General Admission

General admission tickets allow access to first floor seating (including first floor clubhouse and first floor grandstand area), as well as the Paddock area, Paddock Plaza, second level ITW, and Food Court. Seating is first come, first served. General admission tickets start at $3.00 per adult, and $1 per Senior (age 60+, I.D. required). Children 12 years and younger are complimentary (this does not apply on Kentucky Derby & Oaks Days).

General admission can be purchased at any admission gate or online at the link below. When you buy your General Admission ticket in advance online, you can avoid the lines and print your ticket from home, or view the ticket on your mobile device for fast entry into the gates.

Please note that the Senior Discount is not available for all live race days. On Family Adventure Days, children under 2 years of age are free; 2-12 years of age require a child's ticket for entry.
