The first floor grandstand seating is an all reserved bleacher or bench style seat, similar to what you might find at a football stadium for example. These seats are very economical and would most likely be good choices for budget-conscious purchases. The main difference in pricing is reflected in the proximity to the finish line. This is the most economical area in the track for reserved seats for Derby and Oaks. The starting gate for the Derby is right in front of Section 128. This is an exciting place to sit to see the start of the “Greatest Two Minutes in Sports” and the horses turning for home!
Price is PER PERSON – DOUBLE OCCUPANCY ONLY
