Breakfast At Belmont Weekends During 2016 Spring Meet
Breakfast At Belmont Weekends During 2016 Spring Meet by Michael Fenrich: The Belmont Park spring meet began Friday April 29, 2016. A staple program of the meet is the featured Breakfast at Belmont event.
NYRA TV Analyst Maggie Wolfendale commented on breakfast at Belmont saying, “Not every fan of Thoroughbred racing is just a gambler. Some of them just enjoy the sheer beauty of the race horse. So being able to get so close to them and their trainers during their morning regimes is very special for those fans. Also I think it lets fans see how much hard work and dedication go into caring for these horses by their people. Furthermore, it’s just a fun,social gathering for people who love horse racing!”
This year’s Breakfast at Belmont is different than in the past. There are only three weekends that the breakfast, tram tour, paddock show and starting gate will be offered at Belmont Park.
Memorial Day Weekend– May 28, 29 and 30
Fathers Day Weekend– June 18 and 19
Stars and Stripes Festival– July 9 and 10
Price- $12 Buffett style eggs, bacon, waffles, coffee and cereals for children.
At the end fans must leave but they can re-enter at 11:30 and pay $5 each person for the afternoon races.
Memorial Day weekend is a trifecta breakfast treat. It is a great way to start the summer season, watch horses in the morning with family before going to the beach parades and other holiday activities.
The next weekend is Fathers Day weekend. It could be an exacta to enjoy with the father and family to have breakfast and observe horses at the Belmont Utopia.
Stars and Stripes festival is the last weekend and it is to celebrate the accomplishments of the meet and enjoy the last tranquil mornings before they travel to Saratoga.
