Billionaires and breeders are both champing at the bit before the Belmont Stakes.
We hear those expected at the race this weekend include horseman and former US ambassador to Finland Earle Mack and wife Carol, Peter Brant and Stephanie Seymour, and Pepe and Emilia Fanjul.
Also at the track will be former Yankee manager Joe Torre, Washington Post heiress Cathy Graham, and hardcore punk pioneer turned top artist Raymond Pettibon.
Leading to Saturday’s action, we hear the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation will host a Bryant Park Grill fund-raiser Thursday honoring breeder Frank Stronach, while over at Rao’s there will be a presser for undefeated Justify with trainer Bob Baffert and jockey Mike Smith.
