Travelin Man Headlines Opening Day Card at Monmouth

New Monmouth Park logo
Monmouth Park opens this Saturday, May 11, with a 12-race program attracting a total of 117 entries.

 Topping the day’s card is the $75,000 Decathlon Stakes for 3-year-olds and upward, which features a field of eight, including E. Paul Robsham Stables’ Travelin Man.

 A six-furlong dash, the Decathlon is the first of this year’s stakes events, which includes 16 graded stakes.  As always, the centerpiece of Monmouth’s summer will be the $1 million William Hill Haskell Invitational, which has its 46th running on Sunday, July 28.  Monmouth’s Grade 1 turf race, the $500,000 United Nations Stakes, will be the highlight of the Fourth of July weekend when it’s renewed on Saturday, July 6.

 Gates will open at 11:30 a.m. and first post is set for 12:50 p.m. every day except Haskell Day, when gates will open at 10:00 a.m. and first post will be 12 noon.

 Travelin Man, a 5-year-old by Trippi from the Gone West mare West Side Dancer, captured his last outing, the Sir Shackleton Stakes at Gulfstream on March 30.  The Todd Pletcher trainee has won 5 of his 13 outings.  Thirteen-time Monmouth riding champion Joe Bravo has the call.
