Here are the latest developments in the horseracing industry and on what’s happening here at Huntingdon Racecourse.
Our fixtures in November will take place behind closed doors. With our loyal annual badge holders and customers not on site, we will ensure to keep you updated on all of our social media channels.
Remember you can watch the Racing for free at home! All you need to do is call Racing TV on 0113 859 1477 on the day of racing, give your name and email address and confirm that you’re an Annual Badge Holder at Huntingdon then quote the promo code for the day. The codes for November meetings have been sent to you previously.
Our Boxing Day fixture has moved to Tuesday 22nd December. The rescheduling follows discussions between racecourse groups including Jockey Club Racecourses, which runs Huntingdon, the Horsemen’s Group and the British Horseracing Authority as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to be managed. With the sport continuing behind closed doors for the foreseeable future, fixtures over the festive period are being rescheduled. Switching Huntingdon’s meeting from Boxing Day is expected to generate more betting-related revenue for the industry, while also saving costs associated with staging what is ordinarily a significant event in the local and racing calendars. As well as Huntingdon, the Boxing Day fixture at fellow Jockey Club Racecourses venue Market Rasen, as well as those at Sedgefield and Fontwell, have been moved to different dates.
It is our intention to compensate our annual badge holders for all fixtures they’re unable to enjoy because of the racing behind closed doors with a credit towards your 2021 annual badge proportionate to the number of fixtures lost.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the team on 01480 453373.
2021 ANNUAL BADGES
We are preparing to launch our 2021 annual badges. As there’s the chance that capacities may be restricted once spectators are allowed to return to racing, and that we may see increased demand for annual badges if this group of customers could be the first or only spectators allowed on course, we are keen to give you, as an existing badge holder, the opportunity to secure your place on our racecourse next year.
If you would like to be prioritised as a 2021 member and have your credit for the missed fixtures of 2020 rolled over towards your next badge, please email us or submit the form in the previous email. Applications must be submitted by the 15th November.
