Monmouth Park Racetrack and Belmont Park in Elmont, N.Y., have teamed up to coordinate post times for the their racing seasons.  Belmont, which opened on April 26, will have a first post of 1:05 p.m., while Monmouth’s post will be 12:50 p.m. when the track opens on May 11. 

          “It’s what our fans have been asking for, plain and simple,” said Bob Kulina, president of Darby Development LLC, operators of Monmouth Park Racetrack.  “The new post-time schedules should ensure 15 minutes between Monmouth and Belmont races.” 

          Belmont Park’s spring/summer meeting, highlighted by the Belmont Stakes on June 8, runs through July 14.  Monmouth Park’s season, which goes through Oct. 6, will once again be topped by the $1 million Haskell Invitational on July 28.
