Sections 116 to 117 are some of the most sought after seating options at Churchill Downs on Kentucky Derby and Oaks days! These seats are right near the finish line with a great view of the tote board, and give you fast access to the Paddock area! These are the seats you need if you want to feel the rush of excitement as the horses blow through the finish line!
Seats in these sections are known as ‘Box Seating’, as each box is set up to accommodate six ticket holders. This section is located on the first floor and the seats are folding style with backs. The ticket holder gains access to all the amenities of the 1st floor clubhouse, such as the paddock area to view the horses prior to each race, and easy access to betting windows, concessions, and restrooms. Sections 116 to 117 offer a fantastic look at the horses as they cross the finish line! Box seats offer a fantastic social atmosphere, and can be a great spot to take pictures from. The variation in pricing between the sections is in relation of their proximity to the finish line.
Price is PER PERSON – DOUBLE OCCUPANCY ONLY
