Highlighted by the 155th running of the Grade 1, $1.5 million Belmont Stakes presented by NYRA Bets – the final leg of horse racing’s Triple Crown – the Belmont Stakes Racing Festival is a three-day celebration of world class racing and entertainment beginning on Thursday, June 8, and culminating on Saturday, June 10. General Admission tickets start at just $30 and will provide fans with access to the trackside apron bench seating, backyard and grandstand concourse.

An American tradition inaugurated in 1867 at Jerome Park Racetrack and moved in 1905 to its now familiar home at Belmont Park, the Belmont Stakes has provided fans with some of the most exciting moments in sports history.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Secretariat’s Triple Crown triumph, which NYRA will commemorate throughout the Belmont Stakes Racing Festival.
