« Return to News
Stakes finals, dollar specials and a handicapping tournament highlight the last week of racing before Meadowlands Racetrack’s spring break. The action starts Thursday as 10 of the toughest trotters tussle in the $74,000 Horse and Groom final, while Some Girls Do bids for her second series sweep in the $53,800 Night Styles.
The best bet in racing also starts at just $1. The Saturday Pick Four features a $100,000 guaranteed pool, low 15 percent takeout and average $3,000 payout for a $1 wager.
An estimated $12,000 in prize money is also up for grabs Saturday in the National Harness Handicapping Championship qualifier. The top three finishers are expected to qualify for the 2011 National Harness Handicapping Championship, the only tournament featuring a $50,000 guaranteed prize pool, on July 9 at the Meadowlands. Prize money is paid out to the Top 10, plus players keep their bankrolls. Complete rules available at MeadowlandsRacetrack.com (http://www.meadowlandsracetrack.com/contest_detail.aspx?id=5189).
