EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Live harness racing returns to the Meadowlands on Friday, Nov. 13 as the New Jersey track opens its annual Fall/Winter meet.

Racing will take place on Friday and Saturday nights throughout the winter at a new post time of 7 p.m. There will be no racing Christmas Day.

The first 3,500 fans ages 18 and over attending opening night will receive a mystery voucher that can be redeemed and could be worth up to $500, track officials said. All vouchers will be worth at least $2.

Opening weekend continues Saturday, Nov. 14. Fans wagering on-track using self-service machines will have the chance to receive a variety of instant prizes ranging from betting vouchers to food and beverage coupons that will print directly on the self-service machines. The prizes will print out at random intervals after a wager is placed, according to track officials.

“Since the end of Hambletonian Day in August, we have been looking forward to the return of live racing here at Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment,” said Jason M. Settlemoir, CEO and General Manager. “The season starts with some exciting promotions and big-time stakes races that are sure to be must-see events for our fans.”
