New York racing fans in search of simulcast action from Churchill Downs on Kentucky Derby weekend should look no further than Aqueduct Racetrack and Belmont Park.

The tracks will allow visitors to watch and wager on Kentucky racing on May 4 and 5, in addition to live thoroughbred competition throughout New York.

First race post at Churchill Downs on Oaks and Derby days is 10:30 a.m. and parking lots at Aqueduct and Belmont Park will open at 9:45 a.m., with admission gates opening at 10 a.m. on both days. General parking at Belmont is free, while at Aqueduct there is a $2 charge.

In addition to all of the simulcast action from Churchill Downs, Belmont will offer live racing on both Friday and Saturday, which marks the return of graded grass racing to New York with a pair of Grade 3, $150,000 turf contests, the Fort Marcy, and the Beaugay for fillies and mares.
