Horse racing in Kentucky is rich in history, dating back to 1789 when the first race course was laid out in Lexington. Almost 100 years later, in 1875, Churchill Downs officially opened and began its tradition as “Home of the Kentucky Derby.”
Experience the thrill and colorful spectacle of Thoroughbred racing with your party of ten as the nation’s finest horses compete at Churchill Downs. Along with watching the spectacular action on the track, you can stroll through the historic grounds of the world’s most legendary racetrack and enjoy the ambiance of one of the most hallowed shrines in American Sport.
VIP Winner’s Circle Suite – Sit where the owners of the Kentucky Derby horses sit! Your Winner’s Circle suite offers open-air, covered lounge seating with unmatched proximity to the racetrack and Winner’s Circle. Treat your party to front row, thunderous horse racing action. Enjoy a private Winner’s Circle suite for you and your guests. Each luxury suite is appointed with a personal suite attendance, complimentary race day programs, and conveniently located nearby tellers (food and beverage costs not included).
Trophy Presentation & Race Named in Your Honor – Step into the Trackside Winner’s Circle at Churchill Downs! A race will be named in your honor and your personalized race name will be listed in the program. You and your guest will be escorted into the Paddock for the saddling prior to your race. After viewing the selected race from trackside, you will step into the Trackside Winner’s Circle and present a trophy engraved with your name to the winning owner, jockey or trainer. You will also receive an 8 x 10 color photograph taken in the Winner’s Circle to take home as a memento.
