Along with budding flowers and birdsong, a welcome and eagerly awaited feature of spring is the Kentucky Derby, the grandest and most exhilarating day in horse racing. The stage doesn’t get any bigger than Churchill Downs and the stakes are never higher than the opening leg of the Triple Crown. Coupled with the beloved tradition of the Derby is its follow-up, the Preakness Stakes. The Preakness comes second only to the Kentucky Derby in terms of racing tickets sold, and comparisons between the two reveals commonalities and differences. The Kentucky Derby chooses "My Old Kentucky Home" as its theme tune, while the Preakness has "Maryland, My Maryland." Belmont Stakes tickets represent the third race in the prestigious Triple Crown - the race they call the “Test of the Champion” - in which the most exceptional horses of a generation make a bid for the Crown itself on the toughest and lengthiest of its tracks. The Belmont, despite being the oldest of the three, actually changed its theme song from "The Sidewalks of New York," to "New York, New York" in 1997 in a bid to attract younger racing fans. The Kentucky Derby dresses its winner in a blanket of roses while the Preakness Stakes favors black-eyed susans. The Belmont Stakes prefers to drape its winners in a mass of white carnations. Whether you want Kentucky Derby tickets, Preakness Stakes tickets or Belmont Stakes tickets, you will be entering an academy of equestrian excellence.
