Monmouth Park - Image Credit: https://www.flickr.com/photos/cecphotography/6043567103/

Monmouth Park was established in 1870, and it began as a three mile ranch. John F. Chamberlain, Amos Robbins and John Hoey came up with the idea to make a race track. In the 139 year history of Monmouth Park, a total of three structures have bared this name. The track, located between Eatontown and Oceanport, was one of these structures brought about in an attempt to bring in people to the Jersey Shore neighborhoods.

History

Monmouth Park was recognized as the Newmarket of America, which was a famous race track in England. The track had a rough start and shut down after just 3 years of being in business. In 1882, Monmouth was reopened and had undergone  a lot of updates and renovations. It was so popular that a second tract was opened in 1890.
