Meadowlands racing returns, the fall meet previously held races such as the Grey Ghost Starter Handicap.
All-turf Thoroughbred racing will return to Meadowlands this fall when the "Big M" hosts the first of 10 days of racing action beginning Oct. 11.
 
The short Thoroughbred meet will feature six races per card and the Jersey Shore Six, which debuted at Monmouth Park earlier this year. The calendar calls for live racing on Fridays and Saturdays through Nov. 2, with Monday cards Oct. 14 and Oct. 28.  Post time for the fall Thoroughbred meet will be 2:15 p.m. EDT.
 
The Meadowlands meet comes on the heels of the current Monmouth meet, which wraps up Oct. 6. Monmouth will race on Saturdays and Sundays through the end of its meet.
 
With the expected grand opening of the new Meadowlands grandstand/clubhouse when harness racing returns in late November, the 2013 fall Thoroughbred meet will be the last in the current grandstand, which opened for business in 1976.
