For first time, gamblers bet on sports at Meadowlands Racetrack
"Saturday ... the track featured the biggest harness race of the year, the Meadowlands Pace, and a new attraction: sports betting. So the vast parking lots surrounding the track were nearly full. By the end of the night, not only did [Gural's] horse, Six Pack, win the sixth race, but gamblers had put down a total of $560,000 in bets, more in a single day than at New Jersey’s other newly opened sports betting parlors. By Sunday noon, the Meadowlands sports book had taken in another $220,000."

New Jersey Is Now The United States' Hottest Clean Energy Economy - Forbes

Monmouth Park racing not 'cannibalized' on first weekend
"For the weekend, on-track handle for the two days was up 18 percent, while attendance jumped 21 percent, which equates to more money spent on concessions. 'I attribute the numbers to two things,' Drazin said. 'I think the bundled stakes program (on Sunday) is well received by the public, and I think sports betting really brought a lot more people in and they were the kind of people wo were wager on racing, too. Frankly, it's not even football season. There's not even that much going on. There's World Cup, there's baseball and there are futures, but this is probably a fraction of what we will see in football season' ... the question now is how much money the track made on sports betting."

You can't bet on Rutgers: The first day of sports gambling in New Jersey
"That guy who tweets in all caps was there, just like in Delaware, screaming at the top of his lungs and placing a $5,000 bet on the White Sox. They lost, 5-2; he said he also lost $4,000 in Delaware. He sells picks, too, if you'd like to share in that success."

NJ sports betting: The case for Justify running in the Haskell
"And as I stood in the north end of the grandstand on Thursday morning, where the Monmouth Park Sports Book by William Hill was the epicenter of the state's new sports betting industry, it was apparent why it's so important the track land Triple Crown winner Justify for Haskell Day on July 29. The stakes have been raised, and introducing sports betting to a broader audience, thus taking full advantage of a potentially game-changing alternative revenue stream for the financially troubled racetrack, is the single-most important function of the current meet. If horsemen want more racing days and higher purses in the future, it starts with bringing the sport's latest superstar to the area."

Two $20 bets, and they're off to sports betting in New Jersey
"Our goal is to increase purses and add more racing dates," Drazin said. Drazin estimates that once the New Jersey sports betting market stabilizes, Monmouth could handle $1 billion a year. "We think the illegal sports betting market nationally, offshore and books, is around $40 billion," he said. "Because of the demographics in New Jersey, we think total betting will reach $10 billion annually. In a mature market, we think Monmouth will take in 10 percent of the state's total handle."

You can now place sports bets (legally) in New Jersey
"The Borgata and Monmouth Park Racetrack in Oceanport were the only places prepared to accept gamblers as sports betting started in New Jersey, and both were inundated with people apparently delighted to have the chance to part ways with their money. At both venues, officials described the moment in soaring terms — as the dawn of a 'new era' in New Jersey, and a significant opportunity to invigorate lagging Atlantic City casinos and the state's racetracks."

Sports betting bill written to include site that won't host horse racing
"Anything that would go there would be a multimillion-dollar investment. They'd have to build a structure and spend a lot of money," Sweeney said in a phone interview. "They qualified. They’re a former racetrack. Once the voters passed the initiative, Cherry Hill was in, just like Atlantic City." [Cherry Hill is the former Garden State Park site.]

New Jersey legalizes sports betting
"Mr. Murphy's office would not divulge which team the governor might bet on Thursday at Monmouth Park, or even which sport. He could bet the lone New Jersey team — the Devils — to win the Stanley Cup in 2019 at odds that are about 80 to 1, or wager on the Jets or Giants, who play in New Jersey, as underdogs to win the Super Bowl. But if he bets the World Cup, which the United States failed to qualify for, Germany, where Mr. Murphy served as ambassador under President Barack Obama, is a 4-to-1 favorite."
