How to Attend the Breeders’ Cup® on a Budget

By Victoria Barnett June 04, 2015

Breeders Cup ExperiencesAttending the Breeders’ Cup doesn’t have to break the bank. In fact, it shouldn’t! You might have seen the cost of tickets and been a little concerned. But the good news is there’s a way to get access without making your bank account cry.  


Like most financially responsible people, you probably have a budget you want and need to stick to. I also know you want to go to the Breeder’s Cup. After all, that’s why you’re here. Well, I’m here to help you get there. Here are a few ways for how you can attend the Breeders’ Cup on a budget!

Bundle Your Tickets and Amenities

Tickets. Meals. Drinks. Snacks. Transportation. Parking. Hotel. Souvenirs. 

If you’re not strategic about what you purchase, you’ll really start to see the dollar signs add up. It’s a scary thought, isn’t it?

The reality is you know you are going to need the things mentioned above. The good news is you don’t have to spend all of your money to get them.

One costly mistake you can make when planning your trip to the Breeders’ Cup is to purchase everything separately. Your tickets and amenities will add up quickly and end up costing you more than necessary.

Instead, you should bundle your tickets and amenities together with a package. It’s a great money-conscious way to get everything you need and want all for one price.

With a package, you get tickets, food, drinks, souvenirs, exclusive access and much more. You can even add travel and lodging to your package for a cost-efficient price. Plus, with a hotel package, you get transportation to and from the track and hotel.

Go With More People

Breeders Cup Experiences You can cut down on travel and hotel costs by attending the Breeders’ Cup with family, friends or colleagues. Think about how much less it will cost to share a hotel room with multiple people rather than get one just for yourself. Plus, if you are driving to Lexington, you can cut down on expenses by riding together.

If you decide to attend the Breeders’ Cup with a large group of people, buying an Official Ticket Package guarantees that you and your guests will have seats together.

Choose the Right Package

Breeders Cup ExperiencesI already mentioned how much you’ll save when you bundle your tickets and amenities. So how do you decide which package to choose?

You’ll want to make a list of your wants and needs and compare them to the available packages. What must you have? What can you live without? For some people, seating takes the biggest priority. For others, it’s all about the amenities. It just depends on your personal preference.

The most budget-friendly package for the 2019 Breeders' Cup includes under cover Grandstand seats positioned right near the finish line. Talk about great seating for a great price! Plus, you’ll even get access to an indoor climate-controlled hospitality venue with a lunch buffet and premium open bar.

As you can see, you can attend the Breeders’ Cup on a budget; you just have to plan it right! The biggest way you can save is to buy Official Ticket Packages that cover what you will need for the event. Stay stress-free knowing that everything will be taken care of. Enjoy your time at the Breeders’ Cup while keeping your wallet happy!
