One of the giants of the sports betting industry, William Hill, has paired up with Oceanport, New Jersey's Monmouth Park to become the sole sports betting provider of the racetrack, according to a joint press release.
“One day sports betting will be legal in New Jersey. When it is, William
Hill will be there,” William Hill US CEO Joe Asher said in the press release Tuesday. “In the
meantime, we are really excited to sponsor the William Hill Haskell
Invitational, one of the America’s great races for three-year-olds at
one of America’s great racetracks.”
The sports betting titan will also be named the title sponsor of the Haskell Invitational which is one of the biggest and most prestigious horse races in the country.
This is a big, bold move by William Hill since New Jersey is currently seeking legalized sports betting in the state.
