Horse racing betting on the Haskell on August 2nd should get a lot of attention from gamblers at the sportsbook.
Online horse betting will have Rachel Alexandra matched up against Belmont winner Summer Bird in addition to a number of other talented horses. The purse for the Haskell in horse racing betting will be $250,000 larger as Monmouth Park added the money to make the purse $1.25 million with the winning horse getting $700,000. The Haskell has some competition that weekend in online horse betting but now with the purse at over $1 million they are likely to draw a talented field of horses in online horse betting. "We're doing our best to attract the stars, and this makes the race even more attractive," said Bob Kulina, Monmouth's vice president and general manager. "Not only do we reward the winner with more money, we make it more attractive for all participants."
Other horses expected to be in the online horse betting field for the Haskell include Munnings, Papa Clem, and Bunker Hill. Duke of Mischief is also possible in online horse betting. Online horse betting info shows that Summer Bird has been preparing at Monmouth for several weeks and Papa Clem is familiar with the track as well. Papa Clem ran in Monmouth's Long Branch Stakes on July 11 and finished third in online horse betting. Papa Clem will need a jockey as online horse betting info shows since Rafael Bejarano was injured at Del Mar. "On Wednesday morning, Bejarano gave me the call for the Haskell and then he went down that afternoon," trainer Gary Stute said, "We are still planning on running in the Haskell." The two possible jockeys for Papa Clem as online horse betting stats tell us are Elvis Trujillo, Monmouth's leading rider and Tyler Baze, who has ridden Papa Clem in the past in horse racing betting.
Online horse betting info shows that Bunker Hill had his final breeze Thursday at Monmouth. Online horse betting notes show that trainer Derek Ryan said his horse is running well but that Rachel Alexandra is the horse to beat. "He's been working gangbusters with the blinkers on," Ryan said. "But if the filly runs her race, we're all running for second money, anyway."
Duke of Mischief might be entered in the Haskell horse racing betting race. "We're kind of teetering in the middle right now," trainer David Fawkes said.
