Known popularly in the region as "The Big M", Meadowlands Racetrack is a horse racing track at the MetLife Sports Complex in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

The racetrack held its first-ever harness race on September 1, 1976 while thoroughbred racing started about a year later on September 6, 1977. With the exception of the opening season, thoroughbred races are held on fall, while the rest of the year features standardbreds, or harness horses.

The track is equipped to race at night and most of its races take place after dawn. The world record for a mile by a standardbred set by Holborn Hanover (1:46), was established at the track on August 5, 2006 in a division of the U.S. Pacing Championship.
