Big Brown joins lineup for Haskell race at Monmouth Park June 19, 2008 -- Big Brown, the star of this year's Triple Crown series for thoroughbreds, will make his next start in the Haskell Invitational at Monmouth Park on Aug. 3, track officials said Thursday. "We're ecstatic to see that Big Brown plans on running in the Haskell,'' said Dennis Dowd, senior vice president of the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority, which operates Monmouth Park. "He's a tremendous horse with a ton of talent.'' Dowd added, "I know racing fans at the Jersey Shore welcome the news as much as we do.'' Big Brown won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness before faltering in the Belmont Stakes, denying the colt from becoming the first runner in decades to sweep the Triple Crown races. The Haskell carries a $1 million purse, with over half the amount going to the winner. However under bonus conditions that are part of the race, the track will pay Big Brown's owners an additional $50,000 and trainer Rick Dutrow another $50,000. The payments are stipulated in Haskell conditions for the connections of a Haskell starter that has won two Triple Crown races.
