Two-Day Special Wagers for Belmont Festival



The upcoming Belmont Stakes Racing Festival, to be held June 3-5, will include a selection of six two-day special wagers, the New York Racing Association (NYRA) announced Saturday. Headlined by the GI Belmont S. presented by NYRA Bets on Saturday, June 5, the three-day festival will include 17 stakes races, with eight Grade I contests on Belmont Day.

The two-day Pick 6 begins Friday, June 4, with the GIII True North S. and concludes with the Saturday, June 5 Belmont S. It will feature 15% takeout and a $0.20 base wager. Friday's GII Belmont Gold Cup S. and GII New York S. are included in the wager, as are Saturday's GI Jackpocket Jaipur S. and the GI Hill 'n' Dale Metropolitan H.

The festival will also feature a two-day Pick 4, a wager called the “New York Double,” a Gold Cup/Belmont S. double, a two-day filly and mare double, and a two-day Belmont sprint double. In addition, the traditional $1 Pick 6 with carryover will be offered each day, as will an early, middle, and late Pick 5. For more information, visit
