describe the imageNovember 1, is coming at us full force, putting the 2013 Breeders’ Cup on our doorstep. The best horses, trainers and jockeys across the world are prepping themselves for what lies before them at Santa Anita – a field full of the highest quality of competition and 14 Championship races. With that being said, it’s no surprise that horseracing fans are hurrying to secure their spot in the stands for what is considered to be “the richest two days in sports.”

However, Santa Anita Park has many seating options, and simply looking at a map of the track isn’t enough when you’re trying to figure out what vantage point you want to have. Plus, these high stakes races and the track’s close proximity to Los Angeles tend to draw in a large celebrity crowd. This can significantly alter your experience because you can have the opportunity to be a VIP with these celebs in great seats!

So in this series, I am going to breakdown the different seating options available to you with Official Breeders’ Cup Ticket Packages, beginning with the Turf Club.

Turf Club Box Seats (East View)

The Turf Club box seats are located on the third floor level of the Turf Club, east view, above the walkways. From here, you get amazing views of the stretch and the finish line. Plus, just like all Official Ticket Packages, you’ll get VIP access and exclusive inclusions!

VIP Access

With a Turf Club Official Ticket Package you gain VIP access into the To The Post Parlor, which is a luxurious hospitality venue that overlooks the Paddock Walk. To The Post Parlor is inside the track so it is available to you whenever you want throughout the Breeders’ Cup races. It’s a great escape from the California elements and a place that you can meet up with your group if you get disconnected.

Inside the hospitality venue, you will find a gourmet buffet and beverages, such as coffee, tea, water and soda, along with a premium private bar. Self-automated tote machines are located throughout the venue, in addition to several televisions broadcasting the race action. This allows you to escape the track for a moment without missing a beat of the Championship races.

The best part? To The Post Parlor will be having exclusive thoroughbred industry celebrity appearances, such as Donna Barton Brothers and Jay Privman. Also in attendance will be Christopher McCarron and Jack Van Berg! That’s an opportunity you won’t want to miss!

Exclusive Inclusions

To say that Official Breeders’ Cup Ticket Packages have amazing inclusions is an understatement. The best part is that ticket packages bundle all these great things together so you pay one set price instead of paying for everything separately at Santa Anita.

With the Turf Club ticket package, you will receive your race day tickets for Friday and Saturday, so you can see all 14 Championship races, an Official Breeders’ Cup gift bag, and a VIP Fast Access Pass. This pass gives you VIP treatment, allowing you to skip the lines.

Turf Club Official Ticket Packages also offer you optional accommodations at luxurious hotels, so you don’t have to worry about finding your own lodging, and ground transportation to and from Santa Anita Park Friday and Saturday. This will allow you to relax and fully enjoy the Breeders’ Cup experience because you won’t be worried about traffic, paying for parking and finding a parking space.
