For one magic day, horse racing dominates the sports news in New York. Horse racing used to be part of the city's soul. New York used to be horse crazy. The sport was in the city's blood. Belmont Park is still a thing of beauty. The racing remains top class and the sight of a dozen horses thundering down the homestretch remains one of the most thrilling spectacle on the planet.

Belmont Races [01:40]
The third leg of the Triple Crown runs at 6:30 EDT June 11th at Belmont Park in Elmont, NY. There won't be a Triple Crown winner since Animal Kingdom won the Kentucky Derby and Shackleford won the Preakness, but it's expected to be an exciting race. This slide show is of the races at Belmont Park several weeks ago and should give you a sense of what it's like there on a race day - in the paddock, approaching the track, and coming down the home stretch.

WYPR Down The Home Stretch - May 16, 2011 [02:22]
With another Preakness upon us, thoroughbred horseracing takes center stage at Pimlico and across the state. But after the race is over, Maryland's horseracing industry faces long odds and questions about its future. Horse owners find it increasingly hard to make a living in Maryland, with more racing dates and greater purses being offered in neighboring states. Breeders are turning more and more to diversification to make ends meet. And bettors make their wages in parlors for simulcasts from other venues. Could racing disappear in the future? WYPR takes a look at the state of horseracing with a five-part radio series, "Down The Stretch: The Future of Maryland's Horseracing Future," starting Monday during "Morning Edition" on 88-1, WYPR -- your NPR news station. In part one of the radio series, WYPR's Paul Shepard talks to people about what can be done to improve the horse racing experience in Maryland.

Del Mar Horse Racing [03:23]
There is no better combination of fun and cheap family travel than going to the horse races at the Del Mar track in San Diego. The kids love to see the beautiful horses up close in the paddock and the excitement as the horses thunder down the home stretch to the finish line. The kids pick their favorite horses, and then they bet each other for a quarter per race They share their horse racing tips as they place their bets. Sundays are Family Fun Days in the infield, and in between races the kids have a ball on the obstacle course, the pony rides, the face painting, and the magic show. Kids get in free everyday, and being a cheap family, we bring our own lunch and drinks. There is something for everyone at Del Mar, and at the end of the day, the entire family had a great time and spent less than $20. Del Mar - Where the turf meets the surf!
