Horse Racing Tickets Information

When it comes to horse racing no term grabs the attention of spectators like that of the Triple Crown. With the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Belmont Stakes paving the way for this historic feat, the three races are some of the biggest tickets in the sporting world.

Currently sitting at an average ticket price of $211, the 2015 Kentucky Derby has already created a buzz as fans look to witness the next piece of history in horse racing. As the event draws nearer the average ticket price is likely to increase with ticket demand as just a month before the 2014 Derby ticket averages jumped significantly to $866. The second leg of the Triple Crown, the Preakness Stakes, has traditionally held a fairly stable average ticket price over time. While last year’s average ticket price of $135 was a three-year low for the race it was much closer to the 2012 average of $140.

The third and final leg of the Triple Crown, the Belmont Stakes, is usually the most affected in regards to average ticket prices by the outcomes of the “Race for the Roses” and “The Run for the Black-Eyed Susans”. Prior to last year’s run by California Chrome to win the first two legs of the Triple Crown Belmont Stakes average ticket price was $275. After California Chrome’s win in the Preakness Stakes the average ticket price of the Belmont Stakes rose by nearly 50% to an average of $408. This price was more than 350% higher than the $87 average of the 2012 Belmont Stakes when there was no possibility of a Triple Crown winner.
