Reserved tables in the Saratoga Race Course picnic paddock will be sold exclusively through a random drawing for Belmont Stakes Day on Saturday, June 8, the New York Racing Association, Inc. announced Thursday.

As is the case during the 40-day summer meet, the vast majority of Saratoga's backyard picnic tables — approximately 700 — will be available on a first-come, first-served basis throughout the four-day Belmont Stakes Racing Festival.

Fans may enter the picnic paddock random drawing at beginning Monday, Mar. 25. Approximately 100 picnic tables will be available for purchase through the random drawing (limited to one entry per person, one picnic table per winner). Winners will be notified shortly after the conclusion of the drawing on Friday, April 5, and will have up to 48 hours to complete the ticket purchase through a NYRA sales representative.

Picnic paddock tables accommodate six guests at $75 per person or a total of $450, which includes the price of admission. If a winner previously secured admission for Belmont Stakes Day prior to the drawing, the purchase price will be credited toward the cost of the table.

After the conclusion of the random drawing for Belmont Stakes Day, fans may secure tables in the reserved picnic paddock for the other three days of the Festival, June 6, 7 and 9, via
