This week’s US Racing Race of the Week is the Haskell Invitational at Monmouth Park. This is a race that some thought might be a landing spot for Justify, given trainer Bob Baffert’s eight previous wins in the $1 million event, including five in the last eight years.

However, even without the Triple Crown champ in the lineup, the field for this year’s Haskell is pretty good, with a Grade I winner (Good Magic), a Grade 2 winner (Bravazo) and a couple of Grade 3 winners (Core Beliefs and Golden Brown) set to do battle over 1 1/8 miles on the main track.
