Belmont Park Betting Horse Racing Tracks

Belmont Park was originally opened in May, 1905 and it wasn’t strictly for horse racing.

The Belmont Stakes were named after August Belmont, a financier who made quite a name and fortune for himself in New York politics and society.The first post parade in the United States came in the 14th running of the Belmont in 1880. Until then the horses went directly from paddock to post. . In 1890, the Belmont was moved from Jerome Park to Morris Park, a mile and three-eighths track located a few miles east of what is now Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx.

The Belmont was held at Morris Park until Belmont Park’s opening in 1905. The white carnation is the traditional flower of the Belmont Stakes and the blanket requires approximately 350 carnations, glued to green velveteen spread and weighs between 30 and 40 poundsMan o’ War heads the list of Belmont champion sires. Not only did he win the race himself in 1920, but three of his subsequent sires won it as well: American Flag in 1925, Crusader in 1926 and War Admiral in 1937, who went on to win the Triple Crown.
