Want to get away for the day. Try racing at the Jersey Shore. Friendly place, easy parking. Well kept and nice place to relax, try to win a few dollars and get a good meal. All at Monmouth Park, a hidden gem at the shore.

I have long been a fan of this place, returning 30+ years after my first (and only other) visit. It's near the Jersey Shore, so it's not as hot as most tracks in the East. The food options in the area are plentiful (if not...More

Our dinner group got together for a day at the races followed by our quarterly out to dinner meeting. Had a fun day and almost broke even. Overall loss was $2 based on Admission, parking and Program vs. winnings.

I didn't sit there. We were in the upper grandstand,which is shaded, on the finish line. Although the day was quite hot, we were cool, and the view was perfect.
