Belmont Park: Racing for Special Olympics

On Saturday, July 9, Belmont Park will play host to a day of racing for the athletes of Special Olympics New York.

 

More than 250 athletes and their families and friends will gather in the Marquee Tent in Belmont’s backyard for the celebration, which begins at 11:30 a.m. Donations to Special Olympics will be accepted from racing fans at various stations throughout Belmont Park.  

 

Among the horsemen involved in “Racing for a Cause” are Linda Rice, Doodnauth Shivamangal, Naipaul Chatterpaul, Joe Lostritto and Richard DeMola, as well as Drawing Away Stables and jockey Janice Blake-Baeza, who will donate half her earnings from that day to Special Olympics.

 

Some of the local businesses lending their support include King Umberto Restaurant of Elmont and Dunkin’ Donuts of Elmont, while Coca-Cola/Centerplate has donated beverages for the event and The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) has donated the use of the Marquee Tent.
