Hollywood Park will issue the first 10,000 patrons a free $2 win ticket on Smarty Jones on Saturday as he bids to become the first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978.
The souvenir ticket, which can be cashed, will bear the Belmont logo, the name Smarty Jones and the betting number.
First live post time at Hollywood Park will be moved ahead 30 minutes to 12:50 p.m. to accommodate the import of the entire card from Belmont Park. The Belmont Stakes, scheduled for 3:38 p.m. (PDT), runs between the fifth and sixth Hollywood Park races.
The on-track feature is the 53rd running of the $175,000 Honeymoon Breeders' Cup Handicap (gr. IIT).
