East Rutherford, NJ --- The Meadowlands and its horsemen will continue to accept donations and pledges for victims of a barn fire at the South Florida Trotting Center last week that killed 12 horses and injured 11 others.

Pledge forms will be available in the Meadowlands paddock during live racing on Friday and Saturday for drivers and trainers that would like to donate a percentage of their earnings. The form is also available on the Meadowlands website by clicking this link.

Other members of the harness racing community or general public are also invited to donate. Those people are invited to write a check made out to “New Meadowlands Racetrack” with “Florida Fire Fund” in the memo. Checks can be mailed to: Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment, Attn: Jennifer Bongiorno, 1 Racetrack Drive, East Rutherford, NJ 07073.

Earlier this winter, the Meadowlands and its horsemen raised more than $30,000 for the victims of another barn fire in Ontario that killed 43 horses.
