Breeders' Cup Challenge is BACK! The Road to Keeneland Starts Now!

  
  
  

breeders cup experiences santa anita horse racing quintevents 14 resized 600 resized 600The schedule for the 2015 Breeders' Cup Challenge series has been set and the first race will be run on May 1. Consisting of 78 races where thoroughbreds can automatically qualify to run at Keeneland in the 2015 Breeders' Cup World Championships, each of these Grade I races will be held in countries spanning the globe in order to find the best of the best.

Read on to learn about the Breeders' Cup Challenge and to view the 2015 schedule!

How the Breeders' Cup Challenge Works

Simply put, the Breeders' Cup Challenge is a series of Grade I stakes races held throughout the year that trainers and owners can enter their horses in. Winning one of these races instantaniously grants the horse entry into the Breeders' Cup championship race that pairs up with the particular Challenge series race. 

In addition to automatic entry, the Breeders' Cup Challenge winners have their entry and starting fees waived. In addition, if the horse is coming in from a state outside the host state (Kentucky), they will receive travel stipends. 

The Breeders' Cup Challenge Schedule

breeders cup experiences keeneland 2 resized 600 resized 600The "Win and You're In" series is upping the ante this year and has added eight additional Challenge series races to the schedule.

Now, the following stakes races have been added to the schedule: the Gran Premio Criadores at Palermo in Argentina, the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood in England, the Sword Dancer and Spinaway Stakes at Saratoga, the Fleur de Lis Handicap at Churchill Downs, the T. Von Zastow Stutenpreis at Baden Baden in Germany, and the Princess Rooney and Smile Sprint Handicap at Gulfstream Park.

What's New For The 2016 College Football Playoff National Championship

  
  
  

College Football National Championship White G 2The first-ever College Football Playoff was one for the history books. With only 146 days until college football season kicks-off again and with the excitement levels already rising for the 2016 season, it’s never too early to start defending the title.

When the College Football Playoff was announced last year it’s safe to say most of us were slightly confused about everything: the format, the voting/ranking process and criteria for picking teams. With a year under our belt most of us are practically pros at this now. But for those who need a slight refresher, fear not! We have just the thing!

Ranking football teams is an art, not a science. In any ranking system, perfection or consensus is not possible and the physical impact of the game on student athletes prevents elaborate playoff systems of multiple games.

Let us break it down for you. For the purposes of any four team playoff, the process will inevitably need to select the four best teams from several with a legitimate claim in the game.

2011 Cotton Bowl   LSU v Texas AThe Road to Four

The College Football Playoff Selection Committee Protocol, along with the voting process won’t be deviating from their formats from last year. The College Football Playoff Selection Committee will be looking at the following criteria to choose the four best teams in the nation at the end of the regular season:

  • Conference Championships won
  • Strength of schedule
  • Head-to-head competition (if it occurred)
  • Comparative outcomes of common opponents (without incenting margin of victory)
  • Other relevant factors (key injuries that may have affected a team’s performance during the season or likely will affect its postseason performance.)

The College Football Playoff Selection Committee will meet in person weekly beginning mid-season to produce interim rankings before selection weekend. They’ll be ranking their top 25 teams throughout the season during each of their seven meetings.

College Football National Championship Gold A 2The Voting Process

The voting process will continue using last year’s format for the 2016 season. The process will include seven rounds of ballots. The Selection Committee will first select a pool of teams to be considered, then will rank those teams.

Individual ballots will be compiled into a composite ranking. Each committee member will independently evaluate an immense amount of information (video footage and analyzing data) provided by SportSource Analytics.

College Football National Championship Gold B Package 1The Selection Committee

The Selection Committee only had one minor change with the Archie Manning’s departure from the committee and currently has 13 members:

  • Jeff Long, Chair (Vice Chancellor & Director of Athletics, University of Arkansas-Fayetteville)
  • Barry Alvarez (Director of Athletics, University of Wisconsin-Madison)
  • Lieutenant General Mike Gould (Former Superintendent of the United States Air Force Academy)
  • Pat Haden (Director of Athletics, University of Southern California)
  • Kirby Hocutt (Director of Athletics, Texas Tech University)
  • Tom Jernstedt (Former NCAA Executive Vice President)
  • Bobby Johnson, Former Head Football Coach
  • Tom Osborne (Former Head Coach & Director of Athletics, University of Nebraska-Lincoln)
  • Dan Radakovich (Director of Athletics, Clemson University)
  • Condoleezza Rice (Stanford University Professor, Former Stanford Provost & Former United States Secretary of State)
  • Mike Tranghese (Former Commissioner, Big East Conference)
  • Steve Wieberg (Former College Football Reporter, USA Today)
  • Tyrone Willingham (Former Head Coach of Three FBS Institutions)

Most members shall serve three-year terms. Until the rotation has been achieved, certain terms may be shorter or longer and members will not be eligible for re-appointment.

