With live racing running through Sunday, Oct. 6, Monmouth Park has plenty of reasons to visit the racetrack between now and meet’s-end.

            The New Jersey Thoroughbred Festival returns to Monmouth on Saturday, Sept. 21, featuring the best runners bred in the Garden State.  All paid admissions will receive a free cooler bag, while supply lasts.

            One week later the food trucks are back for the first-ever Food Trucktoberfest on Saturday, Sept. 28.  Enjoy food from the best food trucks from across the state as well an authentic German beer garden and live Bavarian music.

            In addition to the festivals, Monmouth will also play host to the $200 Monmouth/Woodbine Handicapping contest on Sunday, Sept. 15.  The top two finishers will earn an all-expense paid round-trip to Las Vegas and a seat in the 2014 DRF/NTRA National Handicapping Championship.

            Finally, on closing day, Oct. 6, it’s Fan Appreciation Day with free general parking and free Grandstand or half-price Clubhouse admission.

            Live cards will be offered on Saturdays and Sundays through the meet’s-end, with gates opening at 11:30 a.m.  First post is schedule for 12:50 p.m., with the exception of Oct. 5 and 6, when first post shifts to 12:45 p.m.
