In addition to a stakes-filled day of live racing featuring a quartet of important prep races for the Summit of Speed, Calder Casino & Race Course will offer its guests a full afternoon of dining, entertainment, and simulcast wagering options on Saturday, June 9, leading right up to the 144th running of the Belmont Stakes and I’ll Have Another’s run at Triple Crown immortality.
