The first floor grandstand seating is an all reserved bench style seat, similar to seating at a football stadium. These seats are very economical and a great choice for budget conscious racing fans. The main difference in pricing is reflected in the proximity to the finish line. This is the cheapest area in the track for reserved seats for Derby and Oaks. The starting gate for the Derby is right in front of Section 128. This is an exciting place to sit to see the start of the “Greatest Two Minutes in Sports”.
