Kentucky Derby scheduled for May 7
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (March 17, 2016) — To ensure legitimacy of Kentucky Derby tickets, Churchill Downs Racetrack recently launched the Kentucky Derby Ticket Exchange by Ticketmaster. As the only authorized resale platform for the event, the Kentucky Derby Ticket Exchange guarantees that fans will receive legitimate, Ticketmaster Verified tickets. Kentucky Derby officials encourage fans seeking to buy or resell tickets to only use the Kentucky Derby Ticket Exchange.
Ticketholders who are unable to attend the Kentucky Oaks or Kentucky Derby will be able to resell their tickets at face value or above using various pricing options and be assured that they meet all state and local regulations on ticket resales.
Because the Kentucky Derby Ticket Exchange is completely integrated with the Derby’s Ticketmaster software and uses barcode verification to ensure the authenticity of every ticket, ticket buyers can be confident that their tickets are legitimate.
“Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks sell out quickly, so it is of the utmost importance that our fans have access to a trustworthy and convenient place to buy and sell Derby tickets,” said Sarah Contardo, vice president of Ticketing, CDRT. “We selected Ticketmaster to power the Kentucky Derby Ticket Exchange because it provides our customers one easy-to-use platform to purchase both primary and resale tickets while still allowing us to protect our fans and guarantee the legitimacy of their tickets.”
The Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks are May 6-7.
