Monmouth Park’s Final Saturday Card Of 2019 Features Carryovers In Pick 5 And Pick 6

September 26, 2019

In addition to the four stakes races that will highlight Monmouth Park’s final Saturday program of the 2019 meet handicappers will have the added inducement of carryovers in both the Pick 5 and the Jersey Shore Pick 6 on the 10-race card.

The racing will be complemented by Oktoberfest, which will feature an array of food trucks, a beer stein holding contest sponsored by 95.9 The WRAT and live music by Jingleheimer from noon to 4 p.m. “On the Green.”

Saturday’s Pick 5 carryover, which starts in the first race, is $24,028.

The Jersey Shore Pick 6, which requires a single winning ticket to take down the jackpot pool, stands at $28,329. The Pick 6 will start in the fifth race and will include all four stakes races.

The stakes lineup for Saturday features the $100,000 Violet Stakes for fillies and mares for 3-year-olds and up at a mile and a sixteenth on the grass; the $100,000 Rainbow Heir Stakes for 3-year-olds and up at 5½ furlongs on the turf; the $100,000 Mr. Prospector Stakes for 3-year-olds and up at six furlongs, and the $100,000 Regret Stakes for fillies and mares three and up at six furlongs.

First race post time on Saturday is 1:15 p.m.

Following the card on Sunday, Sept. 29, Monmouth Park will race on Sundays only throughout the month of October, with all-turf cards shifting to the Meadowlands in East Rutherford on Fridays and Saturdays throughout October (with the exception of Saturday, Oct. 19, when racing moves to Far Hills for a day of steeplechase events).

First race post time at the Meadowlands on Fridays and Saturdays in October will be 12:30 p.m.
