Reserved grandstand seats in section 123 are located on the first floor and provide bleacher style seating. Tickets in the grandstand are ideal for the budget conscious racing fans. The difference in pricing between the sections reflects their proximity to the finish line. Section 123 offers a nice view of the starting gate, as well as a good look at the stretch. It’s a great place to take in the atmosphere, snap a few pictures, and feel the excitement of a day at Churchill Downs.
