- That's right: On the 10th anniversary of 9/11. First Three Winners Sunday At Belmont: 9-1-1. Jockey David Cohen rode the first two winners, Say Toba Sandy and Wishful Tomcat. Then Simon P. Husbands rode Haya's Boy to victory in the third race.
- Was it a coincidence? Call it what you want. But this didn't happen at any racetrack. This happened at New York City's home for horse racing -- at a landmark that served as one of the staging areas for emergency vehicles and personnel in the days following 9/11.
- And the races were held only a few minutes after a special ceremony to commemorate the sad anniversary:
- The $2 Pick 3 paid $18.60, but anyone with that priceless ticket will probably want to hold onto it forever
