Is Anyone Else Going to the Belmont Stakes?

It might be neat to meet up with fellow Zenyatta fans. My husband and I will be going! We are leaving little Joplin, MO on my birthday to fly out to NYC. I'm excited! Will anyone else be out there?

  • I wish I could go, little sister has graduation from High School on the 6th. She's excited.

    Unfortunely not. Have to work. If I'm off the first two legs, I know i'll be working for the third one. But I have a feeling I know what my residen'ts will be watching during supper hour. Lol. Besides, I'm a nervous wreck watching on t.v. couldn't imagine what I do if I were actually there. Joplin? Not too far from my son. He lives in Wentzville. Prison guard at Fulton County.

  • Off topic but I have to ask: Joplin, as in.... Joplin, Missouri? The Joplin that got hit by that monster tornado back in 2011?? Huge tornado buff here, I watched the news coverage of that tornado and-- while I find tornadoes beautiful and exciting-- how terrifying and devestating it was to plow through such a densely populated area. Can't imagine being there myself.

    Back on topic: how lucky you are to see the Belmont Stakes! Make sure and enjoy it extra hard for those of us unable to go!
  • @marepower I'm the same way when watching the races on TV .

    Yes, that Joplin. It hit three blocks from the house we lived in at the time It was very scary, I hope to never ever go through that again. I am so excited about going. The only tracks I have been to were Hollywood Park (watched Game on Dude win the final Hollywood Gold Cup there) and Santa Anita. I'm excited to see more.
  • @valerier, did you get to go?
  • I posted this on the Belmont thread, but I was supposed to go. Bought tickets and everything. However I ended up having to stay home and help get ready for my brother's graduation party tomorrow and missed a Triple Crown :(

    My uncle and cousin went though. They go every year there's a TC on the line - and my uncle was there for Secretariat, Seattle Slew, and Affirmed.
  • Ah EliRose that's rotten! I'm sorry! :(
  • Your brother owes you big time.
  • You have no idea how much lip he's heard from me lol.
  • I have had a family member whose gone to two different Triple Crown races or atleast seen two different triple crowns in person, but you know I might get a thousand questions if I say who. It always happens to me when I say something a family member of mine does.
  • @EliRose, that sucks that you couldn't go to the Belmont, I would give anything to do to the Belmont Stakes. But I understand the graduation things, my sister had her high school graduation yesterday and I had to help her and her best friend get ready in the morning they had to be at the place the graduation ceremony was being held by 8:30am for practice. Then their graduation was at 11:00. Then their graduation party which was together was at 2:00. So I totally understand the graduation party. I hope your brother had a fun time at graduation and I hope his graduation party turns out good.
  • That was a fun game, CaliforniaChomre1121. I can't believe a racing novice like me got 6 points!
  • @valerier, did you get to go?
