Seven Stakes Lined Up On Haskell Undercard

(from Monmouth Park report)
Seven stakes, including two graded events, will be featured on the undercard Sunday as Monmouth Park makes Haskell Day 2006 a very special event.

The $1 million Haskell Invitational Presented by Vonage is the star attraction Sunday, but the other stakes events on the 14-race card will provide fans with a wide variety of wagering options. The first race is set to go at noon.

Topping the undercard stakes are a pair of $150,000 turf events, the Taylor Made Matchmaker (gr. IIIT) for fillies and mares at 1 1/8 miles and the Oceanport Stakes (gr. IIIT) for 3-year-olds at 1 1/16 miles.

The Taylor Made Matchmaker, which drew a field of eight, is part of the Emirates Airline Filly and Mare Turf Division. It will be featured on the Road to the Breeders' Cup World Championships on ESPN.

The Oceanport, with 12 entered, will be presented as the ninth race and features stakes winners Hotstufanthensome and Icy Atlantic.

The top ungraded race of the day will be the $100,000 Teddy Drone Stakes, carded as the 10th event. The six-furlong test drew a field of eight, headed by Joey P., who has never lost a sprint at Monmouth.

Among the other stakes on the card are the $100,000 Regret Stakes for fillies and mares at six furlongs, the $100,000 Jersey Derby for 3-year-olds at 1 1/6 miles on the turf, and the $100,000 Lady's Secret Stakes for fillies and mares at 1 1/16 miles.
