Haskell to be shown on ABC


The $1 million Haskell Invitational at Monmouth Park will be broadcast nationally on ABC from 5 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 1. The telecast will be the first time that the Haskell will have appeared on a major national television network.

In addition to the Haskell, the show will feature the $200,000 Oceanport Stakes for 3-year-olds and up on the turf.

Monmouth Park's 2010 season gets under way on May 22 and runs through Nov. 21. Purses are expected to average nearly $1 million a day through Sept. 11.
