Heyden has seen them all, as a fan and as the Meadowlands Racetrack’s statistician, television personality and unofficial historian. Heyden, inducted in the Communicator’s Corner of the Harness Racing Hall of Fame last weekend, took a look back in the days before the 2013 Meadowlands Pace unfolds on Saturday night.
