The Belmont Stakes Seating Guide

** Buy Belmont Stakes Tickets **

The Belmont Stakes takes place at the famous Belmont Park and is the third and final leg of the Triple Crown. Belmont Park is located around 14 miles from Manhattan and is accessible via Taxi, Subway and Bus. At the bottom of this page we provide directions to Belmont Park.

Seats under cover at Belmont Park - If the rain is falling straight down the reserved seats on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th levels are protected from the rain. However, if the wind is blowing in the direction of the stands, almost everyone is at risk of getting wet. The only exceptions are the people sitting in the 3rd and 4th levels and inside the Garden Terrace. See picture below.

Unlike the Preakness Stakes and the Kentucky Derby, Belmont Park does not have infield seating. Instead they have an infield like atmosphere in the paddock area, complete with concessions and betting windows. Though not as wild and crazy as the Derby and Preakness infields, the Belmont Park paddock area is still a great time. One important note…on Belmont Stakes day, Belmont Park does NOT permit anyone to bring alcoholic beverages into the facility. If they search your cooler and find booze, it will be confiscated! So be sure to bring a few extra dollars to purchase concessions.

Grandstand Preferred Reserved 3F-3M - Located on the 3rd LEVEL just beneath the Garden Terrace Restaurant. The seats in these sections provide Clubhouse Admission. If you're just looking for the best place to watch the race outside, this is it. Sections 3F to 3M are all terrific seats. Our recommendation for best value seats on the 3rd level would be Section 3M which gives you Clubhouse access, amazing views of the track and places you right IN FRONT of the finish line.

Box Seats - Located between sections E and M on the 2nd Level, Box seats are configured six seats to a box with access to waiter service and admission into the Trophy Club. The Boxes run from F1 - F37 with F37 being closest to the start finish line. Access to Box seats is very limited for the Belmont Stakes as they are mostly given out to horse owners and staff. For this reason they can be very expensive. Each box includes a monitor to watch replays and place bets on the races.

Garden Terrace Restaurant - If you're looking for an indoor, climate controlled environment with excellent views above the finish line where you can dine and watch the race, this is it. The seating consists of 6 top tables with row A next to the glass and row B just next to row A. Located on the fourth floor of the Clubhouse with an excellent view of the entire racetrack. Cinematic in scope, the Garden Terrace is Long Island’s largest dining hall, boasting tiered, track side seating and floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the entire Belmont Park oval–an awe-inspiring landscape. Aside from unbeatable, arena-like views of the finish line, the temperature-controlled venue also has a television at every table, a gourmet buffet, and live piano music. The Garden Terrace has designated reserved seats and access to betting windows  This is the place to come for indoor seating and great views of the entire Belmont track.

Belmont Stakes Overview

About Belmont Park

Belmont Park has played host to almost every major star in Thoroughbred racing during the last century and is firmly established as one of the world’s great sporting sites. At a mile and half, it is the largest dirt track in North America and it, along with Aqueduct Racetrack and Saratoga Race Course, is operated by the New York Racing Association, Inc., which in 2008 earned the state franchise to operate these three tracks for another 25 years. Set on 445 acres of property, Belmont Park has been called the “Taj Mahal of American Racing.”

The track is located in Elmont New York, just outside of Queens and only 15 miles from Manhattan. The 1.5 mile oval has both grass and dirt tracks, with the Belmont Stakes being run on the dirt. There are three types of seating options: General (least expensive, party atmosphere), grandstands, and clubhouse (most expensive, classy and upscale). Generally, tickets become pricier the higher you go since they offer a better view of the entire track. Parking opens at 8:15am on Belmont day with racing kicking off at 11:45am. Here are directions to Belmont Park from Manhattan. Drive time is approximately 30 minutes.
