Race fans can expect their local venues to offer not only great racing but also special promotions and celebrations this weekend as Big Brown faces nine challengers in the Belmont Stakes, the third gem of the Triple Crown. (Friday-morning update: Casino Drive’s owner and trainer are watching their charge carefully after detecting a small stone bruise in his left-hind foot.)

You’ll find it worth your while on Saturday to grab a friend or two, pile the family into the car, or take an invigorating bike ride to your nearest track in TRJ territory. Tracks hosting live meets and even local simulcast outlets are promising non-stop excitement, special contests and promotions, and the chance to be part of history!

Be there or be square!
