Meadowlands Program to Include More Info on Layoff Horses

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

The Meadowlands Racetrack program will now include enhanced information on horses showing no race lines for three weeks or more.  


In the comment section for each race, those horses with 21 days or more away from racing will have some explanation of the reason for the inactivity and remarks on their level of preparedness for the upcoming race, provided by the trainer. Much like an NFL “Team Report” that indicates why a player missed practice or a game, this report will provide bettors with a little more information that they would not normally find in the past performances. 


 For simulcast bettors, the layoff report will be posted as a TV Graphic on our nightly broadcast. Additionally, the layoff report will be posted on The Meadowlands Twitter Account and Facebook page. 

We hope this information will be helpful and we encourage all trainers to make this information available and as accurate as possible for our customers handicapping. 


 These comments will be recorded by the Meadowlands Race Office and offered without edit or opinion by Meadowlands officials.
