Attending The Belmont Stakes

While the Kentucky Derby and Preakness are known for their raucous, fraternity-style infield parties and over-the-top fashion, the Belmont Stakes is a more understated affair. Use this section to find the best advice on attending the Belmont Stakes.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • General Admission tickets, at $10 for the grandstand and $20 for the Clubhouse, are available at the gate on race day. Crowds as high as 120,000 attended the Belmont Stakes earlier this decade, but NYRA raised admission prices and no longer allows patrons to bring in their own alcohol on Belmont Stakes Day. This has dampened attendance somewhat in recent years, but it allows fans who come to see the races—rather than to party—to enjoy themselves in relative comfort.
  • The Long Island Railroad, a commuter railroad, runs dedicated trains to Belmont Park from Manhattan's Penn Station, Brooklyn's Flatbush Avenue Terminal, and Jamaica Station. For information on fares, ticket-buying, handicap accessibility and travel tips, visit the LIRR’s Belmont Stakes page.
