Popular Dawn Patrol Resumes June 22

Posted Friday, Jun 7, 2013



Monmouth’s popular Dawn Patrol program, which gives fans a glimpse into racing life behind the scenes, is scheduled to resume on Saturday, June 22. It will run through Aug. 25.

            This year, Dawn Patrol will be held on Saturdays and Sundays, starting at 8 a.m. The free morning tour consists of a tram ride through the Monmouth stable area during workout hours, a close-up look at the starting gate, a tour of the jockeys’ room – usually off-limits to the public – and a running commentary on racetrack life by hostess Laurie Lane.

            Dawn Patrol guests can feed carrots to the ponies in the stable area during the tram tour.

            Space is limited and reservations are required. They can be made by calling 732-571-5542 in advance.
