Most Excellent Lawn Jockey, Monmouth Park, New Jersey

The use of a "Lawn Jockey" is a dignified, noble tradition in Monmouth County, New Jersey.

 

Monmouth County has a tradition of horse racing that goes back before the days of George Washington.

 

These little guys are at two of the entrances of "Wolf Hill" which was a training track for horses that raced at Monmouth Park Track. It is now a city park.
