The Haskell is a part of the Breeders' Cup Challenge "Win and You're In" series, with the race winner receiving an automatic spot with fees paid for the Breeders' Cup Classic on Saturday, November 7.
In addition, this year's 53rd edition of the Haskell offers the added inducements of points for the Kentucky Derby which takes place on Saturday, September 5. A total of 170 points will be available for a chance to make the starting gate in the Kentucky Derby, with 100 going to the Haskell winner, 40 to the runner-up, 20 to the third-place finisher and 10 to the fourth-place horses.
With the TVG Haskell Stakes already offering a $1 million purse, points for the Kentucky Derby and "Win and You're In" status for the Breeders' Cup Classic, Monmouth Park is sweetening the pot even more for its showcase race.
The track announced today that it will offer a $1 million bonus this year to any horse that sweeps the Haskell Stakes, the Kentucky Derby and the Breeders' Cup Classic.
The Haskell will be contested for the 53rd time on July 18 when it headlines a stakes-filled program. The $3 million Kentucky Derby has been re-scheduled to Saturday, Sept. 5, from its traditional first Saturday in May slot due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The $7 million Breeders' Cup Classic will be held on Saturday, Nov. 7, at Keeneland.
In 2015 American Pharoah swept the three races en route to his Horse of the Year title.
For the first time in Haskell history, the top four finishers will earn points (100-40-20-10) for the Kentucky Derby.
Monmouth Park's 75th season gets underway on Friday, July 3.
The 2020 running of the Haskell Invitational marks the 53rd renewal of the race named for the first president and chairman of the Monmouth Park Jockey Club, Amory Lawrence Haskell. Amory L. Haskell was born in New York City in 1893. Following his graduation from Princeton University in 1916, he began a business career with the New Jersey Zinc Company. That was interrupted by two years with the Naval Aviation Service in World War I.
After his tour of duty, Haskell joined the General Motors Corporation and rose to the position of vice-president in charge of the company's export division. He left General Motors to form Triplex Safety Glass Company and was president and chairman of the board when he sold it.
Shortly before World War II, after several years of intense lobbying in which Haskell played a prominent role, an amendment to the New Jersey State Constitution was approved by referendum, legalizing pari-mutuel wagering for Thoroughbred and Standardbred racing. Haskell then organized a group of prominent New Jersey residents to build a modern Thoroughbred racetrack in Monmouth County. Appointed president and chairman of Monmouth Park Jockey Club in 1945, he guided that organization through its opening in 1946 and continued at the helm until his death on April 12, 1966.
In 1968, the Monmouth Park Directors honored his memory with the Amory L. Haskell Handicap, a race for older horses. In 1981, the Haskell name was transferred to a mile and an eighth invitational for the nation's top three-year-olds. As a tribute to the man honored by this race, Amory L. Haskell's daughters, Hope Haskell-Jones and Anne Haskell-Ellis, present the Haskell trophy each year.
