You are about to have a complete day at the races. I will take you through the early morning grooming and workouts through the actual race day at Monmouth Park Race Track.You will be there for all the unseen events that take place in a typical day at the races.You are about to embark on the most exciting day at the races you will ever encounter without actually physically being there.Our morning starts at 5:00AM at which time the thoroughbred race horses are groomed and fed then are walked around the barn area for a slight workout. They are then taken out to the main track where they have different workout jockeys giving them their morning exercise and runs. Some of the horses go through more extensive training such as coming out of the starting gate and are watched by track officials and clockers in order to document a speed rating at various different furlongs. These documentations, will show up in the morning telegraph to give the handicappers information on the various times and distances. After all the morning duties, the horses are taken back to the paddock area where they are walked around either by trainers helpers or machines. They are cleaned and groomed again and fed for the next day. Some horses that are entered in the current days races will be made ready for that race. Now we reach the time when most of you "the spectators" will see the actural races. I hope the photos you are about to see will accurately depict (A Day At The Races At Monmouth Park Race Track).
