How to Get Starting Line Tickets at Churchill Downs

Posted by Julie Skaff on Mon, Jan 13, 2020

As the Official Experience Package Provider to Churchill Downs® for the Kentucky Derby®, Derby Experiences has access to some of the very best tickets at the track that you cannot get anywhere else.

There are many ways to experience the Kentucky Derby, but to do it right, you should attend with a Derby Experiences Ticket Package. Not only do we provide access to private hospitality venues and exclusive parties and tours, we also have unmatched seating options all over the track. We can get you tickets to some of the most sought-after seating locations to watch the big race.


One of the most action-filled moments of “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports” happens right away - when the horses explode out of the starting gate. Guests are also in prime position as horses round the last turn and make their final moves to attempt to cross the finish line in first.

Derby Experiences’ Red, Blue, and Orange Grandstand Ticket Packages have some of the best views of these legendary moments in the Kentucky Derby race.
