Julie Krone to Welcome Guests
Hall of Fame jockey and Festival ambassador, Julie Krone, will be on hand before the races to sign autographs and say hello to old friends. Krone retired from racing in 2004, but was leading rider at Monmouth Park from 1987-1989, going on to win the 1993 Belmont Stakes with Colonial Affair and the Breeders’ Cup in 2003 with Halfbridled. Krone was inducted into the National Racing Hall of Fame in 2000.
“It’s one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been and it’s where I established my career. I can’t wait to be back at Monmouth and to see so many familiar faces that meant so much to me. It will be a great homecoming,” she said.
“Julie Krone embodies everything that is good about horse racing,” said Lara Sawaya, Executive Director of HH Sheikh Mansoor Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Global Arabian Horse Flat Racing Festival. “We are honored to have her as an ambassador of our racing festival and look forward to her return to Monmouth Park.”
