New York Promoters to Race Left-Handed 3-Year-Olds, Televise It

New York Promoters to Race Left-Handed 3-Year-Olds, Televise It

I enjoy a good laugh as much as the next guy, but a 1.5 mile race over dirt where the athlete’s cutoff age is three years old is probably not my cup of toffee.

Promoters are shameless, predicting no shortage of competitors for the top prize. As a parent, I’m disgusted, but for $800,000 I have to admit I’d consider it.

An email response from the mayor of Elmont, New York, where the race is being held, was as shameless as it was tone deaf.

We are proud of our annual race and it is a big revenue generator for our city. We hope you can attend and will cover the event!

We researched the “annual event” claim and found that it’s been going on for 148 years and has drawn crowds as large as 120,000 rabbid, screaming fans.

I, for one, have no intention of paying good money or wasting precious time watching this so-called “Belmont Stakes” in June.

UPDATE: We reached out to an expert following the trends for the 2015 Belmont Stakes betting, and he not-so-politely informed us that these are actually horses being raced, not toddlers.

Our sincerest apologies for any confusion this may have caused.
