America's Triple Crown horse racing season is almost over. On June 8th, racing fans will bet and cheer for the 2013 Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York.

It's the 145th running of the Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York, one of the oldest thoroughbred races in North America. Belmont Park is home of the Belmont Stakes, the final jewel of the Triple Crown races. The park has the largest dirt racecourse of any thoroughbred track not only in North America but the world at a mile and a half (2414 m).

Winners of the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes often make for some intense rematches between the horse racing's top contenders - a level of competition that makes for even greater viewing for horse racing fans in attendance or for those watching it on television.

Belmont Park in Elmont, New York, is considered one of the elite race tracks in the sport of thoroughbred horse racing. In addition to the Belmont Stakes, other major races contested on the dirt at the track include the Jockey Club Gold Cup, the Woodward Stakes, the Suburban Handicap, and the Memorial Day standby - the Metropolitan Handicap, also known as the Met Mile. Notable turf (grass) races include the Bowling Green Handicap, Man o'War Stakes, and Turf Classic.

Belmont Park was closed for replacement of its unsafe grandstand and clubhouse structure from 1963 until May of 1968, during which the Belmont race meetings were moved to Aqueduct Racetrack at South Ozone Park in Queens.

Spanning 430 acres situated just outside New York City, in the adjacent Nassau County suburb of Elmont, the Belmont Park race track is world-famous as the home of the Belmont Stakes.


First opened May 4, 1905. Both the Belmont Park and Belmont Stakes were named after financier and sportsman August Belmont, Sr. Belmont Park features the Main Track, or the dirt racecourse, which has a circumference of 1½ miles, Widener Turf Course at 1 5/16 miles and 27 feet, and Inner Turf Course at 1 3/16 miles plus 103 feet.

With an attendance capacity of 85,000 to 100,000 - the largest in horse racing, Belmont Park has a total seating capacity of 32,941 and parking capacity of 18,500 cars. Post time is at 1 pm daily, and parking gates open at 10:45 am daily.
