Turlock Turf Club plans big doings for the Belmont

The Turlock Turf Club, operated by the Stanislaus County Fair, is planning a special event for the Belmont Stakes June 7. You can watch California Chrome, winner of the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness, go for the Triple Crown.

With California Chrome aiming for the Triple Crown, this will be a great year to watch the Belmont Stakes.

But if you can’t get to New York for the June 7 race, there’s still a better option than sitting at home and watching the race in front of the television.

The Turlock Turf Club, operated by the Stanislaus County Fair, is planning a special event for the big day. The Turf Club, a satellite racing venue, regularly broadcasts horse races from around the country, and offers the opportunity to bet on the outcome.

But for the Belmont, the Turf Club is planning a special event. Doors will open early in the morning, with food and drink specials all day, said Adrenna Alkhas, spokeswoman for the fair. Admission will be $5.

There will be plenty of other races that day, but attention no doubt will be focused on the main event, set for a 3:52 p.m. start.
