Kentucky Derby and Oaks fans who have registered online at www.churchilldowns/tickets
for the opportunity to purchase tickets to the 2013 renewals of those
events at Churchill Downs will be contacted via e-mail the morning of
Wednesday, Nov. 14 with details of the online offering of more than
3,000 first turn trackside seats.
The new stadium section, numbered Section 110, is located in an area of the first turn,
traditionally referred to as the "Clubhouse turn," that had in recent
years been home to the Trackside Village, a two-story hospitality tent
constructed specifically for Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks Week
The seats available in Section 110 are Churchill Downs' first
"tip-up" stadium seats, complete with cup-holder. About one-third of 30
ascending rows of seats will be under cover, with easy access from all
Section 110 seats to a food and drink concourse and an ample supply of
betting windows and restrooms located on its ground floor.
Pricing for the two-day ticket package for Kentucky
Derby and Oaks will range from $698 for uncovered seats to $799 for
seats located under cover.
The new seating and hospitality venue in Section 110
replaces the Infield Club, a Kentucky Derby and Oaks hospitality venue
that had been located in the infield over the past three years. The
Section 110 hospitality options are significantly enhanced as seats and
the view of the track are located in the Clubhouse on the famous first
turn, and food and beverage options now include alcohol and in-seat
