Join us at Churchill Downs for the most electric two minutes in sport as you experience the stylish Kentucky Derby the way it was meant to be seen – up close and personal from your Millionaire's Row seating. See the sweat glistening on the shoulders of thoroughbred giants, sip mint juleps in the prestigious clubhouse and attend the hottest celebrity-filled parties in town. Where you sit at the track is paramount to your experience of the race and these are the best seats in the house. The better vantage point is high up in the stadium and close to the finish line. This way you can see the winning stallion ride into victory with your own two eyes!
The wind is still, the sun is shining and the subtle scent of mint perfume is the air... Welcome the legendary Kentucky Derby. The hypnotic drawl and extravagant hats of the Southern aristocracy lulls one into a dreamlike trance, until suddenly the spell is broken as 20 of the fastest horses in the world burst out of the gates. A mighty roar erupts from the crowd as 80 hoofs carrying up to a half-ton of thoroughbred muscle pound around a 1 ¼ mile dirt track over the space of roughly 90 seconds in pursuit of the single most coveted trophy in horse racing.
Speak to your destination expert to customize your experience of the Derby, add more private tours to private touring or even an evening out at one of the various VIP parties taking place this weekend.
