Emirates Airline to Sponsor True North

Emirates Airline, a long-time partner of The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA), will serve as the presenting sponsor of the Grade 2, $250,000 True North Handicap, one of six graded stakes at Belmont Park on Belmont Stakes Day, Saturday, June 11.

 

On the day of the Belmont Stakes, Emirates Airline will conduct a “Get to know Emirates Airline” contest and award the winner with two business class tickets to Dubai, the hub of the airline’s many destinations in 66 countries. Entry forms and drop boxes will be available in the clubhouse near the Belmont Room on the second floor and the Turf and Field Club on the fourth four. In addition, Emirates Cabin Crew will assist with the distribution of entry forms.

 

Contest entries will be accepted until one hour before the True North. Contestants who answer the questions correctly will be selected in a draw for the grand prize.

 

Following the True North Handicap, Emirates Cabin Crew will visit the winner’s circle and present the trophy for the six-furlong dash for horses 3-years-old and up.

 

“This Emirates competition captures the excitement of the True North,” said Nigel Page, Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, Americas. “This will be a unique opportunity for customers to test their knowledge of Emirates through simple trivia to win a trip to Dubai and experience our world-class service.”

 

Emirates has been a partner of NYRA and the Belmont Stakes since 2005, the same year they began their partnership with the Breeders’ Cup World Championships as the title sponsor of the Emirates Airline Breeders’ Cup Turf and Emirates Airline Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf. The airline is an ardent supporter of racing around the globe, sponsoring the Dubai World Cup, Melbourne Cup, Champion Stakes, Yorkshire Cup, Singapore Derby, Godolphin Racing, and the Australian Turf Club.

 

“We are thrilled to continue our longstanding partnership with Emirates Airline, a company that strongly supports racing around the world,” said NYRA President and CEO Charles Hayward. “Their fun and innovative Belmont Stakes Day contest will allow racing fans to learn about the world-class service that Emirates provides and offer an opportunity to win an exciting trip to Dubai.”
