Seat Advisor Brings TicketResell to Breeders' Cup World Championships; Breeders' Cup Ticketholders May Resell Event Tickets They Can No Longer Use
LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 29, 2015) — The Breeders’ Cup today announced the return of TicketResell by SeatAdvisor, a ticketing feature that provides ticketholders more flexibility and security when selling and purchasing tickets for the Breeders’ Cup World Championships. TicketResell is an online tool that allows patrons to resell tickets they can no longer use back to the Breeders’ Cup primary ticket inventory. The Breeders’ Cup, Thoroughbred racing’s premier international event, will be held at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington on Friday, October 30 and Saturday, October 31.
TicketResell was developed by SeatAdvisor, Inc., a global ticketing software company and the official box office software provider of the Breeders’ Cup World Championships since 2008. This is the third consecutive year that the TicketResell program has been made available to Breeders’ Cup patrons. With TicketResell, if patrons are no longer able to attend the event, they are now able to resell event tickets directly through their online account held with the Breeders’ Cup. A desired resell price is set by the seller, and tickets are then added to the accessible inventory and made available for buyers.
All transactions are 100% secured and guaranteed by Breeders’ Cup, unlike other secondary market resellers. Upon being sold, patrons are able to recoup the original cost of the tickets minus a minimal servicing fee.
“We understand that even after purchasing tickets some of our guests may not be able to attend, and other patrons may wish to purchase tickets for a section that is currently sold out,” said Breeders’ Cup President and CEO Craig Fravel. “TicketResell provides fans with a reasonable market for tickets in a secure location, which removes the risk of counterfeiting.”
“TicketResell was engineered to equip our clients with the ability to securely assist patrons that can no longer use their tickets to an event. We are thrilled by the success Breeders’ Cup has demonstrated using the feature over the past several years, as it reflects our mission to aide venues of all kinds in providing superior customer service to ticket buyers.” Brent Miller, CEO, SeatAdvisor, Inc.
In addition to being more convenient and safe for patrons, the TicketResell technology helps the Breeders’ Cup better manage ticket inventory. The event will also be more accessible as tickets that may go unused can be resold.
Fans interested selling their Breeders’ Cup tickets or purchasing resold inventory through TicketResell may call 859-514-9428, M-F, 9-5 p.m. ET; email email@example.com or on the web at www.breederscup.com/tickets
