This week we are focusing on the last but definitely not least, Clubhouse Mint package:

Clubhouse Mint Official Ticket Package

Clubhouse Mint ticket holders will be seated on the third floor of the clubhouse in sections 320 and 321. The best part about sitting on the third floor is it allows for guests to have an overhead view of the racetrack. These sections are located right in the middle between the start and finish lines, giving guests a perfect view of all the action. All rows are covered, so rain or shine you will stay dry, comfortable, and have unobstructed views. Clubhouse Mint guests will be provided with an onsite trip director and VIP fast access passes, which allow for a faster more secure access into Churchill Downs® at gates 1, 10 and 17. By choosing Clubhouse Mint you will also have access to our premium hospitality venue, Aristides Lounge.

This in-track, climate-controlled venue is complete with all day gourmet buffets and a premium open bar.
