Monmouth Park Adding Trackside Sportsbook & Entertainment Complex

Monmouth Park and Caesars Entertainment are in the process of building a trackside sportsbook & entertainment complex to keep up with the growing sports betting industry. Oceanport is getting a beautiful upgrade, my friends. Unfortunately, I missed the groundbreaking ceremony on Tuesday, May 7. No worries, I’ll keep an eye out for the grand opening ceremony sometime next year. We’ve had many WRAT gatherings and parties at Monmouth Park Racetrack over the last 27 plus years and have loved every single one of them. We've had many photos taken with the winning horses, jockeys, and the horse owners in the winner’s circle. When is The New Sportsbook & Entertainment Complex Opening? The new 16,000 square foot complex is expected to open in 2025, That’s 16,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space to watch sports, eat good food, and have fun. They plan on adding a Shake Shack restaurant, as well as wall-to-wall television screens, and more than 25 self-service betting kiosks. According to the Daily Voice, Park operator Darby Development said the relationship with Caesars is helping Monmouth Park grow. "We’re extremely excited to begin this next chapter with the upcoming opening of the new Caesars Sportsbook at Monmouth Park," said Dennis Drazin, CEO of Darby Development. "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." The William Hill sportsbook at Monmouth Park accepted the Garden State's first legal in-person sports bet. A May 2018 Supreme Court decision in a case brought by New Jersey cleared the way for many states to legalize sports gambling. Caesars acquired William Hill and rebranded the track's current sportsbook in early 2022. If you’re looking to hang out, have fun, and place your bets while the new sportsbook & entertainment complex is being built, Caesars Sportsbook at Monmouth Park in Oceanport is open from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. on weekends.
