First time to a BC!

I've been stalking and obsessing about tickets for over a month.

Ordered my tickets today, Section 318A!

Bought mine - section 223. Flying solo (no husband or kids), so hoping to get to do some actual horsey fangirling :lol:

I am not sure what type of seating is good to watch the finish line? Some seating prices are :shock: . I am debating if I should go one day when it returns to Churchill, or just stay home and be glued to the TV.

You'll see way more of the race at home on TV regardless of how much you spend on a seat, I promise that. :lol:

I was told section 316 and 317 near the finish line are reserved for owners, breeders, in the business types. So I don't think those "finish line" seats are available to the publc.
Maybe 116/117 is available.

I'll be able to see some of the race (giant screen and homestretch), but honestly, it's the atmosphere and one of kind racing day that I'm most looking forward too.
I've not been to a BC ... but I'm hoping it's special.

I have not been to one in awhile (2005, 2001) but it's a great day.

I'd go this year but for the price I can go to Europe. Some racing fan I am, huh?

I know the feeling! I went to Iceland for only 300 2.5 years ago- otherwise food and gas are insane over there. I can't get over anything that has tomatoes. Their tomato soup and sauces are AMAZZZZZZZING- better than Italy in my opinion (went to Rome).

Cant beat seeing some European runners that we rarely see other than during Breeders Cup. I wonder if Mendelssohn is running as a 4 year old?
