Lone Star is a first-time host for the Breeders' Cup.
"We always knew that a seat to the Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships would be a hot ticket in a great sports and entertainment market like the Dallas-Fort Worth area," Lone Star president Corey Johnsen said. "The general public responded enthusiastically, and we can't wait to showcase Lone Star Park to an international audience next month."Lone Star, which has about 12,000 permanent indoor and outdoor seats, is erecting about 39,000 temporary seats with accompanying service structures that include mutuel windows, concessions, merchandise sales, and restrooms. The seating will stretch from around the far turn, through the homestretch, and into the first turn.All seating on Breeders' Cup day at Lone Star is reserved, and there are no general admission tickets.
