The Equestris dining room on the third floor is open only on weekends and select holidays during the racing season. The Aqueduct Room on the fourth floor is open only on Wood Memorial Day. Horsemen in stakes races are entitled to complimentary lunch for 2 if the purse value is $100,000 or less or 4 if the purse value is greater than $100,000. Please contact Alysse in Horsemen’s Relations for reservations.
The Horsemen’s Lounge, located on the second floor of the clubhouse, is open to currently licensed NYRA horsemen. Horsemen with a current NYRA badge or family pass can show it at the door for admission. Weekends require wristbands. All guests without NYRA badges will need wristbands every day. The lounge opens when the gates open for live racing. Please email Alysse Jacobs or Teal Albertrani for reservations for a faster check in process.
Current NYRA horsemen’s badges and family passes are valid for paddock entry. If you do not have your badge, go to the Horsemen’s Relations office on the ground floor or the Guest Services office on the second floor to obtain a paddock pass.
Horsemen’s parking is located near the Turf and Field entrance of the clubhouse. Show your NYRA badge for parking.
NYRA does not maintain a block of rooms at any area hotels. We do have a NYRA rate at the Hilton JFK, which is 10 minutes from Aqueduct. Please contact Horsemen’s Relations for further details.
