Getting Into The Purple Tie Stakes
There is a $5 entrance fee to get into Belmont, which can be avoided for those who purchased their tickets by the end of the day Thursday, 9/20.
To get free entry into Belmont Park, go to the Will Call window located in the Clubhouse near the Gold Parking Lot (see figure 1 on the map below). Once there, give your name (or the name of whoever purchased your ticket) and party size to the Belmont attendant
For those driving, we'd suggest that you pull your car up to the Clubhouse, collect your Belmont entry tickets and then drive around to the Red Parking lot (see figure 2) and enter through the LIRR/Grandstand Entrance
Attendees who purchased tickets after 9/20 will have to pay the $5 Belmont entry fee- the most convenient entrance will be the LIRR/Grandstand entrance.
Once Inside Belmont Park
The Purple Tie Stakes is held in Belmont's, "Top of The Stretch" located on the western side of the park in front of the grandstands (see figure 3). Purchasers who claimed their tickets at the will call window simply have to show their tickets to the MMF attendant for entry; if you purchased after the 12pm Thursday cutoff, we will have your name on a list.
We will be going to Trinity Pub, where anyone wearing purple can get discounted drinks
