Don’t miss the “run for the carnations” celebration in the Uncas Ballroom on June 6th
UNCASVILLE, CT (May 27, 2009) – The third leg of the cherished Triple Crown thoroughbred horse race is upon us and once again, Mohegan Sun is the only Connecticut gaming facility offering wagering on this year’s 141st running of the Belmont Stakes on Saturday, June 6th.  Guests are invited to come and enjoy the excitement as Mohegan Sun celebrates with a special party.  Put your advanced wager in at the Race Book on Friday, June 5, 2009 and receive an official Belmont Stakes souvenir gift with any $25.00 wager on the Belmont.  On Saturday, June 6th, doors to the Uncas Ballroom open at 11:00am for the Belmont Stakes Party.
After two historic races that landed an incredible underdog and an unlikely Filly in the winner’s circle, the Belmont Stakes returns with one of those famous horses (Mine That Bird) looking to take the race once more.  Turf editor and handicapper for the Las Vegas Review-Journal and author of Betting on Horse Racing for Dummies Richard Eng will be watching out for that as well as handing out some helpful horse betting insight to guests.  Eng will be joined by another expert handicapper, Tom Quigley, owner & publisher of the popular publication, The HorsePlayer Magazine.
All guests who make a $25.00 wager will receive an official pass to the Buffet or an official Belmont Stakes souvenir.
