Monmouth Park’s first-ever Joes vs. Jocks Mini Golf Festival proved to be a smashing success raising $5,000 for the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund while attracting over 300 people to the track’s new Bluegrass Mini Golf Course.

            Held Friday, July 26 from 6-10pm, the inaugural event served as the official kickoff to William Hill Haskell weekend and featured a night of mini golf with members of the Monmouth Park jockey colony and other track personalities, along with food trucks and a live band.

            “I could not be happier with how the festival turned out,” said Brian Skirka, Monmouth Park’s marketing manager and event coordinator.  “To have such a tremendous response from our jockeys and to have it be so well received by our fans was truly something special.  We were able to raise a lot of money for a great cause and hopefully have created a new Haskell weekend tradition.”

            Among the jockeys who participated in the event were 13-time Monmouth Park leading rider Joe Bravo, 3-time riding champ Elvis Trujillo and 2010 top jock Paco Lopez.

            “On behalf of the Monmouth Park jockeys, I’d like to thank Monmouth Park for putting on such a great event,” Bravo said.  “To see so many of the best fans in racing come out to support a great cause was tremendous.  This was the perfect start to what turned out to be a phenomenal Haskell weekend.”
