Aintree Racecourse

A WARM WELCOME TO AINTREE RACECOURSE

 

At Aintree, we endeavour to provide owners and trainers with all that you and your guests require for an enjoyable visit to the racecourse.


Welcome to Aintree’s information page for owners, trainers and jockeys. We hope that you find this information useful, and if you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to email us and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

 

RETURNING TO THE RACECOURSE

We remain committed to providing you with the best raceday experience we can given the circumstances. However, strict protocols still remain in place and we encourage you to please take the time to read the details below.

 

We can offer six badges per runner and due to current circumstances and guidelines (‘rule of six’), we will not be in a position to offer more badges per runner. To enable us to ensure that all of the appropriate arrangements are in place, minimise risk for Owners and prioritise the safety and wellbeing of all attendees, we ask you to provide us with the details of those who will be attending by no later than 4pm on the day before the race meeting.

Prior to your arrival, please note the following very important points:

  • All owners will need to complete a two-stage screening process. This includes the COVID-19 online learning module (available via the ROA website) and a personal health assessment to be completed in advance of raceday, followed by health questions and a temperature check on arrival at the racecourse.

 

  • All owners, guests and representatives must bring Photo ID with them to the racecourse. Please also bring your PASS Card if you have one.

 

  • Due to Liverpool being a Tier 3 lockdown area, Owners must travel separately in their individual household bubbles. Any Owners travelling together, and mixing household bubbles in cars, will be refused entry.

 

  • Once inside the racecourse owners can only mix with those in their individual household bubble. This includes when seated to eat and drink in the restaurant. Again, this is due to Liverpool being a Tier 3 lockdown area.

 

  • You must wear a face mask when entering the racecourse and in all public areas at all times. Face masks may only be removed when seated at your specific table.

 

  • Owners on course will have access to the Lord Sefton Stand, which will be separated from raceday workers (trainers, stable staff, jockeys, officials, media etc), who have undergone a more rigorous health screening process. For infection control purposes, no movement will be permitted between the two areas of the racecourse.

 

On arrival at Aintree, please enter the racecourse via Seeds Lane entrance (use Sat Nav postcode L9 0LD). Please note there will be no access to the racecourse via Grand National Avenue. We strongly advise against the use of Public Transport to travel to Aintree and please be aware that the entrance for Owners is approximately 1 mile from Aintree Train Station.

On arrival, you will be directed to a lane where your temperature and Photo ID will be checked and wristband issued. After this, you will be directed to park and then asked to enter the Owners’ Zone where your registration details will be checked, via the PASS system.

Following registration, you will then be directed to the Lord Sefton Stand which will be your facility for the day. Within this area, which offers both internal and external viewing of the racecourse, you will be offered complimentary 3-course lunch with afternoon tea, together with a range of hot and cold drinks. You will also be able to view the Parade Ring and Winner’s Enclosure.

For those owners fortunate to win races during the day, we will provide you with a winning memento, photograph and a recording of the race itself (TVinaCard). We will also invite you into the Freebooter Bar, adjacent to the Winner’s Enclosure, for a celebratory glass of champagne and to re-watch the race.

 

Please note: Owners may not pass their unused badges to owners without horses competing that day or to other racegoers. This is a breach of the current restriction imposed by the UK, Wales and Scottish governments on spectators attending all sport events behind closed doors, whatever Tier they are in.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION
