New Addition to the Race
For the first time in history, the Belmont stakes , the third jewel of Triple Crown's racing will be run first with the Kentucky Derby and Preakness to follow. . Social distancing between horses will likely be impossible once the race starts and the jockeys will of course be wearing very protective masks......EXCEPT one.
To add some excitement to this race with almost no fans at what is normally a jammed Belmont Park, the race officials have gone to Westchester County, New York to the famous village of Sleepy Hollow. YES., the very celebrated Headless Horseman will be riding in the Belmont stakes. "There's no way this gentleman will be spreading Covid-19 by sneezing or coughing on any other jockey", a race official commented.
