We are getting close to this event. Does anyone know what they are expecting crowd-wise for this?

"We are expecting attendance of more than 60,000 for the 2017 FEI World Cup Finals™," said Mike West, CEO of the Omaha Equestrian Foundation which is producing the 2017 FEI World Cup Finals™. "The excitement is building by the day and tickets are selling fast. The Finals will undoubtedly be THE equestrian event of the year so make sure you don't miss out!"

Sounds like they are attracting some interesting people too. I guess Kaley Cuoco from Big Bang rides and her fiance qualified so she is expected to attend. They also mentioned on the radio that Bill Gates daughter rides, but weren't clear is coming because she qualified or is just attending.
