Meadowlands cancels Friday card due to heavy rain


Meadowlands Racetrack canceled its Friday card consisting of six turf races due to heavy rain that hit northern New Jersey overnight and was expected to continue through early afternoon, the track announced Friday morning.

The Meadowlands remained open for simulcasting.

Saturday’s six-race card marks the final day of live racing for the all-turf “Monmouth-at-Meadowlands” meet. The track’s Jersey Six wager, which has a carryover of $2,638.07, must be paid out Saturday to winning tickets that select the most winners on the card.
