The action at the Meadowlands has heated up in a big way of late, and the trend continued Saturday night. Wagering on the 13-race card pushed past the $3-million mark for the second time this year as $3,026,740 was put in play.

The other time betting went past the magic $3-million mark was on Jan. 3, when $3,069,967 was pushed through the windows.

Saturday night got off to a good start, as in the first race, $250,382 in action was taken. A total of $71,830 was pumped into the 50-cent Pick-5 pool, outdoing the previous 2020 best of $63,798 (on Jan. 4) by 12.5 percent.

Betting on the 50-cent Pick-4 also reached a season high with a total pool of $117,502, which is just over $8,000 more than was pushed through the windows on Jan. 3. Total wagering on the eighth race – which is the start of the Pick-4 – was a night-best $306,163.

Betting has now surpassed the $2.5-million mark for three straight racing programs at the Big M.
