Meadowlands Annual Charity Handicapping Contest Set For Dec. 4

Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment is seeking local New Jersey charities interested in having a night at the races for a good cause in the second annual Charity Handicapping Contest, scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 4, 2021.

The Charity Handicapping Contest is a free handicapping contest open to 501C3 organizations. The Contest offers a $15,000 total donation/prize pool, with all ten charities receiving a donation. Prizes will be awarded as follows: 1st Place: $5,000, 2nd Place: $3,000, 3rd Place: $2,000, 4th Place: $1,500, 5th Place: $1,000, 6th-10th: $500

For the Charity Handicapping Contest, organizations will select one (1) horse in 10 designated Meadowlands live races. The organizations will amass a mythical bankroll if their selection officially finishes first, second or third in the designated race. Official $2 WPS (Win, Place, Show) payoffs will be added to the mythical bankroll. Official race results will serve as the order of finish. The organization that accumulates the highest mythical bankroll is the winner.

The inaugural Charity Handicapping Contest winner in 2019 was the Act Now Foundation which raises awareness and educates communities about Alzheimer’s disease.

“This charity contest allows us the opportunity to help our local community,” said Jason Settlemoir, COO and GM of Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment. “We saw the positive impact our first charity contest had in 2019 and we knew we wanted to support our community again this year.”

Participating organizations will also have the opportunity to make winner’s circle presentations and be featured on the track’s jumbotron.
