Belmont Stakes Information
The Belmont is generally not a sold-out event unless a Triple Crown is possible. In fact, it is treated almost like any other race at Belmont Park. Tickets run as cheap as $5. Even if the race does sell out, there are thousands of first-come, first-served seats that go on sale the morning of the race. Gates open at 8:30 am.
For advance information on future Belmont Stakes, call 718-641-4700 x732. Applications will be mailed on March 1. For group seating information (20 or more tickets), call 888-285-5961; group seats are available starting January 1. For general Belmont info call 516-488-6000.

The Belmont, unlike Derby and Preakness, does not have an infield party. However, coolers are allowed in the Grandstand Backyard and Grandstand Apron areas (although not in the clubhouse). The Grandstand Backyard is a large open area with access to betting windows, and is similar to an infield party; this is the place to be if you're looking for an infield party at Belmont.
Belmont Travel Information
Flights into New York are generally unaffected by the Belmont. The two New York City airports, LaGuardia and Kennedy, are much closer than New Jersey's Newark International. Book your flight through johnnyroadtrip.com!
Hotels in New York are expensive, but vary greatly depending on where you stay. Book your hotel through johnnyroadtrip.com to get the best rates and offerings in the city.
If you are within striking distance of the track, making a day trip is certainly the cheapest alternative.
Future Belmont Stakes Dates
The Belmont is always held three weeks after the Preakness, or on what would be the sixth Saturday in May.
