The Anthem will be televised on ESPN. He will also sing New York New York from the winners circle right before the actual Belmont Stakes race. That will be televised nationwide on ABC somewhere around 6:00pm EST.
Anthony and his family will be going to Belmont on June 6th to do a dress rehearsal and sound check with the ESPN and ABC camera people as well as being in a parade that evening.
This all came to pass because a NYRA representative saw Anthony sing this past August at the Saratoga Race Track. Anthony is very excited about this opportunity and can not wait to share his gift with an audience nationwide which is estimated to be in the millions.
Anthony's Dad says, "Once Big Brown won the second leg of the triple crown, we knew all eyes would be on Belmont. We are honored that Anthony was asked to sing on such a special occasion and we hope Big Brown will win the Triple Crown!"
It should prove to be yet another amazing step along the path of Anthony's already successful career.

Thanks to all of you for your thoughts and prayers. The weekend was beyond our wildest dreams. Since Saturday night we have heard from 2 people who have connections in Kentucky who want to get him for next year's Derby, and got an email from the Early Morning Show in Australia who want to do a segment on him and the Ellen show called and asked me to send pictures because they want to put it on Ellen's website.
