Yonkers, NY—The Yonkers Raceway summer stakes schedule is full speed ahead starting with the elimination for the Art Rooney Pace this Saturday night, May 20th, and the perfect place for a bird’s eye view is the Empire Terrace, offering “Classic Raceway Dining” trackside on Saturday nights. There will be limited seating for dinner from 6:00-9:30 PM on a first come first-serve basis (no reservations/final seating at 9:00 PM).
In addition, thoroughbred aficionados can watch the second and third jewels of the Triple Crown – the Preakness Stakes this Saturday, May 20th and the Belmont Stakes on Saturday, June 10th – in the Empire Terrace, which will offer special lunch menus on those days.
Each seat offers an individual table-top television so racing zealots can zoom in on the action.
