The biggest wagering day since the Belmont Stakes is coming up on Saturday July 8th. The “Stars & Stripes” Day at Belmont Park features $3.7 million in purses spread between 5 major stakes races. Other key simulcast events that day include the Arlington Million Preview (with a four-pack of graded stakes), the $300,000 Delaware Oaks (Gr. 3) at Delaware Park, and the $750,000 Louisiana Legends Night at Evangeline Downs. For harness fans, there are a pair of $250,000 races in the Graduate Series final legs — one for pacers and one for trotters. Fans can bet the action at a Virginia Bets OTB in Richmond — at Ponies & Pints downtown or at Breakers Sports Grille in the west end.
