Fall Meet schooling to start

Pre-stake schooling for the NGA Fall Meet is set to start this Sunday (Oct. 4) at 8:30 a.m. at the NGA Track.

Schooling will continue the five following mornings, through Friday, Oct. 9, when official races will be drawn for the first round.

“We’re now anticipating somewhere between 450 and 500 pups for the Fall Meet,” Executive Director Gary Guccione said Friday morning. “That’s pretty close to the numbers we’ve seen at the last two fall meets.”

Official racing will start at 9 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 12 with first-round races for the younger pups. The older pups will see their first action the following morning (Tuesday, Oct. 13). The finals will be at 9 a.m. on Thursday and Friday, Oct. 15 and 16.

Numerous other activities, including Hall of Fame inductions, social events and the concluding meet event–the auction–are all part of the week’s activities. A complete schedule is on the NGA website.

Schooling results will be posted on the NGA website each day following the races.
