For Glorious View, the best vistas in recent weeks have come at the front of the pack, and on Saturday she’ll attempt to win her fourth straight when she makes her graded stakes debut at Belmont Park
Kentucky Derby winner Orb breezed a half-mile in a seemingly effortless 47.18 seconds Monday morning at Belmont Park in his final serious work for the next leg of racing’s Triple Crown, Saturday’s Preakness at Pimlico Race Course.
Freedom Child assumed command shortly after the start and splashed clear to a rousing 13 ¼-length victory in Saturday’s 59th running of the Grade 2, $200,000 Peter Pan at Belmont Park, earning himself a shot at the June 8 Belmont Stakes.
Beginning Saturday, 16 local purveyors of certified organic vegetables and greens, poultry, eggs, bakery items, pickles, and fresh fish and shellfish will be offering their goods at a new weekly Farmer’s Market at Belmont Park.
In conjunction with the Big Apple Triple, three lucky race fans will win trips to either the $125,000 Mike Lee on June 1 at Belmont Park, the $150,000 New York Derby on July 20 at Finger Lakes, or the $150,000 Albany on August 21 at Saratoga.
Belmont Park opens tomorrow April 26 and once again the Long Island Rail Road is partnering with the New York Racing Association to provide regular train service to and from the racetrack for the entire racing season.
