In the mainstream sporting world, we’re talking NBA playoffs, NFL playoffs and BCS title game But in the racing world, none of that matters. In the racing world, we’re already talking Kentucky Derby, even though it’s still January and Kentucky Derby is still four months away. We are already preparing for our Kentucky Derby betting this early as well as Kentucky Derby parties which involves a lot of Mint julep. Even though at this point we have absolutely no idea who’s going to run in America’s most famous race, much less who’s going to win it, where still already in the hype and is looking forward to it.


And so, when the calendar reads January 1, it starts. Actually, it usually starts—“it” being Derby fever—in November, right after the Breeders’ Cup, but it really, really starts on January 1, and that’s because all Thoroughbred race horses, no matter on what date they are actually born, officially turn a year older on January 1. All registered Thoroughbreds born in 2013 celebrated their third birthday a couple of weeks ago, and that means that they’re now eligible for the Kentucky Derby, which, like all Derbies, is restricted to 3-year-old horses.


And literally, on the first day that horses are Derby-eligible, the first Derby is held: this year, the Gulfstream Park Derby at Gulfstream Park, just south of Ft. Lauderdale.


And so, it begins.

Derby prep season.


From now until May 5th, racetracks across the country will stage a series of races restricted to 3-year-olds; the races will be a mile or longer, to help horses get ready to run the 1 ¼ miles distance of the Kentucky Derby, a racing distance that they won’t run until that day.


Many of those races will be graded stakes races: they’re how horses make the starting gate. The Kentucky Derby is limited to 20 starters (more than twice the number of horses in most races in this country), and entry is based on graded stakes earnings. In order to qualify for the race, horses have to be in the top 20 of lifetime graded stakes earners; horses that won graded stakes race at 2 have a jump on those that don’t start running in graded races until they’re 3. They don’t have to win those races; most races pay purse money to horses that finish fifth or better, though the better you finish, the more money you earn.


Get your Kentucky Derby betting ready as early as possible because the Greatest two minutes of sports is coming your way!

We are going to the Kentucky Derby in hopes the general admission office is selling tickets that morning. I have looked on line and belong to the twin spires club, but really, over a thousand bucks. We just want to go and enjoy ourselves. My husband is retired from the Army, we are also going to visit Ft. Knox where he completed his basic training about 30 yrs. ago.
Great answer about the tickets thanks.
Where do I find what I can take in, and if I can are camp chairs okay?

They sell general admission tickets all day on Derby day. They’re $ 40. You don’t get a seat, but you’re there. People line up outside Churchill waiting for it to open on Saturday morning in hopes of finding a good place to stand. Churchill will not “sell out” of general admission tickets, but if you get there later in the day it will be rough finding a place to stand

EBAY!!! its a wonderful thing

Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) December 12, 2014

The tour is already a commercial success for the band, and shows have been added to different regions due to such high demand. The group will visit Europe, North America and Australasia, and fans are so eager to see their favorite pop rock band in person that they cannot buy tickets fast enough. Many U.S. cities are scheduled for a visit, and locations include Sunrise, Florida; Nashville, Tennessee; Louisville, Kentucky; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Wantagh, New York; Tinley Park, Illinois; Kansas City, Missouri; Dallas, Texas; Salt Lake City, Utah; and Los Angeles, California. Canadian fans have four concerts they can attend in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver.

The five young men who comprise the group auditioned separately for The X Factor in 2014 and ended up winning third place as a group when they were put together to compete in that category. The gentlemen have experienced much success since that eventful time. They have released two albums, the latest of which has come out as recently as last month. The upcoming tour will promote the second album, “Take Me Home,” and will give fans the chance to hear some of the material in a live performance.

To be able to purchase cheap One Direction tickets is the dream of every young fan, and cheaper prices are available for seats to all performances. The band will tour Europe beginning on February 23 and ending on May 26. North American concerts begin on June 8 and 9 in Mexico City and continue until August 10. The talented performers then travel to Australasia where they will perform concerts from September 23 until the 30th of October. The year 2014 is definitely going to be a busy one for One Direction, and fans who do not have tickets in hand can still get good seats for an upcoming event.

Next year’s tour will be the group’s second. Their first tour took place in 2014 and promoted the band’s debut album “Up All Night.” One Direction sold more than 15 million copies of their albums, videos and singles around the world, and numerous awards have also come their way, with 67 nominations and 34 wins. They have acquired such a large following of fans that it is not surprising how quickly tickets continue to sell at many locations.
