Within the facility, you will have access to complimentary tea and coffee plus betting facilities and a bar that will only accept card payments. Please note tea and coffee will no longer be served at the annual member's entrance and there will be no further complimentary drinks vouchers however you will still be able to exchange a 2020 racecard voucher for a racecard.

Reciprocals are correct at the time of print to the best of our knowledge: they are subject to change and further dates will be confirmed at a later date as some racecourses are still reviewing their own annual membership packages.

Roderick Duncan has been appointed as the new Clerk of the Course taking on the part-time role from 3rd December.

Roderick has worked in racing for 14 years, primarily as Clerk of the Course at Southwell and Doncaster overseeing improvements to the racing facilities and race programmes at both courses.

Roderick will succeed Jack Pryor, who has been Clerk at Huntingdon since 2016. Jack will take on a new dual role within The Jockey Club from the same date continuing as Clerk of the Course at Market Rasen in addition to becoming Event Director at the Blenheim International Horse Trials, which are organised by The Jockey Club.

We wish Jack all the best with his new role and are immensely grateful for all of his hard work and contribution.

Where are you from?

I was born in Huntingdon and have lived here for 20 years, until 3 years ago when I moved to St Ives.


What is your background?

I studied an undergraduate degree at London Metropolitan University in Events Management. My degree involved various aspects of events management, such as live events, conferences and exhibitions, law, consultancy, HR, accounting and business innovation. Throughout my time at university I helped to plan a range of different events, such as an open mic comedy night for Crisis UK and an indie music night for up and coming artists in Camden.


Do you have any hobbies?

Some of my hobbies include shopping, fitness, reading and travelling.


What were you doing before joining the Jockey Club?

Before joining the Jockey Club, I worked as a business support assistant at Cambridgeshire County Council, and also worked at Waitrose and Partners for 5 years. In between those two roles I also worked at Tottenham Hotspurs Stadium selling donuts for Crosstown Donuts.


What does your current role involve?

My current role involves working with the sales team to help coordinate and manage hospitality bookings at both Huntingdon and Nottingham racecourse. I work with the sales service team to make sure that everything is organised and runs smoothly on race days in the restaurants and hospitality boxes.
