Triple Crown race could be in Saratoga’s future
Saratoga Springs business owners like what they’re hearing from NYRA – that Saratoga is the first choice for hosting the Belmont in 2025, if necessary.
However, Saratoga has never hosted a Triple Crown race. That could change in June 2025.
Belmont Park is scheduled to undergo a nearly half-billion-dollar renovation starting soon after next year’s Belmont Stakes. It’s such a big project, completely rebuilding the grandstand and the tracks, that there’s a good chance it won’t be done in time for the 2025 Belmont Stakes.
All of this depends on the construction timeline at Belmont. McKenna says they’ll have a better handle on the schedule in the next couple of months.
