The Belmont S. week community activities kick off Saturday with the Belmont/Elmont parade and are followed by the Belmont S. Run/Walk Sunday. The NYRA jockey colony will make their annual trip to the Ronald McDonald House on Long Island Wednesday, June 5 and Belmont Park hosts Community Day Thursday, June 6.
“Belmont Park and the Belmont Stakes are a part of the fabric of our community,” said NYRA CEO & President Dave O’Rourke. “That’s why we make it a priority to extend the festivities beyond the gates of Belmont Park and into neighboring villages and towns. The Belmont Stakes Racing Festival is a celebration that reflects the interests of our many community partners who take pride in demonstrating their support for this internationally acclaimed sporting event that we have the good fortune to host each year.”
