When do I need to buy tickets for the Triple Crown?

Triple Crown Tickets

It's the equine equivalent of World Series tickets and Super Bowl tickets. For those who love "Dreamer" and "Seabiscuit," event tickets to the Preakness Stakes, Kentucky Derby and Belmont Stakes are premium sporting event tickets. How far in advance do you buy event tickets before your odds become twenty to one?

Here's the equestrian event calendar for 2006:

  • May 4-6 -- Kentucky Derby
  • May 20 -- Preakness Stakes
  • June 10 -- Belmont Stakes

Be warned, though: If you're buying Kentucky Derby tickets, you have to apply a year in advance to have a chance at one of the 48,500 seats, and it's already too late for 2006. You can always go through an online ticket broker (though some grumble that eBay is cheaper) so you don't run afoul of the strict Kentucky anti-scalping laws.

If you back the right horse and successfully purchase tickets for the Derby, insiders like sections 10, 11 and 12, the infield bleachers. Also, be sure to stay a week in Kentucky so you can catch the famed parties, including the Kentucky Derby Breakfast and Eve Party. Don't be an also-ran--order your Triple Crown tickets ASAP. We'll see you in the winner's circle!
