Giwner writes that “According to prominent Standardbred owner Howard Taylor, one of 33 names mentioned in a November 3 release, and corroborated by Hambletonian Society President John Campbell, Taylor’s horses will be prohibited from entering any races at the Jeff Gural-operated tracks except the Hambletonian, Hambletonian Oaks and Hambletonian Maturity. Gural, who serves as Meadowlands president and CEO, additionally confirmed that the entire excluded group will be treated similarly.”
