4 Horses Inducted into New NJ Hall of Fame at Monmouth Park

Four New Jersey horses are receiving recognition with the creation of the New Jersey-bred Hall of Fame at Monmouth Park.

The Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association of New Jersey (TBA) honored the first class of inductees during the New Jersey Thoroughbred Festival at Monmouth Park on Sept. 15.

The initial class includes Henry of Navarre, Regret, Cavalcade, and Open Mind. The four horses are also inducted into the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame in Saratoga Springs, New York.

“New Jersey-breds have a long and distinguished history in Thoroughbred racing and have performed with distinction all across the world,” said Mike Campbell, Executive Director of the TBA. “A New Jersey-bred Hall of Fame is long overdue and it is our hope that visitors to Monmouth Park will learn about the success that New Jersey-bred horses have enjoyed in our industry. We look forward to inducting more of the top New Jersey-bred horses in the Hall of Fame as we continue to work with Monmouth Park to preserve the equine industry in New Jersey.”

Regret, born in 1912, was the first horse to ever win all three races for 2-year-olds at Saratoga. She was also the first filly to ever win the Kentucky Derby in 1915.
