Commission Approves Monmouth’s Request To Pay Purses Before Post-Race Results Come Back

Purses at Monmouth Park haven’t been paid out for nearly the entire meet, which began on July 3, due to logjams at the Truesdail laboratory in California which have delayed the analysis of post-race tests. On Monday, Darby Development chairman and CEO Dennis Drazin told drf.com that the New Jersey Racing Commission had approved a request for Monmouth to pay out purses on races at least 11 days old, even without the post-race test results.

New Jersey Gov Phil Murphy still needs to sign the commission’s order for the policy to go into effect, but Drazin said he expects the governor to do so within the next 48 hours.

“We’re hopeful this will all get expedited, and we think we’ll be able to issue those payments starting Wednesday or Thursday,” Drazin told drf.com.
