Reserved Seat Applications for the 150th running of the Belmont Stakes on Saturday, June 8th, 2019, will be available as soon as a final agreement to continue our franchise is reached with the legislature.
Anyone who applied for Belmont Stakes seats last year through the lottery system will automatically be sent an application for the 2019 Belmont Stakes. If you did not participate in the Belmont Stakes reserved seat lottery last year, or if you have changed your mailing information, the Reserved Seat Application Form will be available to download from the website, or you can request that an application be mailed to you by e-mailing email@example.com. If you choose the latter, please be sure to give us your complete mailing address, not just your email address.
