The Haskell Invitational (G1) is a 1 1/8 mile race for 3-year-olds at Monmouth Park. The race was created in 1968 to honor former Monmouth Park President and Chairman Amory L. Haskell and was originally open to older horses. In 1981 it was changed to an Invitational for 3-year-olds. The race often serves as a prep for the Travers Stakes at Saratoga Race Course.
