MEADOWLANDS ANNOUNCES ELIGIBLE TRAINERS FOR REWARDS PROGRAM

MANALAPAN, NJ – October 29, 2014 – Twenty-two trainers are eligible for a Meadowlands rewards program that goes into effect when racing resumes on November 14, 2014.

In March, the Meadowlands and the Standardbred Breeders & Owners Association of New Jersey announced that entries would be tracked to determined eligibility for the program.

These trainers qualified for the program by meeting one of two criteria: (1) Accumulating more than 60 starts at the Meadowlands from March 28, 2014 through August 2, 2014; or (2) Having at least 20 starts at the Meadowlands from March 28, 2014 through August 2, 2014 where the trainer’s horses raced at the Meadowlands more than all other tracks combined over that period of time.

The eligible trainers, in alphabetical order:

Eric Abbatiello
Tony Alagna
Ronald Burke
Mark Capone
Ron Coyne Jr.
Jonas Czernyson
Nikolas Drennan
Steve Elliott
Mark Ford
Mark Harder
Joseph Holloway
Richard Johnson
Douglas Lewis
Joseph Martin
Julie Miller
Larry Remmen
Christopher Ryder
Mark Silva
Jeffrey Smith
Ake Svanstedt
Jimmy Takter
Linda Toscano


“I want to thank the Meadowlands for implementing this program,” said SBOANJ President Thomas Luchento. “I am proud of the position they have taken to reward all trainers that remain steadfast in their conviction that the Meadowlands is the best place to race in the world. This program rewards loyalty, and the SBOANJ is a proud supporter of that.”

“I appreciate the loyalty these trainers have shown to the Meadowlands throughout this past racing season,” said Meadowlands Chairman Jeff Gural. “I am happy that they will be given every opportunity to get all of their horses raced at the Meadowlands when we reopen on November 14. Hopefully, this information will prove beneficial to all the owners and trainers that are heading to Harrisburg for the upcoming Standardbred Mixed Sale.”

The rewards program will be applied to overnight races that are classified as B-2 or below as well as all non-winners of 1, 2, 3 or 4 pari-mutuel races. The program does not apply to early or late closers, nor does it apply to stakes events.

Any horsemen with questions can contact the Meadowlands Race Office or the SBOANJ.
