Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) May 22, 2013
Sales of 2013 Belmont Stakes tickets have been brisk following the recent Preakness Stakes and though Orb will not be running for the Triple Crown the fans are still excited about the race and the stands will be packed. There are still good seats available at Preferred Seating Tickets for most seat locations including the highly sought after Clubhouse and Preferred Grandstand seats near the finish line.
The Belmont Stakes is the fourth most attended horse race in North America and as the third leg of the Triple Crown, it has drawn a furious amount of interest anytime a horse has a chance to win all three races. The last horse to win the complete package was all the way back in 1978 when Affirmed followed up the 1977 win by Seattle Slew. The 35 year absence of a Triple Crown winner shows just how difficult the task is to win all three legs and why it’s so coveted in horse racing.
The Belmont Stakes is one of 5 races at Belmont Park on race day and the $1 million dollar purse will attract the best horses in the country healthy enough and ready to join the race. The owners of the Preakness Stakes winners Oxbow and Kentucky Derby’s Orb may enter their horses in the Belmont but are taking a wait and see attitude with still time to spare to make the decision.
Ticket prices for the Belmont Stakes are currently running as little as $26 each for reserved grandstand seating and much less for the general admission grandstand. The best seats at the finish line in either the Clubhouse or the Preferred Grandstand will start at about $55 for the third deck and go up from there.
Preferred Seating Tickets is the online marketplace for sold out and hard to find tickets for any concert sports or theater event. Horse racing tickets are available for all the major races including the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes as well as all major sporting events across the country.
