New Jersey's Monmouth Park has inked a multi-year deal with SeatGeek, a mobile-focused ticket platform, to serve as its exclusive ticketing partner. Monmouth's racing meet kicks off May 28 and continues through Sept. 26. Although general admission is free throughout the season–excluding Haskell Day–SeatGeek will handle tickets for box seats, parterre rentals, the Dining Club, the Lady's Secret Café, and the picnic buffet. SeatGeek will also handle Haskell tickets for the $1 million-race that will be held July 17.
“Monmouth Park is excited to have this long-term partnership with SeatGeek,” said Bill Knauf, Monmouth's vice president of business operations. “Their technology and mobile platform are an ideal fit for Monmouth Park moving forward, especially as we look to move into a more mobile-based space.”
SeatGeek's technology allows fans to sell, receive, and transfer tickets through mobile devices. In addition, groups can transfer tickets to their guests on a mobile device, which eliminates the need for physical tickets.
