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 Baltimore, and
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

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
