Several stakes will see purse boosts in 2022, including the Grade 1 United Nations, which goes from $500,000 to $600,000 and is now double its purse from just two years ago; the Grade 3 Monmouth Cup going from $300,000 to $400,000; the Grade 3 Molly Pitcher going from $250,000 to $400,000; and, the Grade 3 WinStar Matchmaker, moving from $150,000 to $200,000. All of those races, along with the $100,000 Wolf Hill Stakes, will be run on Haskell Day.

In preparation for the July 23rd Haskell program, Monmouth will offer a "Haskell Preview Day" with four stakes events on Saturday, June 18 - Pegasus, Grade 3 Monmouth, Grade 3 Salvator Mile Stakes and Grade 3 Eatontown.

The 20th annual New Jersey Thoroughbred Festival, with three stakes events, will be renewed on Aug. 28, with the $125,000 Charles Hesse III Handicap headlining that card.

The meet will conclude on Sept. 17 with the 3rd running of the $500,000 Nownownow Stakes for 2-year-olds going a mile on turf.

Haskell Invitational History

The 2022 running of the Haskell Invitational marks the 55th 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.
