Seats are available for the second biggest day in horse racing calendar with infield, general admission, top of the stretch, clubhouse turn, grandstand concourse, grandstand upper and turfside terrace areas still open.
Here is a graphic of the seating options:
Will Animal Kingdom be able to win his second consecutive race, thereby inching closer to the ever-elusive Triple Crown? The feat has not been accomplished since 1978, but the Kentucky Derby winner has already proven before that long odds will not deter him from making history.
The race is scheduled to take place at 6:19 p.m. eastern time.
