East Rutherford, NJ --- The second month of the Meadowlands Racetrack’s Own A Horse promotion gave 10 more fans an inside look at racehorse ownership and the results continue to show there are few thrills like owning a winning horse.

The 10 fans won a combined $5,122 during February with the biggest chunk of that amount coming courtesy of Jacksrluckytoo who won three times during the month for trainer Patti Harmon.

His “owners” for the month were Deborah Schreyer and Richard Curley. Like all of the contestants, they were invited to the track each week when their horse raced, were given an all-access VIP pass to meet their horse and driver in the race paddock, and winner’s circle photos if their horse was lucky enough to win.

“We totally lucked out on getting Jacksrluckytoo,” said Curley, who won $1,859 during the contest. “It was an unbelievable experience and thank you to the Meadowlands.”

Ten new fans have been selected to participate in the contest during March. The Own A Horse promotion will continue to run each month throughout the Meadowlands racing season. Fans may register online by visiting the Own A Horse page on the track’s website.
