A Small Guide to Buying Kentucky Derby Tickets

Published by:

Some people think that it is not possible to get the Kentucky Derby Tickets unless you were a high profile personal like a celebrity or top shot businessman. Some also believe that the people who are somehow related to the horse racing business can get the tickets easily. There was also the time when you had to send a letter to the address of Churchill Downs and request for the tickets. But you had to be very lucky in order to get the tickets that way. There were only very few who were given the tickets in this manner. Everyone else’s requests were rejected.


Thankfully, the things have changed today. You don’t have to do this anymore to get the tickets. In fact, it has become extremely easy to buy the tickets for this event. For many people who believed it was not possible to get the tickets at all it is in fact relatively much easier. But before you buy the ticket what you really need to know is how much can you actually spend on the tickets. There are different options at different prices. If you want to go with the most basic Kentucky Derby ticket then you will get general admission to the infield. From here you can view the race tracks. However, you can watch the race on the large screens. What’s great is that the Churchill Downs now boasts of the high-quality, 4K resolution screens.

The tickets to this area costs $50 (or more if you choose additional services). What’s even better is that the ticket is usually available even at the last minute. This means that you don’t have to worry about the advanced booking. This place could get a little crammed. But people say that it is a real party out there.

You can also buy the premium tickets. The box ticket prices are quite high (as high as a few thousand dollars). But you will be able to see the race track directly. These premium tickets get sold pretty fast and the price also increases as the number of tickets goes down. So, you will need to buy well in advance in order to make sure you get the ticket and also you save money.

If you are thinking about buying the ticket in advance, you should find a broker. Thanks to internet, we have the brokers available online as well. In fact, there are some websites from where you can buy the Kentucky Derby 2017 premium tickets at the discounted prices. This means that even if you stay in another country and are planning to come over for the event you can book the ticket in advance.

It would be a great idea to look at the overview of the seating arrangements to make your choice. Even the premium tickets are available in a price range. Take a look at the different options available and buy the ticket according to your budget.

Plan the transportation and accommodation beforehand. This will ensure that you have a wonderful experience of Kentucky Derby. Check this website: to find out more.
