Keeneland has announced that tickets for this fall's Breeders' Cup World Championships will go on sale Wednesday, three months earlier than usual due to high demand for the event's debut at the storied Lexington track.

The Breeders' Cup is Oct. 30 and 31 at the 79-year-old facility, which last year converted its 1 1/16-mile main track surface from synthetic Polytrack to dirt in hopes of attracting thoroughbred racing's top competitors and events. The track and Breeders' Cup have invested $5 million in improvements including more premium seating and a 50,000-square-foot enclosed lounge.

Single-day tickets range from $35 to $375 on Friday and $50-$475 on Saturday. Two-day packages range from $295 to $1,225. Tickets can be purchased starting at noon EST Wednesday by calling (877) TIX-4CUP (849-4287) or online at http://www.breederscup.com .
