Nottingham Racecourse


Thank you for choosing to run your horse with us at Nottingham.

We are pleased that, as part of the phased return of owners to racecourses in line with the Government guidance for elite sports grounds, we are able to allow a limited number of owners (or their representatives) to attend race meetings held behind closed doors. However, to minimise risk for owners and prioritise the safety and wellbeing of all raceday attendees, there will be a number of protocols in operation. We understand some of these are very different from your usual raceday experience but we ask for your co-operation and understanding in these exceptional circumstances.


We also understand and share the frustration held by owners that due to the Public Health England, DCMS and Safety Advisory Group protocols currently in place, we remain unable to offer the full raceday experience with which you will, no doubt, be familiar.


You will have received information from the BHA outlining the procedures in place and the protocols required to be completed prior to you being allowed on the racecourse as an owner. These protocols also apply to anybody else you nominate to attend with you, or representing you on the day. You are entitled to four owners per runner.


Following changes to Government coronavirus requirements, from Monday 14 September owners or their representatives attending British race meetings will be asked to gather in no more than groups of six people. This rules applies to all indoor and outdoor areas of the Owner Zone. In order to ensure the provision of correct and up to date information, all owners and their guests will be asked to provide their contact details on arrival at the racecourse to support the NHS Test and Trace requirements, if this information has not already been provided through the PASS System. The data will be collected, stored and managed in line with GDPR.


All owners and guests should continue to observe social distancing guidelines and wear face coverings on arrival at the racecourse and when indoors (if not eating or drinking).


All owners must ensure that they have read and understood the Owners’ Protocols. Guidelines published.



Please read the important information and assessments that need to be completed prior to the raceday.
