Imagine THIS is Your Kentucky Derby Experience

2014 Kentucky Derby Clubhouse Pink Seating AreaYou're at Churchill Downs® for the 141st Kentucky Derby®. You've spent the day exploring the track, placing friendly wagers, drinking Mint Juleps, and eating your fair share of delectable Kentucky dishes. It's been one of the best days of your life!

BUT, it's not over just yet. You head to your seat located right after the finish line and at the bend of the first turn, and you're right on the rail waiting for the Derby to be run!

"My Old Kentucky Home" begins to play over the speakers and spectators dressed in suits, dresses and exotic hats all around you chime in, singing the lyrics. As the song comes to a close followed by cheers, the field of Kentucky Derby contenders are led onto the track and the starting gate is staged. 

After warming up for a few minutes, the jockeys begin to circle their mounts as they are one by one loaded into the starting gate. As the last gate closes, silence fills Churchill Downs and then the bell rings! 

The field breaks from the starting gate and the crowd uproars as the announcer shouts, "And they're off in the 141st running of the Kentucky Derby!" It's surreal as the horses fight for the rail right in front of you as they're heading into the first bend. The shouts of the fans fill your ears, but all you can concentrate on is the steady breathing of the horses, the pounding of their hooves hitting the dirt, and the shouting of the jockeys urging their mounts forward into the backstretch.

They're suddenly out of sight, but you turn your attention to the world's largest HD video board located right in front of you to see who's in the lead. They're only on the backstretch for what seems like a moment in time before you hear the Grandstand erupt! The horses have rounded the final bend! 


They're racing for the finish line now and you're about to see history made right in front of you!

The field begins to separate as the leaders begin to break away from the pack. The crowd is going wild, as are you - they're only a few furlongs away now! 

When it happens, it's almost surreal! The colts thunder past the finish line right in front of your eyes as the announcer names the 2015 Kentucky Derby winner! The Kentucky Derby champion and the field continue to run by you into the turn for a second time as the jockeys begin to slow them down.

2014 Kentucky Derby Clubhouse Pink SeatingYou're on cloud nine coming off of the adrenaline rush. Hey, it's not called "The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports" for no reason! Your 2015 Kentucky Derby experience may be complete, but you'll hold on to that feeling and those memories for a lifetime!

If this is the type of 141st Kentucky Derby experience you're looking for, then you're seeking Black Clubhouse Official Ticket Packages provided by Derby Experiences.

Learn More About Black Clubhouse Packages

With Black Clubhouse Official Ticket Packages, you'll be able to experience the 2015 Kentucky Derby with the vantage point described above from Section 113, located right at the rail. This section offers covered or uncovered seating with fold back chairs (back support's a necessity, right?).

Black Clubhouse Derby Experiences

Not only does this package grant you access to the Kentucky Derby race day, but you'll also receive a ticket to the Kentucky Oaks® day as well. For both days, you'll be invited to enjoy an in-track hospitality venue located directly to the right of your seating location (if you're looking at the track). 

Within Citation Lounge, your hospitality venue, you'll have access to a cash bar, a one-time lunch buffet, snacks available for purchase, self-service wagering stations, simulcast TV coverage of the track activities, and the opportunity to meet celebrity jockeys like Pat Day! Citation Lounge is also an indoor hospitality venue so if, heaven forbid, it started raining on race day and you didn't have covered seating, you'd have an escape from the Kentucky elements.

Additionally, you'll receive a VIP Fast Access Pass granting you a quicker, more secure entrance to Churchill through Gate 10, and you will have on-site trip directors available to assist you in any way.

Black Clubhouse Packages also offer the capability to include luxurious hotel accommodations in Louisville, and transportation to and from the track each day in your package. This eliminates any additional planning aspects for you and your group.

And since Derby Experiences is the direct partner of Churchill Downs, we're capable of handling groups of any size, large or small.
