Northeast Equine Expo to Kick Off Belmont Stakes Race

Written by Melissa Argueta Friday, 28 May 2010 08:15

Event Expected to Draw Thousands to Local Communities

Get ready to horse around as the first annual Northeast Equine Expo comes to town. Expected to draw nearly 30,000 people to the Long Island communities of Elmont and Floral Park, the expo will be the kick-off event for the final leg of the Triple Crown Belmont Stakes Race on Memorial Day weekend, May 29-30.

Expo president and founder Jessica Walsh, a Massachusetts native, first visited the majestic Belmont Park with her grandfather when she was a young child. An avid horse enthusiast, she came up with the idea of creating an equine expo after realizing that New York had yet to host one that incorporated all equestrian disciplines. Through a lot of perseverance and determination, Walsh enlisted a passionate team of staff members to go about the daunting task of organizing the big event. “It’s turned from a dream into a reality and I want to share it with everyone and inspire them,” she said.

On the boys’ side, the team is led by UConn-bound Captain Matthew Granata, a threat in any race from the 100 to the 800.
