‘Crown’ Entrants Test Clear

It has been announced that the New Jersey Racing Commission has cleared the out-of-competition tests screened so far form entrants that are scheduled to participate in the $5.5-million Breeders Crown races this Friday and Saturday at the Meadowlands Racetrack.

This procedure has been routine for nearly a decade in the Hambletonian Society-sponsored and owned Breeders Crown events, as well as the Hambletonian and Hambletonian Oaks.

Earlier this week, samples were drawn from finalists entered throughout New Jersey, and those stabled in other jurisdictions were also tested with the cooperation of the participating horsemen.

All horses must report six hours in advance of race time to a secure stakes barn at the Meadowlands.

All contestants will be post-race tested according to standard NJ Racing Commission procedures and all winners of the Breeders Crown races and randomly chosen horses from each field will be subject to the ‘Super Test’ screening, which detects the broadest array of substances.

The out-of-competition drug testing is used to detect evidence of blood doping, and is a condition of entry for the Breeders Crown, Hambletonian and the Hambletonian Oaks. This testing is in addition to earlier out-of-competition testing done privately by the Meadowlands Racetrack.

First-race post time for both nights is 7:15 p.m.
