Author Topic: Nice Tribute To Hal Belote  (Read 758 times)

« on: July 31, 2006, 06:06:35 PM »

Last Thursday, the aanual Governors Day races were held as part of the Delaware State Fair at Harrington Raceway. As many might know, Hal Belote, a longtime driver/trainer, on the Delaware and New Jersey circuits, was, tragically, killed in a race at Harrington Raceway last spring.

One of the trotting events, a $ 100K trot for 3 YO C-G, that day was the Hal Belote Memorial Race, a fitting race as Hal, his father, now deceased, and his brother, were "trotting men". Although he didn't won, his brother, Sammy, competed in the race, finishing fourth.

In post race activities, the track horsemen and Harrington Raceway presented Hal's widow and two children, a check in excess of $ 50K.

Drivers, trainers, owners, and fans. here, are all going to miss one of their native-born sons - Hal Belote.
