3 Reasons Why You Need Orange Grandstand Kentucky Derby Packages

Posted by Jaclyn Harris on Fri, Oct 24, 2014 @ 10:58 AM

There is nothing that compares to watching the Kentucky Derby LIVE.

Just imagine: walking into Churchill Downs on Derby day, seeing the massive amounts of people around you clad in beautiful dresses, fashionable suits and outrageous hats, all prepared to celebrate the first leg of the Triple Crown Series.

There's nothing quite like the emotion you feel hearing "My Old Kentucky Home" played while everyone in the stands sings along, or the excitement that builds in your chest as you hear the jockeys urging their mounts foward as they race down the final stretch to the finish line. 

With that being said, if you were given the opportunity to attend the 2015 Kentucky Derby, not just as a fan, but a VIP, wouldn't you take that opportunity? Wouldn't you really want to experience the 141st Kentucky Derby?

Well, with Derby Experiences Official Orange Grandstand Ticket Packages, you can get that VIP experience!

Check out these three reasons why you need Orange Grandstand Kentucky Derby Packages in your future:

1. Tickets to an Unparalleled Seating Location

With an Official Ticket Package, you'll receive tickets to both the 141st running of the Kentucky Oaks and the Kentucky Derby. And with Orange Grandstand access, your seats will be in the third floor of the Grandstand. You'll have the option of choosing seats that are covered or uncovered (avoiding the always possible rainshower!), and the seats are fold back chairs allowing you to have the extra support of a seatback (no bleachers for you!).

From the Orange Grandstand seating area, you're located right between the 1/8 and 3/16 poles, and only a short distance from the finish line. This means you'll have a fantastic view of the horses loading into the starting gate, the rounding of the first bend, the last turn and the final stretch!

You'll have an elevated view being located on the third floor, you'll be able to see portions of the backstretch as well. And when the horses are out of view, the world's largest HD video screen is located directly in front of you!

Packages also include a VIP Fast Access Pass so you'll have a quicker, more secure entrance to the track via Gate 10!

2. Access to an Exclusive In-Track Hosptiality Venue

With Orange Grandstand Official Ticket Packages, you'll have access to the exclusive Affirmed Lounge VIP Hospitality Venue. Affirmed Lounge is located within the Kentucky Derby Museum which can be found right outside the entrance to the Grandstand at Gate 1. 

This hospitality area offers an air-conditioned escape from the Louisville weather and the incredibly crowded grounds of Churchill Downs. Within, you'll be invited to enjoy complimentary beer, wine and soft drink options, an all-you-can-eat lunch buffet, live wagering tellers, and live music (American Idol's Elise Testone performed last year!).

Not to mention, celebrity jockeys (last year Pat Day and Chris McCarron visited) and A-list Hollywood stars will be making appearances to meet YOU and sign autographs.

Simulcast TV coverage can also be found inside, so even though you stepped away from your seat, you won't miss a minute of the action.

3. Easy Payment Terms

Something that sets Derby Experiences apart is the opportunity to enroll in easy payment terms! This means that instead of paying for your entire package up front, you can space your payments out over a period of time making your dream Kentucky Derby experience affordable!

And since Orange Grandstand Ticket Packages allow you to opt to include luxurious accommodations in Louisville and provided for transportation in your package, you can pay off all aspects of your trip to the Kentucky Derby overtime. 

Derby Experiences can offer this opportunity due to our direct relationship with Churchill Downs and you won't find easy payment terms anywhere else.
