🐴 Monmouth Park Racetrack is now open for the 2023 season

🐴 There are special Mother's Day events and festivities taking place on Sunday

🐴 There are several big horse races coming up and sports betting opportunities

The horse racing season is underway at Monmouth Park Racetrack and after opening day ceremonies on Saturday, it's time for a special Mother's Day celebration.

If you've never been to a horse race in person or experienced what it's like to be among 40,000 or more people all cheering at the same time -- perhaps for different reasons being a horse you're hoping wins -- then take time out to do so this spring and summer.

Monmouth Park Racetrack presents that golden opportunity for some family fun with all kinds of events across the complex but also opportunities for fans of all ages to watch and learn more about horse races.
