The historic Belmont Park, opened in 1905, encompasses 430 acres. There are two racing schedules at Belmont Park per year, generally running the end of April through the middle of July. The fall meet starts again in the beginning of September and runs through the end of October.
Belmont Park is the home of the running of the Belmont Stakes each year, considered the longest and most difficult part of the ‘Triple Crown’ challenge. Since 1930, only 11 horses have ever won the prestigious Triple Crown, with Secretariat still holding the record at Belmont.
Belmont Park is also available year-round for other events and is a beautifully landscaped park with large open spaces.
