Updated: Feb 19

I am sure by now your have heard the news that the third jewel in the Triple Crown horse races, the Belmont Stakes, is going to be held at the historic Saratoga Race Course in 2024 due to ongoing construction at Belmont Park. If you haven't heard about the move and what that means for the race and Saratoga Springs, you can read all about it in my recent blog post. There is all kinds of excitement in Saratoga Springs and surrounding areas related to this big race! The main question may be how do I get tickets to this incredible once-in-a-lifetime event? (Well, if you read my blog you know it may be twice-in-a-lifetime, but we will cross that bridge when we get to it!)


To answer that important question about securing tickets, I have some good news and some bad news. We will get the bad news out of the way first...all Reserved Seating for the Belmont Stakes on Saturday, June 8, as well as all Reserved Seating for the other days of the Belmont Stakes Racing Festival (June 6,7 and 9) are SOLD OUT already! But, here is the good news...there are still limited single-day General Admission tickets for the Belmont Stakes and limited 4-day General Admission festival passes available to purchase. You can purchase single day tickets for the Belmont Stakes for $50, or a 4-day festival pass for all racing days for $90 (plus tax/fees). Here is the link to purchase the tickets or you can go directly to Ticketmaster.


These General Admission tickets will provide standing room only access to the Clubhouse, the Grandstand and the Backyard. There is lots of communal seating available and plenty of access to TV's showing the races if you don't opt to fight the crowds and go trackside to see the race live. Just being at the track and experiencing the energy of the people, the big name horses and their trainers will be amazing. And imagine if there is a horse in contention for the Triple Crown. You won't want to miss that!

If you want to be a part of this historic event, I would buy your tickets soon because they went on sale today (February 15) at 10:00 am and will likely sell out soon! I have secured a 4-day festival pass so I can be there to catch all the happenings at the Saratoga Race Course and around Saratoga Springs. If you can't make the race, stay tuned for lots of content so you can feel like you are actually here!
