Forty-four 3-year-olds were extended invitations Friday to the $1 million betfair.com Haskell Invitational on Sunday, July 29, at Monmouth Park, with juvenile champion Good Magic heading the list of potential starters in the Grade 1 race.
Trained by Chad Brown, Good Magic was the runner-up in the Kentucky Derby. Last year he burst onto the national scene when he captured the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile breaking his maiden in that Grade 1 event en route to his Eclipse Award.
Brown will be seeking his first victory in the Haskell Invitational, the track’s showcase event that is contested at a mile and an eighth.
The list of horses that were extended invitations today by Director of Racing/Racing Secretary John F. Heims, in alphabetical order, is:
Free Drop Billy
My Boy Jack
Still Having Fun
World of Trouble
