Meadowlands now taking payments on Governor's Cup, Three Diamonds
February 07, 2019
« Return to News
In response to Tuesday's announcement regarding the cancellation of the Governor's Cup and Three Diamonds stakes several of last year's contributing sponsors have indicated that they would renew their support for the 2019 season.
As a result and with the February 15 deadline looming, The Meadowlands will accept nomination payments on those stakes while continuing to seek sponsorships. A decision on the fate of the stakes will then be made by early March.
The unfortunate truth is that the entire stakes sponsorship program is down significantly from 2018 and the purse supplement granted by the NJ Legislature does not allocate any funds for the Grand Circuit stakes.
The Meadowlands welcomes those who may be interested in becoming stakes sponsors for 2019. Please contact Vice President of Sponsorships Sales Jason Hall who may be reached via email at JHall@TiogaDowns.com or by phone at 607-972-6526. (Meadowlands)
