It can be guessed that going to the Derby would cost a lot, considering its popularity. However, you can attend the Derby for as low as $80 because this is the basic cost of entering Churchill Downs on the day of the event.

However, the ticket can also cost over $25,000! The difference between $80 and $25,000 is all due to the comfort level and facilities available under the ticket.

In $80, all you get is to enter the Churchill Downs. You won’t get a seat and you might not even be able to see any of the horses. However, numerous betting stations and televisions will still be accessible.

Getting a seat costs considerably more. There are two types of seats, grandstand, and clubhouse. The grandstand seats are relatively cheaper and range from $350 to about $1000.

The clubhouse seats, on the other hand, can cost about thousands of dollars. You can also enter the clubhouse box without buying a seat for about $800. This box has better facilities like less crowded bathrooms and a better view.

If you’re a rich Kentucky Derby fan, you can purchase their Personal Seat License.

Under this License, you will be able to get a seat of your choice in the best areas, for up to three years. You first purchase the License, then pay an annual fee plus the cost of the seat, which can range from $3,000 to $30,000 depending on what level the seat is on and its specific location.

The price of the seats increases every year, so try your best to grab your ticket as soon as possible!
