Floral Park Belmont Stakes Festival Rounds Out Belmont Stakes Week

This year, the Floral Park Belmont Stakes Festival was held on Sunday, June 10th to round out Belmont Stakes week. This fabulous afternoon of family fun was attended by thousands of people. NYRA track announcer, Tom Durkin, NYRA racing analyst, Jason Blewitt, and jockey Ramon Dominguez (ALL three are Floral Park residents) attended the event. NYRA is proud sponsor of the Floral Park Belmont Stakes Festival along with the Floral Park Chamber of Commerce and the Village of Floral Park. The Floral Park Art League's annual spring show of equine art is sponsored by NYRA. I was proud to present the first place winner, Emilio J. Allocco, with his award and we will be showcasing his fine work at Belmont Park.
