Of course, the Pegasus is such a fan friendly event with its $100 fee just to get into the place.
Unless you get comped to everything, the 76ers at the Knicks next weekend will run you $100 to sit up in the rafters, $150+ if you actually want to see the numbers on the players silks, and $38 to park. Then, you have to watch the Knicks play for a couple of hours.
I'll take the Pegasus live and in person any day of the week.
I realize you're trolling, but that's probably not the best comparison. The market sets the prices for tickets to major sporting events. Tickets for 76ers games are expensive because they are a top team with enticing talent, particularly the extremely popular Joel Embiid. Those tickets are much cheaper for Hawks games. There is not such an abundance of interest in racing, even the Pegasus, that exorbitant prices are reasonable. Plus, the prices you mentioned include a seat. The $100 for the Pegasus does not. if you want a seat, you must pay MUCH more. I think it's a logical conclusion that the $100 fee to enter the grounds on Pegasus Day is more about who it keeps out, than who it lets in.
How do you think the response would be if we announced admission to Saratoga was $100? Given the uproar when the grandstand went from $3 to $5, I'm guessing not overly positive. You and Northfork apparently would be our two defenders. Good to know. Hopefully we won't have to call on you.
