An open letter from our General Manager, Sophie Able

Welcome back. An open letter from Sophie Able, General Manager at Newmarket Racecourses

The team at The Rowley Mile are hugely excited to welcome spectators back on course this month, albeit in restricted numbers.

We’ve been working hard to ensure visitors can enjoy a safe return to the racecourse. Of course it will be a very different experience to normal while restrictions remain in place.

We are asking for the help and support of those joining us to adhere to the measures and protocols we have in place in order to ensure government guidance is followed at all times.

Until further notice tickets can only be purchased in advance and there will be no access to the racecourse for anyone who has not pre-booked. Social distancing remains in place, face masks will need to be worn indoors - and outdoors in certain settings - and the same limits on group sizes as in daily life apply.

More information is available via our website where you will also find a spectator code of conduct, which is in place across all Jockey Club racecourses. We are asking all attendees to read this in advance of the raceday.

Our teams will be on course to assist racegoers and anyone with any questions should feel to ask at any time. We are asking racegoers to follow any guidance they are provided by our teams on racedays to ensure everyone can have an enjoyable day and that safety protocols are met.

We can’t wait to welcome racegoers back on course and hope to see everyone again soon.

Sophie Able,

General Manager, Newmarket Racecourses
