The Meadowlands Race Office is communicating with horsemen on various racing related functions by text. An agreement with Sumotext enables the office to send mass text messages to all horsemen that have signed up for the service with the push of a button.
That service came into play last Wednesday, when a class for Saturday was short a few horses. A text message was sent out to the 550 subscribers and within minutes horsemen responded. Rather than be dropped, that race is on the card with a 10-horse field.
