We are hosting a cook out for the third race of the triple crown. We were thinking of a New York theme since its held in Belmont NY. Any menu ideas?

What about some sort of grilled pork and apple thing? Apples are very New York-y and horses love them too ...

Hmmm, isn't there a recipe on this site that calls for hay? One sec ....

Whatever you decide to serve, you should insist that your guests wear hats ! - crazy hats.

I don't know if there's a “New York” derby food tradition like Kentucky’s. Here are some KY Derby ideas from Food52: https://food52.com/blog...

Belmont track (Hempstead, Long Island, NY) was founded in early 1900s. The track in Saratoga, NY, a few years before that. Some old menus show that they would have served fare such as oysters, chicken salad, lobster salad.

Present day, going to Belmont and other large tracks is more like going to a ball game: franks, nachos, pretzels and beer. So I don’t think there are any traditional “Belmont” dishes (other than beer!).


For a cookout, you could do:

Grilled chicken

Nathan’s hot dogs (or any other good hot dogs)
And all the condiments: mustard, relish, ketchup, pickles, etc.

Devils on Horseback

or
Chevre Devils (chevre-stuffed dates) by gingerroot

Speed Fries inspired by Andy Beyer’s horse racing speed figures
Make paper cones for French fries from pages from racing sheets or his columns in the Washington Post newspaper. In a hurry to get to the finish line? Use supermarket frozen fries. No one cares where hot French fries come from.

Provide a shaker of Cajun salty spice in honor of Calvin Borel (Louisiana jockey)

OTB Dip
Artichoke & parm dip with baguette slices or pita chips, fresh vegetables.
Because it’s all over, done and gone before you know it.


Jockey Silks
- Various drinks in very bright colors (just search drinks on this sight)
- Or ice cream and sorbet in bright colors

Track Dirt Pie
Just like the track on a muddy day: Chocolate Mud Pie or cupcakes with lots of crushed oreo crumbs for topping.
