ELMONT - The Belmont Stakes are just days away, and with a Triple Crown win on the line, Nassau businesses are gearing up for heavy crowds. More than 100,000 people are expected at Belmont Park for the big race Saturday. For nearby shops and businesses, that may mean a huge spike in services and sales. It's still unclear how much revenue the Stakes will generate for the local economy, but local officials say the exposure is priceless.
