As Monmouth Park gears up for its 68th racing season, it has introduced a new logo to commemorate its first calendar year under new management.
The logo — a silhouette of a horse charging across the Oceanport racetrack — is modeled after 2009 Horse of the Year Rachel Alexandra and her winning run in that year’s Haskell Invitational.
“It’s an exciting logo that marries Monmouth Park of the 19th century with that of the 21st,” said Bill Knauf, vice president of business operations. “While continuing to use the traditional green that has long been associated with Monmouth Park, the new logo adds an ocean blue creating the Monmouth Park summer atmosphere.”
Monmouth Park opens for its 2013 season on May 11 and will feature 61 days of racing through Oct. 6. The highlight of the season is the $1 million Haskell Invitational, which will be held July 28.
