Cheltenham Racecourse



Jockey Club Racecourses very much looks forward to welcoming Owners to our courses, with many of the Covid protocols now removed from the raceday experience. Your patience and support since we welcomed owners back to our courses in April has been hugely appreciated.


As it was before March 2020, we are delighted to offer six Owners badges to those with runners on the day, Syndicates will be offered the choice of Owners badges or a larger selection of General Admission badges (syndicate managers should speak to the individual racecourses at the entry stage to arrange details).


There will be no social distancing and access to the paddock will be granted as it was before the pandemic, with only the occasional limitation for major handicaps at courses with smaller paddocks. Racegoers are strongly encouraged to wear a face-covering in areas where they come into close contact with lots of other people, particularly indoors, for the safety of all racegoers.

We look forward to welcoming you to our racecourses and wish you the best of luck with your runner(s).

Please note, here at Cheltenham, we do not operate the PASS system as we have our own online booking form which is emailed to Owners at the six-day entry-stage and again after decs. For more information or if you would like to enquire, please email

Nothing matches the experience of having a runner at Cheltenham, particularly at The Festival™. Our dedicated staff are here to ensure that Owners' visits run smoothly, from the distribution of badges to parking, access to the enclosures, lunch and, for those lucky enough to have a winner, the presentation of trophies.


We ensure a balanced programme of races leading up to The Festival™ in March and to the close of our season in April, giving Owners' the chance to run horses of all levels of experience here at Cheltenham. More details of this can be found in our Online Programme Book.
