Monmouth Park | Sarah Andrew

FOX Sports will be the television home for Monmouth Park's 2024 racing season, which opens May 11 under a new partnership announced Monday by the New Jersey track and the New York Racing Association.

In addition to the expansion in television coverage, NYRA Bets will become the title sponsor of the $1-million GI Haskell S. and the Pegasus S. Monmouth's signature race, the NYRA Bets Haskell S. will be run July 20. The NYRA Bets Pegasus S., the traditional local prep for the Haskell, will be contested June 15.

America's Day at the Races, the acclaimed national telecast produced by NYRA in partnership with FOX Sports, will provide live coverage of Monmouth racing from May 11 through July 7. The on-site broadcast team will include Paul LoDuca, Laffit Pincay, III, and Rajiv Maragh.

Beginning with the July 11 opening of the 2024 summer meet at Saratoga Race Course, select stakes races from Monmouth Park will be broadcast on Saratoga Live, FOX Sports' flagship horse racing show.

“We've always had a great relationship with NYRA and this partnership takes it further across multiple television and sponsorship channels, including our biggest day with the NYRA Bets Haskell S.,” said Bill Knauf, Monmouth Park's vice president of business operations. “We look forward to the synergy between Monmouth Park and NYRA and the great exposure that FOX Sports can provide for our races this summer.”

As part of the new agreement, Monmouth Park will be featured in NYRA's Cross Country Pick 5 wager on all live race days.

“This partnership will ensure that racing from Monmouth Park is easily accessible to racing fans and bettors across the country,” said Tony Allevato, NYRA Chief Revenue Officer. “Monmouth is a summertime destination home to historic races each year, which is why we are thrilled to be a major part of two big days on the Jersey Shore.”
