“We are extremely pleased with the incredibly high demand for tickets to the 2015 Breeders’ Cup World Championships at Keeneland. Since we opened up public sales at 12 p.m. ET today we have sold approximately 25,000 tickets through 5,500 unique transactions. Most of the reserved seating available for both October 30 and 31 sold out within hours. However, there remains some highly desirable inventory including General Admission for both days, and limited availability in the trackside Bourbon Lounge located at the top of the stretch featuring expansive views of the action. We encourage fans to visit Breederscup.com or call 1-877-TIX-4CUP (call center hours are M-F, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. ET). We also have great seats in both the Entertainment Center and Keene Barn. We greatly appreciate fans being patient with our ticketing system while we processed the unprecedented volume of inquiries during the first hour of ticket sales and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.
“Total ticketing for the 2015 Breeders’ Cup is projected at 77,000 for the two days (tickets for The Hill & The Meadow are per car, and allow access of all occupants of the car, so the estimated attendance is 42,000-45,000 each day). After today’s public sales, we have sold 60,000 of those tickets, and have approximately 17,000 available.”
