Planning on watching The Belmont Stakes this weekend?

The final race of the Triple Crown is taking place tomorrow (Saturday June 8), and North Fork horse race enthusiasts don’t have to travel far for a chance to win green on their fan favorite horse.

Gamblers can place bets at Founders Tavern on Main Road in Southold.  It is the only location on the North Fork where you can place a bet with Suffolk Off-Track Betting. Founders staff will be on hand to help you place your bets.

“It’s a fun atmosphere, it’s fun to root all together,” said Susie Smith, bartender at Founders who has been serving up cocktails during horse races the past seven years.

This year Founders Tavern will feature the “Belmont Jewel,” an official drink of the Belmont.

1 oz. Bourbon (Woodford Reserve is the official Bourbon of the race)

2 oz. Lemonade

1 oz. Pomegranate Juice

Founders Tavern is located at 55500 Main Road in Southold.
