Emirates Airline, a long-time partner of the New York Racing Association, will serve as the presenting sponsor of the $250,000 True North Handicap (gr. II), one of six graded stakes at Belmont Park on Belmont Stakes (gr. I) day, Saturday, June 11.
On the day of the Belmont Stakes, Emirates Airline will conduct a “Get to know Emirates Airline” contest and award the winner with two business class tickets to Dubai, the hub of the airline’s many destinations in 66 countries. Entry forms and drop boxes will be available in the clubhouse near the Belmont Room on the second floor and the Turf and Field Club on the fourth four. In addition, Emirates Cabin Crew will assist with the distribution of entry forms.
Contest entries will be accepted until one hour before the True North. Contestants who answer the questions correctly will be selected in a draw for the grand prize.
Following the True North Handicap, Emirates Cabin Crew will visit the winner’s circle and present the trophy for the six-furlong dash for horses 3-years-old and up.
“This will be a unique opportunity for customers to test their knowledge of Emirates through simple trivia to win a trip to Dubai and experience our world-class service,” said Nigel Page, Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, Americas.
