LEXINGTON, Ky. (August 10, 2016) — The Breeders’ Cup today announced that fans currently holding tickets to the 2016 Breeders’ Cup World Championships can securely resell those tickets through TicketResell by SeatAdvisor. The Breeders’ Cup, Thoroughbred racing’s premier international event, will be held at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif., on Friday, November 4 and Saturday, November 5.
TicketResell is an online tool that allows patrons to resell tickets they can no longer use through SeatAdvisor Box Office; a guaranteed and secure system by SeatAdvisor.
TicketResell was developed by SeatAdvisor, Inc., a global ticketing software company and the official box office software provider of the Breeders’ Cup World Championships since 2008. This is the fourth consecutive year that the TicketResell program has been made available to Breeders’ Cup patrons. With TicketResell, if patrons are no longer able to attend the event, they are now able to resell their tickets directly through their online account held with the Breeders’ Cup. A desired resell price is set by the seller, and tickets are then added to the accessible inventory and made available for buyers.
All transactions are 100% secured and guaranteed byTicketResell, unlike other secondary market resellers.
“Over the past four years, TicketResell has provided customers with a safe and secure marketplace to resell their tickets and simultaneously provide other fans a second chance to get into areas where the inventory had been previously sold out,” said Breeders’ Cup President and CEO Craig Fravel. “We look forward to our continued partnership with SeatAdvisor in establishing an efficient ticket exchange system for our fans around the world.”
“Since Ticket Resell by SeatAdvisor was released, it has been highly rewarding to support the success the Breeders’ Cup has achieved by helping patrons confidently purchase and even resell their tickets for the historic event,” said SeatAdvisor President and CEO Brent Miller. “Through our partnership, patrons worldwide know they have access to all the available inventory on the highly secure Breeders Cup website, eliminating the need to search third party websites.”
