I love going to Belmont Park for the races and am sorry it's only open for live races in the spring into the summer and then again in the fall (September and October). The paddock is beautiful. One can see the great race horses and superstar jockeys and famous horse trainers up close. You can also see the stable ponies... More

Belmont can be as cheap or as expensive as you want to make it. The admission is only $5 as is preferred parking. The outside picnic area is park like and perfect on a nice day. We brought our own food and drinks, you just can’t bring glass in. Just about everyone won at least a small amount on the... More

Even if you're not interested in horse racing - spending the day at Belmont for the stakes is an incredible afternoon. Make sure to watch the horses walk around the back paddock before each race so you can figure out who you want to bet on! If you go on stakes day plan to get there early and deal with... More

Attended the Belmont Stakes in June. The track was well prepared for this year's non triple crown crowd.

While visiting NYC we decided to go to a horse race. Just 25 mins outside the city, it was a delightful break from the hustle and bustle of the concrete jungle. Admission is only $5. There is plenty of seating and the atmosphere is safe and fun. Bring a picnic! Food is expensive and mediocre, however there are huge areas... More

This is an historical place. Belmont racetrack is one of the oldest racetrack in the us. As many places, Belmont park can be cheap or an expensive place depending on of much you bet. Try to expend a little money and you will find this place exciting.

Great race track, clean and children friendly. Outside picNick areas for the family. If you love watching horses race this is a great track to visit. Plus it runs the Belmont stakes the third leg of the triple crown.
