The U.S. Army’s oldest active band and even traces its roots to the American Revolutionary War. Don’t miss them at the Belmont Stakes performing “God Bless America” at 11 AM and the “National Anthem” at 4:20 PM trackside in the Winner’s Circle.

West Point Jumpers

Horses aren’t the only ones racing towards the finish line. Stick around after West Point’s National Anthem by watching the thrilling West Point Parachute team jump from thousands of feet above Belmont Park race track!
