Track Info

Belmont Park is a major thoroughbred horse racing facility located in the hamlet of Elmont, New York in Nassau County on Long Island (just outside of New York City). Its mile-and-a-half (2.4 km) main track is the largest dirt course in Thoroughbred racing. It first opened May 4, 1905.

The dirt racecourse known officially as the Main Track and nicknamed Big Sandy by racing followers has a circumference of 1½ miles (2,414 m). Immediately inside of this is the Widener Turf Course (named after the Widener family that has a long and prestigious history in American horse racing) spanning 1 5/16 miles plus 27 feet (2,120 m), which in turn rings an Inner Turf Course 1 3/16 miles plus 103 feet (1,942 m) round. On the Main Track, it is 1,097 feet (334 m) from the top of the stretch to the finish line, and the segment between the wire and the start of the first (clubhouse) turn covers 843 feet (257 m) (this latter segment is shorter by approximately 165 feet [50 m] on both of the turf courses, in order to accommodate the two chutes that exist on the Widener Turf Course, from which turf races of one mile [1,609 m] and 1 1/16 miles [1,710 m] are started; an additional chute exists for 1 1/16-mile [1,710 m] races on the inner turf course).
