-T. Edwards
Smooth operation. Let me know what packages you'll be offering for Super Bowl XLIV in Tampa.
I wanted to thank you and your staff for enabling me to give Dan the "Bucket List Moment" of Sunday at the Masters. His 50th Birthday gift is one he will remember for the rest of his life. All of the arrangements were wonderful and his trip went smoothly. Thanks again for such a memorable experience for him.
-A.M. Customer

This itinerary is great! My clients are really thrilled to be going to the Rose Bowl. Thanks so much again for all your help and hard work.
-G. Strand
I received a phone call yesterday from one of the two District Managers. He said he has been on a lot of these trips, to a lot of great places (i.e. Pebble Beach) and this by far was the best trip he and his wife have ever been on. He said they were blown away by the restaurants, the gifts, the planning that went into everything.

I want to send a big Thank You!! for the accommodations you provided for our Masters contest. This was a first class event all around and truly a “Bucket List” experience for all who attended. Thanks for being a great partner.
Our clients loved the Derby Trip. I just received an email from advising that the hotel was fine, staff nice and transfers went perfectly. The Friday tour excellent, the Derby lunch/party all exactly what we wanted to hear. So, thanks to you for operating a wonderful special event weekend.

-Wendi Roberts
As you guys know, we have been fortunate to have spent lots of time at race tracks and often under the best of circumstances. Esoteric provided us with the best GP experience we have had...can't remember when I've had more fun, laughed so much or spent time with a group more conducive to fun...We'll be ready for another game anytime.
Thanks for a wonderful job creating such a memorable experience for us. You are a pro and I really appreciate it.
Thank you very much for making this possible. My wife and I really appreciate it. We had a great time in Indy!
-Tom L. 2010 Final Four Customer
It truly was a fabulous time and incredibly well organized. I can't imagine it's an easy affair looking after all those people in crowds exceeding 150,000, but they did it! ...They somehow managed to get the bus in a random parking lot outside gate 3, so the minute we were all on board, they had the mounted police hold back the infield crowd to let us through, and we were on highways in nano seconds.
Your team is top-notch and excellent in dealing with people. I just can't say enough about your attention to detail and going that extra mile...I've gotten dozens of emails from people who attended who have expressed this was the best weekend trip for a Reynolds event they've ever been on...I hope we get to work together again.
Scott and I just want to thank you for a fabulous trip! It was such a treat to go to NYC for the past two years. Everything that was planned was absolutely amazing! Thanks for all of your warm hospitality and efforts in all you did for us all!

There is no doubt that sporting events like the Super Bowl and World Series can boast rich and colorful histories, but neither can match the tradition and prestige of the Kentucky Derby, which will be renewed for the 143rd time at Churchill Downs in Louisville on May 6, 2017. As one of the oldest continuously-held sporting events in the world, the “Run for the Roses” was first contested back in 1875. Aristides was the winner that day in front of a crowd of approximately 10,000 Kentucky Derby ticket holders. The 2015 Kentucky Derby set a record for the event with a crowd of 170,513. To witness “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports” live and in person, Esoteric Sports has the ideal Kentucky Derby travel package for you.

Numerous champions have won the Kentucky Derby, but only one stands out above all others – Secretariat. “Big Red” dominated the 1973 Kentucky Derby, and he still owns the fastest time ever in the event. Secretariat went on to sweep the Triple Crown that year, and went down in history as perhaps the greatest racehorse ever. The 1970s also featured Seattle Slew and the great rivalry between Alydar and Affirmed. In the last decade, we’ve been treated to remarkable rags-to-riches stories like Funny Cide and Smarty Jones, and then in 2006 Barbaro caught the attention of the nation with his memorable Kentucky Derby win and even more memorable fight for life after being injured in the Preakness Stakes. Esoteric Sports’ unique Kentucky Derby travel package gives you the chance to see the next champion.

While the race might be over in about 120 seconds, a Kentucky Derby tour offers a full array of activities that takes over the entire city of Louisville. And there is no better way to experience the pageantry and parties than with one of the 2017 Kentucky Derby travel packages from Esoteric Sports. It’s never easy to get your hands on premium Kentucky Derby tickets or Louisville hotel accommodations during the first week in May, but with Esoteric Sports you can get both. While we can’t guarantee you’ll pick a winner at the betting windows, we can guarantee a Kentucky Derby travel experience that you won’t soon forget.
