Monmouth Cards Eleven Races for Opener

Oceanport, N.J. -- Monmouth Park opens this Saturday, May 14, with an 11-race program attracting a total of 89 entries.

 

Topping Saturday’s card is the $75,000 Decathlon Stakes for three year olds and upward, which attracted seven entrants, including Ben Perkins Sr.’s Wildcat Brief, a stakes winner last summer at Monmouth Park.

 

The six furlong Decathlon is the first of this year’s stakes events, which includes 15 graded races.  Centerpiece of Monmouth’s summer as always will be the $1 million Haskell Invitational, which has its 44th running on Sunday, July 31.

 

Monmouth’s Grade 1 turf race, the $750,000 United Nations Stakes, will highlight Fourth of July weekend when it is renewed for the 58th time on Saturday, July 2.

 

Gates will open at 11:30 a.m. and first post is set for 12:50 p.m. every day except Haskell Day, July 31, when the gates open at 10 a.m. and first post will be 12 noon.

           

Wildcat Brief, a 5-year-old by Forest Wildcat, enters the Decathlon off six months rest.  Following his win in the Icecapade at Monmouth on Sept. 5, 2010, he went on to finish third in the Grade 1 Vosburgh at Belmont and then fifth in the Grade 3 Bold Ruler on Oct. 30.  Jockey C. H. Marquez Jr. has the call on Wildcat Brief, who is trained by the owner’s son, Ben Perkins Jr.
