Dave Little joins the team at The Meadowlands.

Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment is pleased to announce the hiring of veteran racing journalist Dave Little as the track’s new morning-line oddsmaker and track handicapper.

Little comes to the Meadowlands with four decades of experience as a racing writer, announcer, and handicapper, most recently working as the racing editor at The New York Daily News.

Little’s main responsibility will be to create the track’s morning-line odds and write the handicapping comments that appear in the racing program and on the Meadowlands website. Little will also appear on the Meadowlands television broadcast and fill in as the on-site host on TVG Network in addition to writing news releases and features for the media relations staff.

"I enjoyed my many years in the newspaper industry, but was looking for a change,” said Little. “To get the chance to work at the Meadowlands, and take on the challenge that comes with morning-line odds making, is something I am looking forward to."

“Adding a talent at the Meadowlands the likes of Dave Little is a huge benefit,” said Meadowlands CEO/GM Jason M. Settlemoir. “Dave has been around harness racing forever and adding his level of expertise will only enhance our already strong racing product.

Little will begin making the morning line and writing the handicapping comments for this weekend’s racing programs.

Live racing takes place Friday and Saturday nights with a 7:15 p.m. post time.
