Belmont Park is a major Thoroughbred horse-racing facility located in Elmont in the Town of Hempstead in Nassau County, New York, on Long Island adjoining New York City. It first opened on May 4, 1905. It is typically open for racing throughout May and June and into late July, and again from late September through late October
Phar Lap (1926 - 1932) is an Australian legend. He was the winner of Australia's Melbourne Cup in 1930, that country's equivalent of the Kentucky Derby. Phar Lap raced during the depression and won the hearts of a nation he ran in. Phar Lap was a national hero and died only 2 years later in Menloo Park, California under very suspicious circumstances. It was long thought that organized crime played a major part in his death
