President of Donegal Racing Jerry Crawford was seen in the Belmont Park paddock on Sunday, doling out $2 win tickets on his horse Ballagh Rocks to young kids hanging out on the rail just prior to the running of the G3 Poker Stakes. Ballagh Rocks went on to score a hard-running victory by holding off the favorite through the stretch, and Donegal's Twitter account responded to a fan, hockey's Chris Tatti, who'd noted the win ticket exchange:
