Charities Benefit From Outstanding Drives

Smart As Hill winning at The Meadowlands

The early results are in for Meadowlands Racetrack’s Outstanding Drive of the Weekend fan polling conducted on social media.

Each Monday following the weekend of racing, The Meadowlands posts a poll on X (the platform formerly known as Twitter) asking fans to vote for their favourite drive from the past weekend. The poll runs for 24 hours with an option to vote for a drive either submitted by a fan or selected from Big M TV team and management. The winning driver receives a $500 donation to the charity of their choice, courtesy of Jeff Gural and The Meadowlands.

In the month of March and first week of April, there were five different drivers who won the poll. The winners and their charity of choice are listed below.

  • March 8: John Calabrese / Allindotime – Trot Trot Standardred
  • March 16: David Miller / Buddy Earl – Make A Wish
  • March 22: Brett Beckwith / Smart As Hill – New Vocations
  • March 30: Yannick Gingras / Red Right Hand – New Vocations
  • April 5: Vicki Stratton / Marty Monkhouser A – South Jersey Breast Cancer Coalition

Big M TV and management will select at least two outstanding drives from the weekend to include in the poll. Fans can suggest a drive to be included in the poll via X. If that drive is included in the poll, the fan will receive a $25 betting voucher valid at the Meadowlands (for those 18+, random drawing used if multiple fans suggest the same drive). If sending a suggestion, email [email protected] by 10 a.m. on Monday morning.

The winning drive will be announced every Tuesday afternoon on the Meadowlands social media platforms.
