Belmont Park Jockeys to Visit Ronald McDonald House

Belmont Park
This Friday, May 31st, jockeys from Belmont Park will ride into the hearts of families at the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island (RMH-LI) as part of an annual partnership with The New York Racing Association, Inc. – Jockey Day.

 

One week before the 145th running of the $1 million Belmont Stakes, jockeys will travel to RMH-LI in New Hyde Park at 10:00 a.m. to mingle with children and families staying at the House. Clad in their colorful silks, the riders will pose for photographs and distribute gifts of personally autographed riding goggles and hats.

 

“This is a great event for our children and their families,” said Matt Campo, RMH-LI Executive Director. “It is a fun day that everyone looks forward to. Meeting the jockeys is always an exciting opportunity for our resident families. We wish the jockeys the best of luck next week.”

 

This year’s participating jockeys include Javier Castellano, Rajiv Maragh, Jose Ortiz, Irad Ortiz, and Manuel Franco. Additional jockeys are expected to confirm this week.


 

“NYRA is proud to partner with the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island for their annual Jockey visit,” said NYRA Director of Community Relations, Joanne K. Adams. “We’re committed to providing support to organizations that have a positive impact on our local communities.”
