Meadowlands Racetrack is a horse-racing track in East Rutherford, New Jersey, United States. It opened in 1976, at 1 Racetrack

History

The Meadowlands Racetrack is currently referred to as Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment. It is located in East Rutherford, New Jersey, United States, opened in 1976, and operated by New Meadowlands Racetrack LLC, and Jeff Gural as its CEO and chairman. It is famous in the region as “The Big M”, and most of its races are night. In 1977, it was noted for its use of the slogan “Racing with the Moon”, originally popularized in 1941 by bandleader Vaughn Monroe. With its sweeping curves and wide stretches, the “Big M” has been known for exceptional times for harness racing. Autumn has been dedicated to the thoroughbreds, while the rest features standardbreds or harness horses.

Meadowlands Racetrack held its first-ever harness race on September 1, 1976, while thoroughbred racing commenced on September 6, 1977. The new Hambletonian race format was introduced in 1992. Then in December 2011, the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority privatized the racetrack to Jeffrey Gural. By July 14, 2018, the sportsbook opened under the branding of FanDuel, a daily fantasy sports service recently acquired by the company.
