Management at Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment announced Wednesday morning (March 10) that post time will move to 6:20 p.m., effective Friday, March 19.
“This is in response to our fans who want to bet our entire card but appreciate getting home a little bit earlier,” said Big M chief operating officer and general manager Jason Settlemoir of the track shifting post time 20 minutes later than what has been the norm since Dec. 26. “We have seen solid wagering on our early races that have been taking place in the before 7 p.m. window. Those races have, in effect, replaced the races in the after 11 p.m. window, where wagering had not been as strong when we had our post time at 7:15 p.m.”
Racing will be conducted on the usual Friday and Saturday basis all the way through Hambletonian Day, Saturday, Aug. 7.
Post time for this weekend’s races (March 12-13) will remain 6 p.m.
