Oaklawn Park is holding a Bob Baffert look-alike contest as part of its Belmont Stakes (gr. I) festivities June 8.
The promotion kicks off by giving away a special pair of Baffert sunglasses to the first 1,000 fans through the gates. Then the Hot Springs, Ark., track will pay a $500 grand prize each to the man and woman who most resembles the California trainer.
Baffert, who is rarely seen without sunglasses, is making his third attempt since 1997 to win the Triple Crown. If War Emblem wins the Belmont, he'll become the sports' 12th Triple Crown winner.
