TRENTON -- New Jersey Transit will add additional trains to help get horse race fans to Monmouth Park to watch Triple Crown winner American Pharoah.

The horse will race in Sunday's $1 million Haskell Invitational at the race track in Monmouth County.

The state department of transportation says NJ Transit will add four additional trains for fans departing after the race.

The transit agency will also work with local law enforcement to make sure traffic moves smoothly on Route 36 to the Garden State Parkway.

Summer Shore Express trains to New York Penn Station will also stop at the track.

NJ Transit says riders should buy roundtrip tickets in advance as there are no ticket vending machines at the track train station.
