MONMOUTH PARK - The 47th running of the Haskell Invitational took place Sunday at Monmouth Park.

About 40,000 people attended the races at the track. Many small races happened throughout the afternoon, but most had their eyes on the $1 million purse that took place later in the day.

Many have been wondering how much longer the invitational will last. Legal sports betting and gambling has been a question recently and some hope it will come to the racetrack soon.

Some officials say that the legal gambling could be in place at the track by fall.
