Tickets Information for Belmont Stakes at Saratoga

walking horse through Saratoga crowd“NYRA is thrilled to be able to host the Belmont Stakes at Saratoga Race Course for the first time,” McKenna said. “While it is sure to be as exciting as any weekend in the history of the venue, fans should expect significant changes from an afternoon at the Spa during the summer meet.”

Pat McKenna, NYRA vice president, communications, said in an email that the majority of seating options will be four-day packages covering the duration of the “Belmont Stakes Racing Festival at Saratoga Race Course” from June 6-9. So, for the most part, you won’t be able to get single-day seating.

Also, early access to tickets will be provided to seasonal box holders from both Belmont Park and Saratoga, as well as Saratoga reserved season ticket holders and past Belmont Stakes buyers.

And by following Belmont protocols, you can expect paid admission to be limited to 50,000. That’s the number NYRA implemented two years ago, when the New York Islanders’ home rink, UBS Arena, took over half of the backyard. It’s also the admission cap for Whitney Day and Travers Day at Saratoga.