Why Booking Your Super Bowl 50 Experience Through the Official Source Matters

  
  
  

Super Bowl QuintEvents 4Whether you’ve booked your own event experience before or you’ve had a travel agent attempt to book you the same type of access, chances are you or said agent has made a mistake during the process.

Almost everyone faces some type of risk when booking through a secondary source. Which is where MOST people buy their tickets to all major sporting events.

How many times have you heard the horror stories of a vacations/trips gone wrong? Unfortunately, this happens more often than not.

Either the tickets purchased weren’t where you expected or you purchased tickets to a major sporting event and upon arrival, you find out they don’t have tickets to give to you, leaving you unhappy, frustrated and with an experience you’d rather forget. Not really what you’d expect to get when you’re shelling out quite a bit of money for a to-die-for experience.

IMG 3550

For those of you who’ve been lucky enough to avoid these situations thus far or those who’ve unfortunately have had to live these, we’re here to help ensure you that this sort of inconvenience never happens to you again!

The only way to avoid earning your own horror vacation story is to book directly through the source! Take a look at some of the reasons why booking OFFICIAL Ticket Packages direct from the source is the best solution for you.

Booking through the Official Source gives you peace of mind and eliminates any question about the authentication or quality of a ticket package. We provide early shipping on all your tickets weeks in advance, so you’ll spend more time getting excited about your experience rather than worrying.

F1 Mexico Grand Prix Racing 2The reconstruction project of the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez Circuit is well underway and on schedule for the 2015 Formula One Gran Premio de Mexico this November. As the championship race nears, fans are eagerly awaiting what’s to come.

Don’t fret, we have your solution! Through the next few weeks we’ll be breaking down all of the available Official Ticket Packages to help you discover the perfect package for your family and you.

The first in our package series to review are the Main Grandstand Ticket Packages. Both of these packages offer incredible, privileged viewing positions and exclusive access during the Formula 1 weekend. Let’s take a look at what makes each so special!

Circuit of The Americas Experiences F1 USGP Legends Club Lunch with a Legend Emerson Fittipaldi 46Lunch with a Legend

One of the biggest differences between Main Grandstand – Option A Packages & Main Grandstand – Option B Packages is the inclusion of the coveted Lunch with a Legend event, which is only included in Main Grandstand – Option A packages.

Main Grandstand – Option B Packages offer similar seating to Option A packages with some slight variations. Witness the cars line at the starting grid at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez track and experience the screaming straight, the Pit Lane action, the final turn, and the finish line. It is important to note once more that Main Grandstand – Option B packages do not include access to the Lunch with a Legend.

What To Do in Mexico: Making Your F1 Experience Unforgettable

  
  
  

Mexico City, Gran Premio de Mexico VIPMexico City is one of those few but magical cities that encompass an entire country’s current state of ever-advancing modernization while bowing at its rich history. Mexico City manages to create a harmonious balance between the cultural shifts of today and celebrating its traditions. With the FORMULA 1 GRAN PREMIO DE MEXICO 2015 approaching, it’s time to start planning your experience today. Once you’ve purchased your Official Ticket Packages, you’ll need to plan out what the rest of your trip looks like. Whether you’re a touring the beautiful canals of Xochimilco by boat or traveling back in time while visiting the ancient city of Tenochtitlán. Below we’ve compiled a list of activities/things for you or the whole family!

Pump Up the Adrenaline

Like the name suggest, ATV Forestal involves two things: the forest and ATVs. How much cooler does it get? A first of its kind, ATV Forestal uses extreme sports activities and combines them with a self-sustainable model that aims to reforest the area on and around the Ajusco Mountain. All ATV tours come with a trained guide, who will take you to unimaginable locations such as Mezontepec, Volcan Pelado, the Tres Marias region, and many other places. ATV Forestal puts on three training courses, split into a 4-hour course for beginners or a more advance course of 8-hours.

F1 Mexico Grand Prix RacingExperience Mexico's Nightlife

If the wilderness isn’t really your style, Mexico offers a nightlife that rivals some of the biggest and most opulent ones around the globe. The best places for having an awesome time in Mexico City involve dancing in one way or another. From the Chinese restaurant near San Ángel that turns into a clandestine dance hall or the hidden bar in Polanco, which you can only enter through a door disguised as a restaurant fridge. If dancing isn’t for you, one of Mexico’s 300 neighborhoods will surely have something for you.

Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez Stadium SectionGet In Touch With Nature

While most of the world talks about that other famous little park in New York City, Mexico City has had its own behemoth for centuries. Chapultepec Park (Bosque de Chapultepec) sits on a more than 1,600 acres, that’s DOUBLE the size of Central Park. Chapultepec Park is Mexico City’s largest oasis and one of the loveliest places to visit. The park features a plethora of tourist attractions: the Chapultepec Zoo & Botanical Gardens, Chapultepec Castle, a formerly an imperial palace and presidential residence, several museums, as well as some of Mexico’s more important monuments.

Tour Mexico’s Floating Gardens

Known as the Venice of Mexico, Xochimilco (pronounced so-chee-mil-co) has earned the name with its miles of canals and the natural beauty that surrounds it. Take a boat ride through the canals and learn about the Aztec civilization and culture. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon with your family or significant other. You can expect to pay around 350 pesos (24 USD) for a 1-hour boat ride for two people.

Circuit of The Americas Experiences F1 USGP Legends Club Gourmet Food 129Reward Your Tastebuds

Mexico is home of some of the world’s greatest culinary innovations. Each one of Mexico City’s colorful neighborhood offers cuisines that vary from traditional dishes to the forward-thinking cooking techniques. Mexico City is a rarity: from open-air markets to the highest-end restaurant, the food is magnificent. Whether you have chilaquiles for breakfast, fried tostadas topped with ceviche for lunch, or the delicious mole poblano for dinner your taste buds won’t be able to stop thanking you.

5 Reasons Why You Need to go to the 2016 Pro Bowl in Hawaii

  
  
  

QuintEvents NFL PRO BOWL NFL On Location 2013 Celebration resized 600The announcement has been made! The 2016 Pro Bowl is returning to Hawaii after taking a year-long hiatus in Arizona, when it was paired with Super Bowl XLIX. Now, more than ever, you should be jumping at the opportunity to attend the Pro Bowl.

To prove my point, I've compiled five reasons why you need to go to the 2016 Pro Bowl. Read on to jump off the fence and begin planning your trip to Hawaii!

1. An Excuse to Vacation in Paradise

Let's face it. We all want to vacation in paradise. BUT, when paradise could take several flights to get to, sometimes the trip seems a little less appealing. Being located on the east coast myself, I understand Hawaii is not a "quick trip" away. 

With that being said, if you were going to make a vacation out of your trip to the islands and also check a big experience off your bucket list in the process, I'd say that's a definite reason to make the trip!

pro bowl nfl on location quintevents resized 600 resized 600

From some of the most beautiful and diverse landscapes you'll ever witness, to historic landmarks, to white sand beaches boasting the clearest blue waters, to unparalleled outdoor and water activites, to delectable local fare, and much, much more, Hawaii has so much to offer vacationers.

Home of the 2016 College Football Playoff National Championship: Phoenix

  
  
  

College Football Premium Package resized 600After making its debut in Texas during January, resulting in Ohio State being named national champions, the College Football Playoff is making its way to Phoenix, Arizona for the 2016 College Football Playoff National Championship. 

Having recently played host to Super Bowl XLIX, the University of Phoenix Stadium and the city itself are prepared to host crowds of the caliber expected for the 2016 national championship event. Read on to learn about the University of Phoenix Stadium, home of the 2016 College Football Playoff National Championship!

The University of Phoenix Stadium: "Unlike Any Other Stadium in America"

As stated on their website, the University of Phoenix Stadium is "unlike any other stadium in America because it's truly a multi-purpose facility." Built to be able to host football, basketball, soccer, consumer shows, motorsports, rodeos, concerts, and corporate events, this stadium can encompass events of all sizes and calibers. 

College Football National Championship 2016 Seating Chart resized 600

Located in Glendale, Arizona, right outside Phoenix, the stadium holds 63,400 seats (expandable up to 72,200 seats), boasts a "Go Green" mission and took three years to build. The University of Phoenix Stadium is 160,000 square feet of contiguous exhibit space and 20,000 square feet of meeting room space. To put into perspective its size, if it was stretched in a straight line, it would be 18 miles long. In fact, the amount of concrete used on the stadium is equavilent to 900 miles of sidewalk. 

Its massive size isn't the only thing that makes the University of Phoenix Stadium unique. On each level, there is a mural designed to represent Arizona's environmental attractions and the 400 Level is designed to represent the night sky. Additionally, there are four columns in the main concourse which show hieroglyphics of records and significant moments of the Arizona Cardinals.

To get the fans engaged during events, there are two large "thermometers" at the south end zone to gauge fan noise.
