Insider Access

Outside of seating and hospitality, Official Ticket Packages also come with insider access that is exclusive to Belmont Experience. 

With an Official Ticket Package, guests will enjoy:

  • Trophy Presentation and Photo Op in the Winner's Circle
  • Photo Op with the Belmont Stakes and/or Triple Crown Trophy
  • Backstretch Tour

Early Access to Tickets

Official Ticket Packages from Belmont Experiences typically go on sale just days or a few weeks following the conclusion of the previous year's Belmont Stakes.

This gives guests a head start over the general public on seating options and availability. For reference, general admission tickets to the 2020 Belmont Stakes are not on sale as of November 2019.

General admission tickets allow guests access for the Grandstand Apron and the Grandstand building. These tickets also offer views of the paddock and the path that horses enter the track through.

While it's not included with a general admission ticket, there are several food options for those attending the Belmont Stakes this way. There are multiple food trucks set up around the outside of the track, plus general admission guests have access to the concessions available in the Grandstand building.
