The Breeders’ Cup has announced that tickets for the 2020 Breeders’ Cup World Championship will go on sale to the public on March 9 at 9 a.m. ET. The event will return to Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, Ky., on Friday, Nov. 6 and Saturday, Nov. 7.

The 2020 Breeders’ Cup World Championships marks the second time that the event will be held at Keeneland following its inaugural running at the venue in 2015, which was widely praised as one of the best in the event’s history. On the heels of the successful 2015 debut, anticipation and demand for tickets to the 2020 event are expected to be high and tickets are likely to sell out quickly.

Fans are encouraged to visit now to review available seating options.

As with all major events that have strong demand for tickets, longer than normal wait and queue times are anticipated during the first few hours on the sale date. It is strongly recommended that fans utilize the online purchasing system via the Breeders' Cup website to purchase tickets. Fans will be placed into a queue in order received and will be allotted time to make their purchase.

A highlight of the global Thoroughbred horse racing calendar, the Breeders’ Cup will bring an exciting combination of premier horse racing, food and beverage, fashion and entertainment to Keeneland in 2020. To further elevate the experience for all fans and participants, Breeders’ Cup and Keeneland will invest over $10.5 million in the coming months to expand luxury seating areas and hospitality offerings, including: 

-- The Silks Lawn Chalet, a 50,000-square-foot, glassed-in and climate-controlled chalet that offers incredible views of the racetrack along with reserved seating, dedicated mutuel tellers and private buffet and restrooms.

-- The Saddling Paddock Chalet that offers premium views of the Championship contenders as they circle the saddling paddock before each race.

-- The Equestrian Room, Phoenix Room, Keene Barn and Entertainment Center, Sales Pavilion, Loge Box seats, Grandstand Reserved seating and General Admission, which includes a tailgating area at The Hill.

Further, in accordance with Breeders’ Cup’s longstanding commitment to deliver a curated and intimate fan experience, event attendance will again be capped at 45,000 to ensure an enhanced on-track experience for all attendees.

Available single-day ticket prices range from $40 to $440 on Friday, and $60 to $590 on Saturday. Two-day packages available for purchase range from $325 to $1,780. All tickets will be sold in advance of the event. No tickets will be sold on event days at the racetrack.

Based on the successful 2015 transportation plan, the Breeders’ Cup will again offer a Park-and-Ride program from three local destinations to Keeneland on event days. Parking on-site at Keeneland will be extremely limited and only available to those with official pre-paid parking credentials. All others will be turned away at the gates and directed to a Park-and-Ride facility. For more information fans can visit the Plan Your Visit section of the Breeders’ Cup website.

The 37th running of the Breeders’ Cup World Championships will be televised live by NBC Sports Group.
