Verrazano has been installed as a slight 9-5 favorite for the $1 million William Hill Haskell Invitational on Sunday at Monmouth Park.

SADDLE UP

Time after time, Hollywood has shown a racetrack is a great place to tell a compelling story. We look at 10 must-see horse racing movies.

Monmouth oddsmaker Brad Thomas posted the lineup on Thursday, and Oxbow, winner of the Preakness who was second in the Belmont, is the 2-1 second choice.

Trainer Bob Baffert will go for an unprecedented seventh Haskell victory — and his fourth in a row — with Power Broker, the third betting choice at 3-1.

The Haskell is the jewel of the racing season at Monmouth, and a Jersey Shore tradition. Sunday's race will be the 46th running.

The others entered in the mile-and-an-eighth race are: Golden Soul, 8-1; Micromanage, 6-1; Vyjack, 12-1; and Pick of the Litter, 15-1.
