BELMONT PARK SPARKLES ON OPENING DAY


ELMONT, N.Y. – Brilliant performances, tight finishes, large fields and a celebrity visit – or two – highlighted opening day at Belmont Park, hinting at even bigger things to come over the course of the 56-day spring/summer meet.

The day began with an impromptu late morning flyover by the decommissioned space shuttle Enterprise, which flew past the track atop a 747 before landing at nearby John F. Kennedy International Airport, and included a visit from NBC Sports hockey analyst and racing fan Eddie Olczyk, a member of the 1994 Stanley Cup champion New York Rangers.
