In March of this year, the Meadowlands Racetrack announced that it will begin keeping track of trainer’s entries with the purpose of implementing a rewards program which would go into effect on November 14 of this year.

In conjunction with the Standardbred Breeders and Owners Association of New Jersey, the Meadowlands has identified the following trainers as earning entrance into the Rewards Program. These names are strictly alphabetical as each of these trainers shares equal benefits when entering their horses to race at the Meadowlands.

1. Eric Abbatiello
2. Tony Alagna
3. Ron Burke
4. Mark Capone
5. Ron Coyne Jr.
6. Jonas Czernyson
7. Nikolas Drennan
8. Steve Elliott
9. Mark Ford
10. Mark Harder
11. Joe Holloway
12. Richard Johnson
13. Doug Lewis
14. Joseph Martin
15. Julie Miller
16. Larry Remmen
17. Chris Ryder
18. Mark Silva
19. Jeff Smith
20. Ake Svanstedt
21. Jimmy Takter
22. Linda Toscano

The trainers listed above achieved entry in the program by meeting one of two criteria:

1) Accumulating over 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.

“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.
