CAUTHEN, VELASQUEZ RELIVE 1978 TRIPLE CROWN WITH FANS


ELMONT, N.Y. – The unforgettable rivalry between 1978 Triple Crown winner Affirmed and archrival Alydar came alive again at Belmont Park on Saturday afternoon as hundreds of fans lined up for a special autograph session with Hall of Fame jockeys Steve Cauthen and Jorge Velasquez.

With paid admission, fans received a postcard of the photo finish of the 1978 Belmont Stakes, which they could get signed by Cauthen and Velasquez for a $5 donation, with the proceeds going to the Permanently Disabled Jockeys’ Fund.
