We are a month away from the debut of the 2013-2014 meet at Meadowlands Racing and Entertainment (nice to stop saying 'New' Meadowlands) and the winter late closing series have been announced with a race to honor 'Buddy' Gilmour.

Scott Zeron has indicated he is heading for the Meadowlands effective November 23, the start of the new meet.
