2021 Kentucky Derby: Churchill Hoping For 40-50 Percent Fan Capacity

Churchill Downs is hoping to welcome fans at as high as 50 percent capacity at the 2021 Kentucky Derby, CEO Bill Carstanjen told investors on Thursday’s third-quarter earnings call. According to the Courier-Journal, Churchill’s regular capacity is 165,000 people, so there could be as many as 82,500 fans at the Run for the Roses.

“We are starting with the assumption that we will limit the number of reserved seats to 40 to 50 percent of capacity, and we will delay selling any general admission tickets … until we are closer to the date of the Derby,” Carstanjen said.

Carstanjen added that he expects the company to retain the first Saturday in May date for the 2021 Kentucky Derby.
