Food Trucks and Raspberries
Food Truck Mash-Up is coming to Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment as part of Jerseyfest on Saturday, May 31 from 5pm until 11:00pm. Being 10,000 people attended last year's affair at a county park with limited parking, it should be a big night at the Meadowlands. If exploring the culinary delights of chefs who own their own food trucks is your thing, it is a can't miss event.
Raspberries to the ORC for their conclusions regarding the March 27 accident at Flamboro Downs which ended up with no changes to procedures as a result of an investigation of the affair. For those who may not recall, this was the accident where a horse turned around after an accident and hit another horse head-on resulting in both horses being euthanized. One would have hoped the ORC would have issued guidelines declaring such races as no contests but apparently, the ORC fears the refunding of wagers. I guess it will require a serious injury or worse of a high profile participant before the ORC changes the rules.
