The 2019 Belmont Stakes Racing Festival will feature a number of exciting attractions, the New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) announced.
Featuring a variety of world-class racing and entertainment attractions, the festival, which is now in its fifth year as a three-day event, will take place at Belmont Park between Thursday, June 6 and Saturday, June 8. A total of 18 stakes races will take place over the three days, including eight Grade 1 races on Belmont Stakes Day (Saturday, June 8).
"Last year, a sold-out crowd celebrated as Justify raced into the history books by winning the Belmont Stakes to become just the 13th Triple Crown winner in history," said NYRA CEO and President Chris Kay. "The 2019 Belmont Stakes Racing Festival will offer all the thrills of the very best in thoroughbred racing combined with world-class entertainment, premium hospitality and tremendous food and beverage offerings all with a distinctly New York vibe. This is a must-see event and we encourage fans to secure their tickets now for three of the best, most exciting days on the sports calendar."
Multi-platinum hip-hop artist Flo Rida is also scheduled to headline the entertainment lineup for the event on Saturday, June 8. Immediately following the end of the day’s live racing events, Flo Rida will perform a special post-race concert near the ‘Top of the Stretch’ at Belmont Park.
