Sportech Racing, a division of Sportech PLC, announced it has entered into an agreement with Darby Development, manager and operator of Monmouth Park, to provide pari-mutuel wagering technology and services to Monmouth and Favorites at Woodbridge off-track wagering facility, both in New Jersey.
Monmouth Park, home of the Haskell Invitational Stakes (gr. I), has been a Sportech Racing customer for 13 years under a contract with the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority.
