Just because their corporate logo is on Belmont’s biggest star, that doesn’t mean the Hooters Girls will be welcome in the winner’s circle.
The NEW YORK DAILY NEWS gallops along word that the tight tank tops & short orange shorts fashioned by the restaurant’s waitresses would not be considered “proper attire” for Belmont Park. The reaction comes from Hooters’ earlier claim that the Girls will be there in full uniform ready to celebrate if Big Brown clinches the Triple Crown.
But the buxom babes aren’t banned outright - they just need to change their clothes. [And we’ll be happy to assist ;)]
The New York Racing Association says that ladies attending the Stakes are encouraged to wear “dresses, skirts or pantsuits” with “no jeans, shorts or abbreviated wear permitted.”
So, if the tailors in the Hooters apparel department can stitch together some kind of bright orange, owl-covered summer frock by tomorrow, the Girls should be able to trot into the race track with no problems.
