ARCADIA, Calif., May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Breeders' Cup Ltd. and QuintEvents will expand the event's travel/experience package offerings in 2013, taking advantage of the return of the Breeders' Cup World Championships to Santa Anita Park this November.

As the Breeders' Cup's Exclusive Official Ticket, Hospitality and Travel Package Provider, QuintEvents will launch the sale of 2013 packages six months in advance of this year's renewal of sport's richest event.  Utilizing many of the top hotels and on-site ticket and hospitality locations, organizers have finalized arrangements for the Friday, Nov. 1, and Saturday, Nov. 2 culmination of the Thoroughbred racing season.

Designed to bring fans closer to the sport by providing access previously reserved for only major sponsors and TV partners, "Breeders' Cup Experiences" is detailed and now available at, with five newly-minted packages starting at just $599.

Kentucky Derby winner, Orb, may follow in the footsteps of Unbridled (1990), Sunday Silence ('89), Alysheba ('87) and Ferdinand ('86), all Derby champions who also won the Breeders' Cup Classic as three or four-year-olds.  Animal Kingdom, who won the Kentucky Derby in 2011, went on to take second in the Breeders' Cup Mile in 2012.  Among other familiar Derby competitors who have graced the Breeders' Cup starting gates in November are Street Sense, Curlin and Skip Away.

The Official program is available to individuals, groups and corporations, combining combinations of tickets, hotel accommodations, on-site hospitality, fast-access and other amenities. It provides a customizable, one-stop shopping experience with the inventory coming directly from and guaranteed by Breeders' Cup and QuintEvents as opposed to ticket brokers, websites or agents whose transactions can be risky and insecure.

This year's Official offerings through Breeders' Cup Experiences include:

The Grandstand packages have their own special inclusions with an exclusive Saturday morning breakfast, hospitality venue including lunch and cash bar and $50 VISA® Gift Card among the benefits. 

The FrontRunner Restaurant package, featuring access to the track's most premium level of the Turf Club, includes tickets to both Friday & Saturday plus gourmet fare, simulcast TV coverage, private wagering, private paddock viewing area, ground transportation/preferred parking, fast access, gift bags and celebrity appearances.  

The Turf Terrace II package and the Turf Club Box Seats package are four days/three nights hotel-stay offerings centered in the most exclusive locations at Santa Anita. Celebrities and expert handicappers will be on hand both days.
