Triple Crown fever is striking everywhere, and anticipation is high for American Pharoah’s bid on Saturday, June 6 with the 147th Belmont Stakes.

With a big celebration planned for Belmont Stakes Saturday, The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono has announced that jockey Victor Espinoza will be appearing for autographs and photos on Tuesday, June 2 from 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on the Sky Bridge between the casino and the racetrack. This is a wristband-only event, and fans may obtain their wristband starting at 1:00 p.m., with a very limited amount available.

Only the authorized photo, which will be distributed at the signing, will be autographed, and a professional photographer will be on hand for photos, which will then be posted on the Mohegan Sun Pocono Facebook page for sharing.

Belmont Stakes Saturday will be a huge party, with live harness racing at 3:30 p.m. until 5:00 p.m., and 12 additional races immediately following the 147th Belmont Stakes. Food trucks, the “Belmont Breeze” in souvenir glasses, and plenty of bars with ice cold beverages will be on the apron for the fans to enjoy in anticipation of post time and history in the making. American Pharoah merchandise will be for sale on the apron as well.

Espinoza has won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes three times, riding War Emblem in 2002, California Chrome in 2014, and American Pharoah this year. As of this date, he is the first jockey in history to enter the Belmont Stakes with a third opportunity to win the Triple Crown.
