Belmont Beyond the Backstretch, Part 2

Driving on the road above it you might miss it, but taking the low road on the Hempstead Turnpike side of the backstretch it’s larger than life . . .
 
 
 
 
This greenhouse takes up a large corner of Belmont’s backstretch and it is filled to the brim with the blooms that brighten the Park. It seems that NYRA not only plants many lovely and varied flowers around the Park, it also grows them! I had no idea that such an endeavor was part of the culture of Belmont Park, but hey, you do learn something every day.

Pretty cool, isn't there a greenhouse at Saratoga, too?
Beautiful ~!
