My name is Doug Dearen, the founder of this company and over the next 17 weeks I’ll be submitting blogs about this years Derby and just about anything and everything that has to do with The Run for the Roses. As a Louisville resident I first went to the Derby back in 1976 as a high school senior. Like most teenage derby visitors, I went to the infield with a bunch of friends. Through out the blanket, sat on my cooler and tried to pick some winners. Hated it. Didn’t hate the Derby but hated being stuck in the infield where I couldn’t see a horse and stood in line for everything. Bathrooms, betting, cashing and food and drinks. I made a pledge that I wasn’t going back until, 1. I had seats. 2. Good Seats! 3. I would dress up in the best Derby threads I could afford. Finally, after college I was able to accomplish all 3 when my Dad got a clubhouse box for the 1981 Derby for our family. This year (Derby 2016) will be my 35th consecutive Derby.

15 yrs ago I started DerbyBox.com with a vision for helping people attend this great event. Today, Thousands upon thousands of customers have attended the Derby as our guests it is our passion and mission to “Share the Derby” with as many folks as possible. It’s a pretty safe bet that DerbyBox.com has sent more people as a single entity to the Kentucky Derby than any other 10 similar companies combined. Sold more party tickets, more Derby hotel rooms, more Derby restaurant reservations, Limos, cab rides, horse farm tours etc, etc. My parents taught me not to brag but the reality is, if we at DerbyBox.com HAVE NOT sent more people to the Derby than anyone else, then shame on us because this is all we do.! We don’t do Masters Golf, Super Bowl or Indy 500. We DO THE DERBY and we do it all year long, every day and all day. NOTHING Else. 12 months a year Kentucky Derby.
