Monmouth Park: 2019 Haskell Invitational Will Be Raced in Spite of 110 Degree Heat

Temperatures will feel like 110 degrees Saturday but officials insist the 2019 Haskell Invitational will be taking place at Monmouth Park Race Track.

*50% signup bonus up to $1000
*Accessible all US states
*7% rebates on horse losses
*True dime line in Baseball up to -170
*$25 minimum to open account
*Highest credit card acceptance rate
*Accessible all 50 states

While this can certainly change prior to Saturday's scheduled start time, the park insists it has a contingency plan.

Spokesman Tom Luicci said the park will have its weather protocols in place, which includes delaying post times if necessary.

"We will also be in constant consultation with state veterenarians," Luicci said.

Monmouth Park plans a full day of racing with 14 races, including the $1 million TVG.com Haskell Invitational at 5:47 p.m.

There is an obvious risk in running the Haskell Invitational including the PR nightmare and backlash NBC will face should a horse collapse on the track or thereafter.

Folks have taken to Twitter to blast Monmouth Race officials.

The racetrack's plan also includes:

    Extra medical personnel on site for people.
    Ice containers stationed throughout the track and where horses walk in from the track.
    Extra hoses for horses to cool down before and after races.
    A misting system in the paddock.
    Shortened post parades.

Maximum Security (8-5)
Mucho Gusto (2-1)
King for a Day (5-2)
