After careful consideration and consultation with various horsemen, The Meadowlands will be suspending its rule limiting a trainer to two horses (other than any horse the trainer has campaigned since the horse’s first start) in the Final of a stakes race.

“There had been concerns voiced to us in the past regarding any trainer having multiple starters in one stakes final,” said Jeff Gural. “But after listening to the view points of several horsemen, we will suspend the rule going forward. In addition, with the horse population continuing to decrease, limiting the number of horses entered into some of our biggest races may not be in the best interest of the Meadowlands as a business. We will monitor this going forward and we certainly reserve the right to bring this rule back with 30 days notice, if we feel it is necessary.”

The suspension of this rule is effective immediately and all trainers should be aware of this when submitting their nominations for the track's stakes events on February 15.
