Meadowlands and Yonkers Raceway are both harness racing tracks outside of New York City. How busy on any given day often depends upon the weather—and now the economy! You might find better answers at the Yonkers or New York City, New York forums. The Meadowlands track is a short ride from NYC in Secaucus, New Jersey. Someone at that forum might also be helpful. If you’re not into “lottery” slot machines, I would recommend the Meadowlands

Yonkers is generally good on Saturdays...pretty busy, but we were there on Valentine's Day and it was packed! I wouldn't go on a holiday again. There's always a band playing (bar/stage in the middle of the casino).

my grandfather used to be a regular at yonkers a long time ago when it had a reputation for being fixed. i dont know if much as changed, also the track is a little rundown. i agree with the other poster, you are probably better off at the meadowlands, it is a little more upscale, the horses are trotters, if you are looking for harness racing, then go to belmont, i dont know if they race in april, but check out their schedule on the internet.
