2013 Kentucky Derby Logo
Dawn at the Downs,” the popular Louisville tradition that gives visitors an opportunity to enjoy breakfast in Millionaires Row while watching Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks contenders during morning workouts, returns to Churchill Downs on Tuesday, April 30 through Thursday, May 2.
 
Award-winning horse racing columnist Gary West will describe the on-track activity by the Oaks and Derby contenders from Millionaires Row 4 and discuss the contenders’ past performances and provide invaluable insight to the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks races. Morning workouts also will be shown on television monitors and the commentary will be heard throughout the facility.
 
Reserved seats in Millionaires Row 4 & 6 and the Matt Winn Dining Room, which include breakfast, are $35 for adults and $22 for children age 4-12 (children age 3 and under are admitted free). The dining spaces afford the best views at the track with a four-tier balcony that overlooks the legendary Churchill Downs homestretch and finish line.
 
The Dawn at the Downs breakfast buffet will be served from 7-8:45 a.m. and will include scrambled eggs; hickory smoked bacon; breakfast sausage; Kentucky country ham and grits; skillet breakfast potato casserole; buttermilk biscuits and gravy; seasonal fruit; assorted breakfast breads; and coffee, tea, juice and milk.
 
Reserved tickets are available by visiting Churchill Downs’ official online box office at www.KentuckyDerby.com/Tickets or by calling (502) 636-4400.
 
Those looking for a more casual Dawn at the Downs experience are invited to view the morning workouts from the Trackside Rail and Sections 116-117 free of charge. Breakfast items will be available for purchase at the Paddock Grill.
 
Parking lots for Dawn at the Downs will open at 6:30 a.m. with Gates 10 and 17 open for admission at 6:45 a.m. Morning workouts at Churchill Downs are conducted between 6-10 a.m. with an 8 a.m. renovation break, but there is an 8:30-8:45 a.m. window exclusive to Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks horses.
