New Surface At Meadowlands

Wednesday, 28th September 2005

And in New Jersey, "horses, jockeys & trainers will experience a new racing surface on September 30 (this Friday) when the Meadowlands begins its 7-week thoroughbred meeting," reported thoroughbredtimes.com. The East Rutherford facility "used more than 11,000 tons of material to produce the new sand, clay & loam surface on its 1-mile main track". Meadowlands director of properties John Chevalier said: "We've taken a number of steps which we think will produce the best possible racing surface for the thoroughbred horsemen. The material we purchased has been double screened to dramatically reduce stones that can show up in racing material." And New Jersey Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association executive director Mike Musto enthused: "I've never seen the racetrack look so good. It looks impeccable, outstanding."
