INFORMATION FOR RACEHORSE OWNERS

Jockey Club Racecourses very much looks forward to welcoming Owners to our courses, with many of the Covid protocols now removed from the raceday experience. Your patience and support since we welcomed owners back to our courses in April has been hugely appreciated.

 

As it was before March 2020, we are delighted to offer six Owners badges to those with runners on the day, as well as lunch in our Owners facilities, access to the paddock etc. Syndicates will be offered the choice of Owners badges or a larger selection of General Admission badges (syndicate managers should speak to the individual racecourses at the entry stage to arrange details).


There will be no social distancing and access to the paddock will be granted as it was before the pandemic, with only the occasional limitation for major handicaps at courses with smaller paddocks. Racegoers are strongly encouraged to wear a face covering in areas where they come into close contact with lots of other people, particularly indoors, for the safety of all racegoers.


Owners should continue to use the PASS system as previously to request tickets.

 

We look forward to welcoming you to our racecourses and wish you the best of luck with your runner(s).

 

Nevin Truesdale, CEO, The Jockey Club

quality Racing

 

This is a day filled with high-quality jump racing, and a race that is a window into potential Cheltenham Festival ones to watch. The Scilly Isles Novices’ Chase (Grade 1) is open to horses 5 years and older. Last year's winner Defi Du Seuil went on to win JLT Novices' Chase (Grade 1) at Cheltenham Festival a month later. Who will succeed this season?
