Ticket packages for the 2014 Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event Presented by Land Rover, April 24-27, at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY, will go on sale starting November 1 at 9:00 a.m. Eastern U.S. time. The Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event is one of only six Four Star Three-Day Events in the world and the only one in the Western Hemisphere.
"Rolex Kentucky," as the nation's premier Three-Day Event is commonly known, is one of the world's most prestigious equestrian competitions and features the world's best horses and riders vying for their share of $250,000 in prize money as well as a shot at the $350,000 Rolex Grand Slam of Eventing which is awarded to any rider who wins the Rolex Kentucky, Mitsubishi Motors Badminton and Land Rover Burghley Four Star Events in succession.
Darren Ripley, President of Equestrian Events, Inc. (EEI), producer of the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event, said, "Next April's event will play a large role in determining who will make the US team for the Eventing World Championships at next summer's World Equestrian Games. Interest is sure to be at an all-time high and we recommend that all our fans go on line and order their tickets as soon as they become available!"
Several ringside hospitality packages offering a custom world-class experience are available. Featuring prime locations and hospitality amenities, these packages include the "Patron Plus" and "Patron Club" options, both of which include admission to the Kentucky Horse Park, the International Trade Fair and all four days of competition. Also included are closed-circuit televisions, dressage and stadium jumping commentary, a keepsake pin, and an official event program.
Advance sale ticket packages include four-day, three-day (Fri-Sat-Sun) and single-day general admissions, as well as group sales and reserved grandstand seating. All general admission tickets include parking, admission to the Kentucky Horse Park and International Trade Fair. Reserved grandstand seating is sold separately from admission.
Once again this year, spectators may purchase Land Rover Tailgate reserved spaces along portions of the famed Cross-Country Course at the Kentucky Horse Park. The purchase of a Land Rover Tailgate space provides a reserved location for a passenger vehicle plus general admission for up to six people. Standard and Premium tailgating spaces are available at costs of $300 and $395 respectively. Tailgaters may bring their own food or there will also be concessions stands near the tailgating locations. Given the popularity of the Land Rover Tailgate at the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event over the last three years, it is sure to sell out and those interested are urged to reserve their spaces early.
