A couple of us talked about going to Belmont Raceway tomorrow, before it dawned on us that this is Memorial Weekend and tomorrow might be a day people escape early.
The first race is at 1:30 so we’d leave here around 11:30 to get to the park in plenty of time to see who is running, have a hot dog, and place our bets before we hear They’re Off.
Here’s who’s running….. I’m thinking in the first race, Eskenformoney to win.
The gotcha is heading the same direction as the Hampton’s Bound idiots, although if we do leave at 11:30 we likely won’t have the mob going over the Throgs Neck at that hour.
I am also guessing that when we leave Belmont, people won’t be going NORTH at that hour fleeing the city, but then again, who would have thunk I’d sit ninety minutes trying to get over the GWB on a sunny Thursday last week.
I’ll let you all decide. Shall we see the ponies or wait? Giddy-up!
