Additional Details

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 146th time at Churchill Downs in Louisville on May 2, 2020. 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 2020 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.
