Carlo's Bakery of Hoboken, New Jersey, the setting for the hit TLC reality show 'Cake Boss,' will unveil a cake commemorating 30 years of Hambletonian champions at the Meadowlands Racetrack on Hambetonian Day, Saturday, August 6.

The cake will be on display throughout Hambletonian Day on the Paddock Level at the Meadowlands and some lucky fans will receive the chance to taste the bakery's creation. When fans pass through the turnstiles that morning, they will receive a random coupon* representing the saddlecloth of one of the 2011 Hambletonian contenders. Once the race is over, fans that have the winning horse's number will receive instructions on how to redeem their coupon for a piece of the celebration cake.

Mauro Castano, the right-hand man to master baker Buddy Valastro, will give the media a preview of the creation at the Hambletonian post position draw and press conference on Tuesday, August 2. Each week, Carlo's Bakery turns out thousands of wedding cakes, specialty cakes and pastries. Their award-winning confections have been featured in books, newspapers and television, including the Food Network and most notably, The Learning Channel.

Harness racing's most coveted prize, the $1.5 million Hambletonian, moved to its current home at the Meadowlands Racetrack in East Rutherford, New Jersey in 1981. The must-see event attracts a crowd of over 25,000 fans each year that turn out to watch the sport's richest race and enjoy the country fair that surrounds it. Each year, the Hambletonian is simulcast to 600 wagering outlets across North America and Europe. The 2011 Hambletonian and companion $750,000 Hambletonian Oaks for fillies will be televised live on NBC from 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. EST.

Gates will open at 9:30 a.m. on Hambletonian Day at the Meadowlands. First-race post time is 11:30 a.m. Surf to for more information.
