Monmouth Park Launches “Haskell @ Home” Campaign, Bringing Race Day Experience To Fans Nationally

July 16, 2020

For the first time ever, Monmouth Park Racetrack will share the Haskell Day experience with racing fans across the country through “Haskell @ Home” – an initiative aimed at spreading the Haskell celebration around the nation.

Information on the Haskell field, fashion advice, do-it-yourself food and drink recipes, and much more can all be found at

The Grade 1 race, the annual centerpiece of the Monmouth Park meet, is Saturday, July 18.

In addition to being one of summer’s biggest races for 3-year-olds, the Haskell is annually one of the biggest events on the Jersey Shore, centered around world-class racing, fashion, and family fun. Haskell @ Home brings the thrill and excitement of Monmouth’s premier race to fans everywhere.

By using #HaskellatHome and #HaskellBestDressed on Facebook and Instagram, fans are encouraged to dress to impress and to show off their Haskell @ Home festivities for the chance to have their picture featured on Monmouth Park’s social media as well as the NBC Haskell broadcast that will run from 5 to 6 p.m.

Fans can also enjoy a Summer Wind – the official drink of the Haskell – from the comfort of home, as well as Monmouth Park’s grilled Mexican street corn and grilled ribeye steak sandwich. Recipes are featured online. Haskell fans can purchase a commemorative 2020 Haskell hat through the Monmouth Park online store. There’s even a recommended playlist of Haskell @ Home tunes.

Fans are additionally encouraged to “like” Monmouth Park on Facebook for a week of behind-the-scenes content leading up to Saturday’s $1 million race.

Across the country, Saturday’s Haskell card, featuring five graded stakes, will be televised live on TVG before switching to NBC starting at 5 p.m.
