Sportech Technology and Services Deliver Record-breaking Betting at Monmouth Park’s Haskell Stakes


Sportech Racing and Digital, a division of Sportech PLC, congratulates Monmouth Park leadership in delivering a record-breaking day of betting during the Haskell Stakes held July 18th at Monmouth Park.

Sportech's Quantum™ System Software, managed from the operations center in New Jersey, processed over $20.5 million on the Haskell card, smashing the previous record set in 2015 when the popular Triple Crown winner American Pharoah took the honors.

The implications of the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in significantly lower attendance but Sportech's national and global commingling infrastructure supported Monmouth Park initiatives to overcome the challenges and deliver a seamless day of betting to participants who could not attend in person.

Bill Russell, Sportech's Vice President of Sales and Business Development for North America, commented, 'Sportech wishes to congratulate Monmouth Park for overcoming the challenges of COVID-19 to produce a successful record-breaking day of racing and betting. We are proud of the role Sportech's employees and platforms played in delivering this successful event and acknowledge the team members who work tirelessly with our clients who continue to keep racing and betting fans all over the world engaged.'
