ROUND 4 FOR WINTER MEMORIES, HUNGRY ISLAND IN LONGINES JUST A GAME
ELMONT, N.Y. – Since the summer of 2010, Winter Memories and Hungry Island have met three times, with the former maintaining a 2-1 edge. Their first showdown this year will come in Saturday’s Grade 1, $500,000 Longines Just a Game at Belmont Park.
