Construction on a trackside sportsbook and entertainment complex began with a ceremonial groundbreaking at Monmouth Park Tuesday which featured representatives from the New Jersey racetrack, Caesars Sportsbook, and local dignitaries who planted golden shovels in the ground to mark the occasion.

The state-of-the-art facility and full-service restaurant combo is set to open in 2025, featuring 16,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor sports viewing with wall-to-wall flat screen televisions, food from nationally known restaurant partner Shake Shack, and more than 25 self-service betting kiosks.

“We are proud to continue investing in Monmouth Park to elevate the sports betting experience for New Jersey sports fans,” said Dan Shapiro, Senior Vice President and Chief Development Officer at Caesars Digital. “The sportsbook at Monmouth Park has been a success since Gov. Phil Murphy placed the state’s first legal sports bet in 2018 and continues to be an outstanding complement to our online businesses.

“We look forward to continuing our support for horse racing in New Jersey and bringing sports fans and racing fans to this historic racetrack.”

Dennis Drazin, Chairman and CEO of Darby Development, LLC, operator of Monmouth Park, praised the ongoing relationship between the track and Caesars.

“We’re extremely excited to begin this next chapter with the upcoming opening of the new Caesars Sportsbook at Monmouth Park,” Drazin said. “This facility will be state-of-the-art with all the amenities that a first-class sportsbook can offer to patrons. As we start our sixth year of sports betting, we continue to see the growth and expansion we knew would eventually happen. This will be a magnificent addition to the Monmouth Park facility as our partnership with Caesars continues to evolve.”
