Monmouth Park's 2021 season, which concluded Sunday, showed an increase in overall handle from 2020, with $173,511,161 wagered during the 55-day meet compared to $167,511,608 during last year's 44-day meet.

On-track handle was $15,216,978 this year. Last season, which was hampered by attendance restrictions due to the pandemic, had on-track handle of $8,917,436.

The simulcast handle was down slightly from $158,594,172 in 2020 to $158,294,183 this year.

Jockey Paco Lopez took his eighth riding title at the Oceanport oval, while Wayne Potts was the leading trainer. Colts Neck Stables, with 14 winners from 34 starters, was the leading owner.

Thoroughbred racing in New Jersey shifts to the Meadowlands in East Rutherford for the seven-day Monmouth-at- Meadowlands meet starting Oct. 1.
