Oceanport, N.J. – Led by the $1 million Haskell Invitational on July 29, Monmouth Park has announced a total stakes schedule of $6 million, including 17 graded events for the 2012 racing season.

 

Among the notable changes to the calendar are the return of the Eatontown Stakes (G3) on June 30, the Red Bank Stakes (G3) on July 4 and the Monmouth Cup (G2) on July 7.  Another significant change is the placement of the Molly Pitcher Stakes (G2), which will now be run on Haskell Day.

 

In addition to the Molly Pitcher, Haskell Day will also feature two other graded events (Oceanport and Matchmaker Stakes) as well as three $100,000 stakes races.

 

Getting an upgrade for the 2012 meet is the $200,000 Monmouth Stakes (G2) on June 10, which will once again serve as a prep race for the Grade 1 $500,000 United Nations Stakes on July 7.

 

Not including overnight stakes, the major racing events announced today are:
