I'm buying Grandstand Kentucky Derby tickets this year so I can actually see the race. Last year (our first) we bought the cheapest seats possible and could not see the track. It was still the best experience we had all year. Just being there was well worth the price of admission.

The party atmosphere of the Derby is that which Legends are made. The energy, the people the band and of course the race itself is fantastic. It my favorite way to kick off the summer. Glad to see you still had some cheaper seats available.

Churchill Downs and Louisville do it right every year. They have it down to a science and out of the 10 times I bought Derby tickets, only once did I have a hard time seeing the track. A+ Customer Service.

The Kentucky Derby Infield Club tickets were the best seats for the money we found. They were connected to an area with enclosed seating, free buffet, separate restrooms, ATM, and several bars. Can't wait for next year.

Thanks for the great K Derby tickets. Not only was the race good but the parade is a lot of fun with a really long line of floats, dancers, bands, mini cars and all sorts of good stuff. What an adventure!

The price of the Kentucky Derby tickets didn't bother me as much as the cost of my wife's custom hat. ouch. Anyway I look forward to buying from ACheapSeat.com again next year. Great!!

They don't call it the Kentucky Derby Festival for nothing. There is so much to do other than having seats to Churchhill Downs. Derby Tickets to me are low priority with all the other atractions, but while in Rome they say.

We went to Louisville for the Derby Festival and decided 2 days into the trip that it would not be complete unless we went to Churchhill Downs for the race. We saved $200 with ACheapSeat.com even with priority overnight shipping compared to local folks trying to sell their Derby tickets for a large profit. Thanks Guys we will use you again.

What a great time. We had no idea how much fun one city could provide, everyday there was something different to do. I will continue to use your site for the best tickets available.
Kentucky Derby Information
Get out your big hats and mint juleps, the Kentucky Derby 2013 is on its way. This year's run will be the 139th Run for the Roses. Once again, Louisville, Kentucky will be full of beautiful people and beautiful horses to honor this wonderful American tradition. The run at Churchill Downs will be on May 4 at 1:00 pm EST.
Getting your tickets for the Kentucky Derby will also allow you to be in Louisville for Kentucky Oaks, two days of events and entertainment that will take place May 3 and 4.
Kentucky Derby tickets are horse racing's most coveted passes. Nothing has the class, extravagance or celebrity attendance as the Derby.
This first leg of the Triple Crown is the opportunity to a future legend to run a perfect race then head on to the Preakness Stakes and the Belmont Stakes.
The most surprising fact that you might not know about Kentucky Derby tickets: prices start at less than $60 for the 2013 Kentucky Derby. Of course, if price is no object or you want the memory of a lifetime, a Jockey Club table is $25,000, but there is no reason that any true horse racing fan can't afford to go the Kentucky Derby in person at least once.
Between 1875 and 1902, African-American jockeys won 15 of the 28 runnings of the Kentucky Derby. On May 3, 1952, the first national television coverage of the Kentucky Derby took place. The 1904 Kentucky Derby was won by Elwood, the first Derby starter and winner to be owned by a woman, Laska Durnell. The 2004 Kentucky Derby marked the first time that jockeys were allowed to wear corporate advertising logos on their clothing. The Kentucky Derby is a Grade I stakes race for three-year-old thoroughbred horses, staged annually in Louisville, Kentucky on the first Saturday in May. The Kentucky Derby was first run at 1.5 miles, the same distance as the Epsom Derby and the Grand Prix de Paris, but in 1896 the distance was changed to 1.25 miles. The Mint Julep is the traditional beverage of the Kentucky Derby. The fastest time ever run in the Kentucky Derby, at its present distance, is 1 minute 59 2/5 seconds, by Secretariat in 1973.
