Schenectady to Belmont Park

In the 1980s, many Schenectady racing fans made the trip downstate to Belmont Park  to either work or watch the Belmont Stakes. The four winners from 1982 to 1985 were trained by the great Woody Stephens.  Conquistador Cielo, Caveat and Swale, all ridden by Laffit Pincay were the winners in ’82, ’83’ and ’84, and Creme Fraiche, with Eddie Maple in the irons, won it in ’85.
