|Breeders' Cup Ticket Application Deadline
is Friday, June 4
The last opportunity to be included in
a random drawing for tickets to this year's Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred
Championships at Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie, Texas, is Friday, June
4. Ticket applications have been accepted since late January and more
than 40,000 seats have already been requested.
The 21st Breeders' Cup, consisting of eight Grade I races with purses
and awards totaling $14 million, will be held Saturday, October 30.
To accommodate the tremendous interest in the 2004 Breeders' Cup - the
first time that the event will be held in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex
and the Southwest - plans call for installation of temporary seating to
accommodate an approximate crowd of 50,000.
Tickets available to the general public range from $25.00 to $125.00.
All applications must be received at Lone Star Park no later than Friday,
June 4, to be included in a random drawing 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. Tickets are limited
to six per household.

lonestarpark.com. Customers may also obtain applications via e-mail at

and have the option of selecting the Next Best Available Seating if their
first selection is sold out. Optional seating for Thursday, October 28
(International Jockey Championship Day) and Friday, October 29 (Walmac
Lone Star Derby Day) are also available in the ticket packages.
