    Belmont stakes promotions

    I've noticed a few places having some interesting promotions for Saturday.

    MOUNTAINEER has 3x points if California Chrome wins and you make a race bet with your card before the race. It's ok because it applies to all point earning, even tables. Risky though.

    You can also get a t-shirt if you buy a program.

    Wheeling Island

    If CC wins, everyone(so the mailer implies)gets $15 free play from 730-800. Second $10. Everything else $5.

    Spend $10 on matinee race bet, free trifecta bet up to $100. I have no idea if the bet is for $100 or capped win.

    They have other stuff interesting but not to me like $30 buffet packages. New members are getting $20 free play there so it might be enough to go there for my friend to benefit. The place will be packed.

    The other places are doing really nothing special I've seen so far.

    It's going to be an exciting day and the casinos are vying for the money in some nice competition I'm happy to think.

    Wish I had a racino close enough to be able to attend on Saturday, it's always more fun to be among fellow degenerate horseplayers than stuck at home watching NBC and punching in bets online

    The free trifecta bet (even if it's capped sounds interesting - wonder if you have to play it straight or if a key is allowed? And I wonder if the mandatory $10 matinee bet has to be a straight win only? Either way it's a nice gimmick and imho something the tracks should be doing for live racing attendees every race day - don't get me started lol!

    If you make it out there have a good time, that poor horse is carrying the emotional weight of the entire U.S. racing nation and he's blissfully unaware munching his oats and hay lol

    It's going to be a great day. I'll do a trip report, but it won't be live.
    That's all folks!

    The free trifecta ticket is random but doesn't matter to me. They also have a thing where $200 slot coin-in has a chance to win up to $5000 free play. It'll probably be $5-10 but still another good promotion stacked together. The biggest worry will be playing what I want and I'll have to wait to sit down anywhere.
    That's all folks!

    I'm probably going to bet on 11 and 2. Unsure the order and who else.

    I'm probably not going to do a trip report and have to keep this one confidential for personal reasons.
    That's all folks!
