The Meadows Standardbred Owners Association and The Meadows Racetrack combined efforts for a Live Bankroll Contest during the evening races on Friday, February 27.

The cost to enter was $100, with $50 used as the wagering bankroll. The other $50 went to the prize fund.

The event was a huge success, with over 50 entrants and a prize pool exceeding $2,500.  Rene Stewart was the winner, keeping her bankroll of more than $670 and taking the top prize of $1,275.

The MSOA offered a free buffet dinner for those that registered for the contest, as well as a handicapping seminar before the races with the hosts of Meadows Live, and a racing education seminar with trainers Norm Parker, Ron Burke and Paul Kennedy.
