“Firsts” will loom huge come Saturday as the New Meadowlands Racetrack starter leads an 11-horse Hambletonian field into action.
A test run for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade took place at the Meadowlands Racetrack in East Rutherford, N.J. Saturday.
“We appreciate Governor Christie’s leadership and commitment to the Super Bowl,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said. “We look forward to working closely with the state to help present a memorable week for our fans, teams, and partners, and media from around the world.”
Talks are ongoing between the Christie administration and standardbred breeders about saving horse racing at the Meadowlands.
