Belmont Stakes: A Sell Out

The New York Racing Association reports that reserved seating for this year's Belmont Stakes (gr. I) has sold out.

Seating for last year's signature event at the New York area track sold out on May 4, two days before the Kentucky Derby. This year's event sold out more than two weeks prior to the Run for the Roses.

In all, there are 32,941 seats at cavernous Belmont Park, including the dining areas and the box seats. The reserved seats in the clubhouse and grandstand number more than 21,000.
