Members of Sandown Park Racecourse 


  • Members of Sandown Park Racecourse will not receive any refund for any cancellation of racedays.
  • If an event is cancelled, altered or postponed, Sandown Park will use reasonable endeavours to try to contact the attendee as soon as possible to inform them.
  • It is the attendees’ responsibility to check the website or onsite marketing regularly in the run up to an event to ascertain whether an event has been cancelled or re-scheduled.
  • Sandown Park shall not be in breach of the event ticket agreement by virtue of any cancellation, alteration or postponement.
  • Sandown Park may make alterations to events which are not material in nature and so no refunds will be given. A material change is a change which, in Sandown Park Racecourse’s reasonable opinion, significantly alters an event from its billing at the point of ticket purchase.
