LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Visitors to the Kentucky Derby next year will have some new seating options.

Churchill Downs said Tuesday it is adding stadium-type seating at the first turn, with about one-third of 30 ascending rows under cover. It will include unlimited food and drink, betting windows and restrooms on the ground floor.

Ticket prices include the Kentucky Oaks on the day before the Derby and range from $698 for uncovered seats to $799 for seats located under cover.

The new section replaces the Infield Club, a venue that was located in the infield during the past three years.

The 2013 Derby is set for May 4.
