Money Multiplier, one of two Chad Brown-trained horses in the field, will look to repeat in Saturday’s Grade 2 Monmouth Stakes at a mile and an eighth on the grass – one of four stakes races on the 13-race card. 

The seven-horse Monmouth Stakes field is an accomplished group, featuring two-time Grade 1 winner Divisidero, Grade 1 winner Force The Pass, Grade 2 winner Projected and Grade 2 winner Frostmourne. 

The Monmouth Stakes will be preceded by the Grade 3 Salvator Mile, the $75,000 Boiling Springs Stakes and the $60,000 John J. Reilly Handicap as Monmouth kicks off a three-day Memorial Day weekend of live racing. 

A guaranteed $150,000 late pick 5 for a single winner will also be offered on Saturday’s card. 

The racing will be complemented by the popular Jersey Shore Food Truck Festival, featuring 45 food trucks, Family Fun Days on Saturday and Sunday and live music all three days. Gates will open at 11 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday to accommodate food enthusiasts and at 11:30 on Monday. Post time for live racing all three days is 12:50 p.m.
