Monmouth Park To Open For Fans July 2

Monmouth Park was forced to close to fans, like many businesses, when restrictions were put into place to slow the spread of COVID-19. That was back on March 16.

As part of New Jersey’s Stage 2 reopening plan, Governor Phil Murphy gave approval for Monmouth Park to open it’s doors to simulcast wagering and sports betting at the William Hill Sports Book on Thursday, July 2.

The racetrack located in Oceanport will also open for its 75th season of live racing on Friday, July 3. The facility will be required to limit operation to 25 percent capacity.

“We’re grateful for Gov. Murphy’s leadership throughout this pandemic and look forward to getting back to some semblance of business as usual in these times of a new normal,” said Dennis Drazin, Chairman and CEO of Darby Development LLC, operators of the racetrack. “We know our fans are as eager to return to Monmouth Park as we are to have them back.”

The 37-day live Monmouth Park meet will run from Friday, July 3, through Sunday, Sept. 27. Post time on Fridays will be 5 p.m. (except for Sept. 4 when it will be 12:50 p.m.). Saturday and Sunday post times will be 12:50 p.m., except Haskell Day on July 18, when the first race goes at noon.

Monmouth Park continues to be a Jersey Shore area attraction, drawing fans of all ages in a family friendly environment.
