Everything You Want to Know About Belmont Park
Belmont Park is one of America’s most famous racetracks and can trace its history back to 1895 when the Westchester Racing Association was created and began racing at Morris Park in the Bronx. In 1902, the syndicate invested in land in Elmont, New York which would become Belmont Park in 1905.
Belmont Park is the largest racetrack in North America with a dirt course 1 ½ miles around and along with and inner and an outer turf course that are 1 3/16th and 1 5/16th respectively, and is probably best known for being the home of the Belmont Stakes – the third and final jewel of the elusive Triple Crown which also includes the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes.
Belmont Park has hosted just about every major star in Thoroughbred racing during the last century and it is widely known as one of the premier racing venues in America. The racetrack runs 88 days that are split into a spring meet which includes the storied Belmont Stakes, and a fall meet which includes the Jockey Club Gold Cup for 3-year olds and up on the main track.
