Hidden deep inside New York's famed Belmont racetrack, below the grandstand and past rows of betting windows, is a plain sign tucked almost out of sight, which reads, "Barbershop."

There, inside a cavernous cinder-block room with three old-fashioned barbershop chairs, you'll find the incomparable barbers of Belmont: Sal, Tony and Uri.
