Noteable Horse Racing Events

When it comes to horse racing, all races pale in comparison to the three Triple Crown races, which are the Kentucky Derby in Louisville, Preakness Stakes in Baltimore, and Belmont Stakes in Queens, in that order.

When Are The Triple Crown Races?

The Kentucky Derby is the kickoff event for the Triple Crown horse races, and it takes place on the first Saturday in May. The Preakness Stakes is held on the third Saturday of every May, meaning it occurs exactly two weeks after The Derby. The Belmont Stakes is typically held on the first Saturday in June of each year.

How to Save on Horse Racing Tickets

There are a few ways you can save money on horse racing tickets. One way is to avoid paying the service fees that our major competitor tacks on at checkout, which saves you 10% when you purchase through TickPick. Another way you can save money is by using TickPick's bidding platform, which allows fans to name their own price on tickets.

TickPick is the only major ticket site that charges no service fees, hidden or otherwise. This makes us the source for horse racing tickets that are 10% cheaper than our major competitor, for the same seats.

How to Get Horse Racing Tickets for Below Face Value

On TickPick's bidding platform, fans have the opportunity to purchase Horse Racing tickets by naming their price for the seats they want. If sellers get desperate to move their tickets, fans can get Horse Racing tickets as well below the seller's listed price!

Where to Sit at a Horse Race

While attending a horse race, sitting higher up is generally viewed as the best option because the further removed you are from the track, the more clear a view you'll have of all the action in front of you, particularly while the horses are on the opposite end of the track from where you're sitting. If you're able to get seats closer to the finish line, you can expect to pay a bit more, but many fans would consider it worthwhile, given you'll have the best views of an exciting finish.

When is the best time to buy Horse Racing Tickets

In our opinion, the best time to buy horse racing tickets is generally 3-4 days prior to the race. We often see a very high number of orders come through as soon as tickets are released by the venues months in advance, but those prices can actually be at their highest in some cases if fans want to buy them as soon as they go on sale. Another factor that can help determine when you should buy tickets is potential weather issues, as many seats are uncovered and the race experience can be dampered a bit by rain. A major factor for timing when buying tickets to Triple Crown races like the Belmont Stakes is that if you wait to purchase until a horse wins the first two legs of the Crown, prices will undoubtedly go up, as fans will want to witness potential history in New York for that race. For that reason, we'd recommend buying sooner rather than later for Belmont if a Triple Crown is at stake.

Last Minute Horse Racing Tickets

Buying last minute horse racing tickets is easier and safer than it's ever been, especially when using TickPick's app. Many horse racing venues allow mobile entry, meaning you can purchase your tickets prior to the event and have them scanned right from your smartphone within minutes. Although last minute ticket purchases have been commonplace for a few years now, we do recommend trying to buy your tickets a little in advance because the number of available tickets from which you can choose may significantly decrease as the event approaches.
