Went to watch Triple Crown race in 2014 with my gf. We are both in early to mid 30s. This place was full of rowdy drunkards who knew nothing about horses and were not there to admire the sport. Most were trying to pick up girls many of whom were dressed showing their butt crease. There was zero dress code.... More

This track is huge and very pretty. Lots of good visibility to the horses in the paddock. Lots of options for food and drinks. Visibility during the race is quite good, especially on the upper floors. Would definitely go back if given the chance....

Good experience overall... The track patron is the typical thoroughbred fan.. many locals.. and the activity on the lower area, near the track apron, was much different than the dining area.. Scenic, huge track and oval (biggest in racing 1 1/2 miles).... worth the trip.. Took the Long Island Railroad from Penn Station and it was a deal for $14... More

I went to Belmont on Saturday, May 2, with two friends to watch the races and see the Kentucky Derby on the live webcams. We sat at the rail for the first few hours until it got too crowded. We started to get hungry so and friend and I got on line for hot dogs at the window on the... More

Belmont Race Track has over 400 acres of mostly beautifully sculpted grounds. The landscape is something to behold. The Clubhouse restaurant has great tasting food. It is a great experience to see the horses up close & personal as they are walked by the Paddock area. Being the 'last leg' of the Triple Crown races, Belmont Stakes Day is the... More

The lineup to the women's washroom was 1.5 hours long. Even though we bought seats, we couldn't see the race due to people standing on chairs in front of us with security guards standing right there. We bought parking tickets and still had to argue with the attendant to let us through. We missed the first two races because of... More
