Additional Accommodations at Arlington Park Include Approximately 35,000 Temporary Seats, Heated Pavilions

Officials of the National Thoroughbred Racing Association, Breeders' Cup Limited and Arlington Park announced today that ticket applications are now available for the 2002 Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships at Arlington Park in Arlington Heights, Ill., to be held Saturday, October 26.

Today, Arlington Park is mailing Breeders' Cup ticket application forms to thousands of individuals who have requested applications since Arlington was announced as the 2002 site last December.

To accommodate the tremendous interest in the 2002 Breeders' Cup - the first time that the event will be held in the Chicago area - approximately 35,000 temporary stadium seats will be constructed around the permanent grandstand facility at the racetrack. All outdoor open-air seating will include convenient access to heated pavilions -- complete with mutuel windows, television monitors, food and beverage concessions, merchandise stands and restroom facilities.

All applications must be received at Arlington Park no later than Sunday, June 16, 2002, to be included in a lottery that will determine the order in which applications will be processed. Applications received after the deadline will be handled on a first come, first served basis, dependent upon seating availability. If the ticket order is filled, a confirmation with seat location will be received two to three weeks after June 16. Tickets will be delivered approximately 30 days prior to the 2002 Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships.

"Interest in this year's Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships has been very positive and we have already received thousands of inquiries for tickets," said Arlington Park President Steve Sexton. "To make it as fair as possible for the general public, we will conduct a lottery for tickets with a limit of six per household.

"From the start of our planning of venue construction for this magnificent event, our primary goal has been to ensure that every fan in attendance on Saturday, October 26 will have a very memorable and comfortable experience," added Sexton.

Tickets will be available for the following nine locations around the racetrack:

  • Marquee Village Dining (including table luncheon buffet and outside seating) - $285 (gray)
  • Apron Level Box Seat - $140 (red)
  • Marquee Village Reserved - $100 (yellow)
