Kentucky derby/Kentucky oaks???? Need help plz!
 
[COLOR="rgb(72, 209, 204)"][/COLOR]

ok,so yall understand everything I will explain...my parents want to take my on a trip next summer fir my senior trip.well we wanted to go to the Kentucky derby.but I have been reading that if u don't have a seat then all u may see is the horses and not the race..I found a site called derbybox.com that sells tickets to the derby and a seat in the grand stand farthest from the finishing line and on the bottom bleacher part is $250....but then I found tickets on the. same site for the Kentucky oaks and they are $190 I think and u r on the bottom bleachers right in front of the finishing line...my questions are...is the derby worth seeing for that much money...and do u think that website is legit...also would the kentucjy derby be almost like the oaks except it's fillies in it? I mean wats the difference..would both be very cool to see..I need to decide soon though.any help would be most appreciated!!!thanks!!!

Honestly, I thought the derby was hot, boring, and long. Watching the race was fun, but you wai hours and hours for it. Much better on TV

if it were me i'd go to the derby....i wouldnt mind being there for hours....i could find cool people to talk (and I'd have a good chance [possibly] of meetin' celebs lol) :) hehe but i wouldnt know about the site. Is there a way you could get the tickets from the kentuckyderby.com?? They have stuff on both the KO and KD

I dunno, I spent a lot of time on the tracks and it was fine when I had a job to do and wasn't there as a spectator...The times I went just casually to watch it was rather boring. You're there all day for a few minutes of racing. I prefer to just throw a big party and watch it at home or something.
