Thursday racing back at Big M
« Return to News
The Meadowlands goes live on Thursday nights through the month of December beginning with a nine-race presentation this week.
It's a solid overnight card that includes an intriguing mix of shippers with nearly half of the horses on the bill making their first Big M start, at least in a while. We'll see a lot of that in the coming weeks as tracks in the region shut down for the winter and horsemen are left with fewer options to get raced.
Thursday's card includes a plethora of refugees from the recently closed Plainridge Race Course.
The last three races comprise a "Race for the G-Notes" short series for $7,500 claimers providing the lower end with a chance to earn from the inflated final purse of $12,500 next week.
The horizontal wagers are in place. Be advised that the Pick 4 will be comprised of races 6-9 and carry a $35,000 guaranteed pool for the Thursday card. Program pages are available at a click.
Thursday is Senior's Day with concession discounts for our mature regulars, players club points are doubled and the lead promotion "It's Your Lucky Day" will return one fortunate horseplayer the losing wagers from Friday's live card up to $1,000! Talk about lucky!
Post time is the usual 7:15 p.m. (Meadowlands)
