Frank Sinatra's voice returns to New York, New York

Posted:

Sinatra is 'king of the hill' again at the Belmont Stakes.

The New York Racing Association is returning to Frank Sinatra's classic version of "New York, New York" when the horses step onto the track for next Saturday's $1 million race at Belmont Park. The change comes a year after NYRA replaced Sinatra's tune with the Jay-Z/Alicia Keys rendition of "Empire State of Mind."

No reason was given for the return to "New York, New York," which had greeted the post parade of horses from 1997-2009.

"Sidewalks of New York" was performed before the Belmont until Sinatra took charge in '97.
