second sustaining payments for the Premier Division this year are $500 for both 2 and 3 year olds. Also due are $150 Green Acres Division payments for 2 and 3 year-olds. The second sustaining payments must be made in order to keep horses eligible for all 2013 NJSS races.
NJSS also notes that horse owners are encouraged to use certified mail and that no billing notices will be sent and no late payments will be accepted.
Checks should be made payable in U. S. funds to NJSS, P.O. Box 330, Trenton, N.J. 08625. (NJSS)
