Churchill Downs
May 6, 2017

The Kentucky Derby is the first and, to many, most important leg of the Triple Crown. Known as “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports,” the Derby is the race to end all races; hall of fame thoroughbreds like Secretariat, Seattle Slew, and American Pharaoh all secured their places in history on the one and one quarter mile track.

Located in the heart of Louisville, Churchill Downs is the platonic ideal of a racetrack: the perfect mix of rich, incomparable history and modern amenities. One must see its twin spires and verdant, manicured infield (with a Mint Julep in hand) to fully understand it.

As a Grade I Stakes race, and part of the American Triple Crown, the Kentucky Derby is an extremely hot ticket. However, because of our extensive network of partnerships, we offer any combination of tickets, Derby after parties, and packages that suit your needs. We further offer a 200% guarantee that we will fulfill all ticket requests. Cross the Kentucky Derby off your bucket list in style; shop with Fan Hospitality.

There may be other parties going on in Louisville the night before the derby, but Fillies and Stallions is the only one that matters.

Fillies and Stallions is, famously, an invite only event- however we’ve got the hookup. Whether you are looking for GA, VIP, or Table service, Fan Hospitality has you covered.
