Clubhouse Purple Official Ticket Package

Clubhouse Purple ticket holders will be seated on the third floor of the clubhouse in sections 312 and 313. The best part about sitting on the third floor is it allows for guests to have an overhead view of the racetrack. These two sections are the last on the third floor, right at the perfect vantage point to see the photo finish. Those seated in rows D and up will be under cover and those in rows A through C will be in open air seating, all rows will have unobstructed views of the track. Clubhouse Purple guests will be provided with an onsite trip director and VIP fast access passes which allow for a faster more secure access into Churchill Downs® at gates 1, 10 and 17.
