Ring In the New Year at the Meadowlands Racetrack

Tuesday, December 28, 2021


The Meadowlands Racetrack closes out the 2021 racing season this Friday, December 31.  Post time is 6:20pm and bettors will have two carryovers to sweeten the pot.  The 20-cent Pick-5 will have a carryover of $38,923 not subject to the already low 15 per cent takeout on the wager. The 20-cent Pick-6 will begin with $6,131 in the pool.

Fans that come out Friday can also grab a free 2022 calendar filled with photos of 2021’s equine stars.

Buffet dining is available for $64.95 and includes a complimentary glass of celebratory champagne for those 21 and older.  The menu features a winter salad with shaved Brussels sprouts, pomegranate seeds, pecans and lemon-champagne vinaigrette.  New York Strip steak is on the carving station with garlic-herb tilapia, cheese ravioli and chicken teriyaki rounding out the main courses.  A “Creole favorites” station is also included and is loaded with delicious jambalaya, red beans and cornbread.  Tiramisu, fresh fruit and homemade cookies then round out the meal.

Reservations can be made by calling 201-The-BigM.

Following live harness racing, an enthralling fireworks display will take place to help ring in 2022.
