A Champion Will Be Crowned

May 22, 2019

After The Kentucky Derby and The Preakness, The Belmont Stakes completes the season of thoroughbred horse racing. In fact, it is the oldest of these prestigious races and one of the oldest races in the entire country. If you are a close follower of these races, you already know that this year has been unpredictable and exhilarating. From June 6-8, you have the opportunity to be a part of a 151-year tradition by attending the 2019 Belmont Stakes Racing Festival. Belmont Park is under 30 minutes from the Garden City Hotel, and transportation to the race is quite easy.

While you're there, don’t forget to try the official drink of the Belmont Stakes, the Belmont Jewel. This delightful cocktail is made with Woodford Reserve bourbon and is perfect for the festival atmosphere. Plus, the Belmont Jewel will also be available at The King Bar and the Patio Bar by Chef David Burke. Even if you can't make it to the race track, you can enjoy the races at The Garden City Hotel which has proudly been the official hotel of The Belmont Stakes for 150 years! Whether you predict the perfect trifecta at Belmont Park or prefer the race day atmosphere at The Garden City Hotel, race season is one of the most exciting times of the year.
