Trainer Mary Hartmann took one look around the massive Meydan Racecourse and shook her head in amazement.
“Have you ever seen anything like this?,” she asked. “I’ve been to
Belmont Park, Santa Anita [Park], and a lot of other tracks, and they
are all nice, but this is a totally different playing field. It’s
actually another whole ballpark.
“I mean, Belmont Park is big, but you could fit about 2½ Belmont Parks in here. It’s enough to boggle the mind.”
