Kentucky Derby Ticket Exchange

The Kentucky Derby has partnered with Ticketmaster to launch the Kentucky Derby Ticket Exchange as the official fan to fan resale marketplace for Kentucky Derby, Kentucky Oaks and Churchill Downs Racetrack tickets.

As the Derby's only authorized resale platform, the legitimacy of tickets purchased through the Kentucky Derby Ticket Exchange is guaranteed. The Kentucky Derby encourages fans seeking to resell or buy resold tickets to only do so through Ticket Exchange.

To Buy Tickets

Buy Resale Tickets

Please note: all resold tickets will be delivered electronically and scanned from your mobile device.  After Derby, resale patrons will be contracted via email with an opportunity to purchase a physical commemorative ticket if desired.

Ticketholders who are unable to attend the Kentucky Oaks or Derby will be able to sell their tickets at face value or above using various pricing options and be assured that they meet all state and local regulations on ticket sales. Ticket buyers can be assured of the legitimacy of their tickets. The Kentucky Derby Ticket Exchange is completely integrated with the Derby’s Ticketmaster software and uses barcode verification to ensure the authenticity of the tickets.

First time users to the site will be required to set up a Ticketmaster account. Sellers will be prompted to enter their ticket’s bar code, select the desired ticket price at face value or above and list the expiration date. Sellers will receive automatic status notifications via email and can remove their ticket at any time. Ticketmaster pays the seller through direct deposit after the event has occurred on the scheduled event date.

Ticketmaster’s privacy rules provide anonymity for and prevent any interaction between the buyer and seller.
