Emerald Downs’ race fans offered an inspiring $5,005.20 worth of donations toward Alex’s Lemonade Stand on Belmont Stakes Day. The proceeds are directed toward research for pediatric cancer patients. A nationwide fund-raising effort netted in excess of $120,000 through the efforts of 37 racetracks. Belmont Park, home to the test of champions, received $29,000 in donations from 62,000 fans as Afleet Alex may not have won the Triple Crown but was, indeed, crowned Alex the Great.
