The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) has offered several updates to morning training policies for fans during the Belmont Stakes Racing Festival at Saratoga, the entity said in a Friday release.

Fans may attend morning training at the main track between the hours of 7 a.m. and 10 a.m. (all times Eastern) on Thursday, June 6 and Sunday, June 9, and can enter the venue only through Gates C and D. These gates are located at the intersection of Wright Street and Frank Sullivan Place, outside of the 1863 Club.

In an adjustment to the previously announced policy, fans who attend morning training on Thursday and Sunday may claim the free picnic tables in the backyard between the hours of 7 a.m. and 10 a.m. Similar to standard procedure during the Saratoga summer meet, fans will be required to exit the venue at 10 a.m. prior to the official opening of gates at 11 a.m.

There will be no access to morning training on the main track on Friday, June 7 and Saturday, June 8. Gates will open to the public at 10:30 a.m. on Friday and at 9 a.m. on Saturday, at which time fans may claim the free picnic tables in the backyard.

Morning training will be open to fans at the Oklahoma Training Track on Thursday, Friday and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m.

On-site parking will not be available during morning training hours.
