The Spread Sheet - Some pretty amazing things have happened at Belmont Park. This famous track is where Secretariat clinched the Triple Crown in 1973 with one of the most memorable feats in sports history.Was it a coincidence? Call it what you want. But this didn't happen at any racetrack. This happened at New York City's home for horse racing -- at a landmark that served as one of the staging areas for emergency vehicles and personnel in the days following 9/11. And the races were held only a few minutes after a special ceremony to commemorate the sad anniversary.
The $2 Pick 3 paid $18.60, but anyone with that priceless ticket will probably want to hold onto it forever.
Can't make this shit up. NYC just showing off in front of the whole nation. And they can't do anything but take it.
