Empire City Casino at Yonkers Raceway (Yonkers, NY) is the place to be fans wanting the comfort of settling down in one cozy location for the New York sports spectacular on Saturday, June 7, with live broadcasts of California Chrome’s Triple Crown bid in the Belmont Stakes (post time 6:52 PM) throughout Yonkers Raceway’s simulcast locations, followed by the telecast of WBC Middleweight titlist Sergio Martinez vs. three-time champion Miguel Cotto in their World Middleweight Championship clash (9:00 PM) at Dan Rooney’s Sports Bar. There are 40 HD TV screens in Dan Rooney’s to watch the exhilarating action from every angle.
Dan Rooney’s will feature food and drink specials for fight fans, as well as its customary menu. Along with Cotto-Martinez, the outstanding undercard featuring Jorge Melendez vs. Yuri Foreman and Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. vs. Marvin Sonsona will also be available.
The broadcasts will emanate from two of New York’s most historic locations –Belmont Park and Madison Square Garden. Of course, Yonkers Raceway has its own storied history, beginning in 1899 as a thoroughbred track where the likes of Seabiscut raced, and as a premiere harness facility hosting Triple Crown races of its own – the signature Yonkers Trot, the Messenger Stakes, and previously the Cane Pace.
Seating is on a first-come/first-serve basis, for more information visit www.empirecitycasino.com.
