While eliminations for the Maple Leaf Trot at Mohawk are scheduled for Friday, July 11, the Meadowlands will offer a leg of the TVG Open trot for Saturday, July 12. The reason is to provide a race for the trotters that week if the Maple Leaf does not require eliminations.
The draw for both races will be on Tuesday, July 8 with The Meadowlands box closing at 9:00 am and Mohawk taking entries until 10:30 am. If you desire to race in the TVG Open if there are no Maple Leaf elims, you must enter your horse for both races with each Racing Office by the deadline. If the Maple Leaf does have elimination races, the TVG Open trot will be cancelled as the conditions state. No points toward the TVG Final will be awarded if the race is cancelled.
