NYRA Bets, Monmouth Park, and FOX Sports To Partner On Television And Sponsorship deal

by NYRA Press Office

Monmouth Park and the New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) today announced a new partnership establishing FOX Sports as the television home for the Jersey Shore track’s 2024 season, which opens on Saturday, May 11.

In addition to the expansion in television coverage, NYRA Bets becomes the title sponsor of the $1 million, Grade 1 Haskell Stakes and the Pegasus Stakes. The NYRA Bets Haskell Stakes will headline a spectacular card of racing on Saturday, July 20. The NYRA Bets Pegasus Stakes, the traditional local prep for the Haskell, will be contested on Saturday, June 15, as part of Haskell Preview Day.

America’s Day at the Races, the acclaimed national telecast produced by NYRA in partnership with FOX Sports, will provide live coverage of Monmouth racing from May 11 through July 7. The on-site broadcast team will include Paul LoDuca, Laffit Pincay, III, and Rajiv Maragh, among others.

Beginning with the opening of the 2024 summer meet at Saratoga Race Course on July 11, select stakes races from Monmouth Park will be broadcast on Saratoga Live, FOX Sports’ flagship horse racing show featuring wall to wall coverage of the summer meet.

“We’ve always had a great relationship with NYRA and this partnership takes it further across multiple television and sponsorship channels, including our biggest day with the NYRA Bets Haskell Stakes,” said Bill Knauf, Monmouth Park’s vice president of business operations. “We look forward to the synergy between Monmouth Park and NYRA and the great exposure that FOX Sports can provide for our races this summer.”

As part of the new agreement, Monmouth Park will be featured in NYRA’s Cross Country Pick 5 wager on all live race days.

“This partnership will ensure that racing from Monmouth Park is easily accessible to racing fans and bettors across the country,” said Tony Allevato, NYRA Chief Revenue Officer. “Monmouth is a summertime destination home to historic races each year, which is why we are thrilled to be a major part of two big days on the Jersey Shore.”
