RACING BEHIND CLOSED DOORS
We are pleased that we are able to allow a number of owners (or their representatives) to attend race meetings. 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.
Arriving at the Racecourse - December onwards
An updated map shows you where to park when you arrive. There will be an arrival checkpoint inside the gate where you will then be asked to confirm you have pre-registered to attend through the PASS system and photographic ID checked.
We are providing the 1875 Suite, on the first floor of the main Grandstand, as a spacious facility for owners attending on the day. Racecards will be available in the Suite. The usual Premier Enclosure dress code will apply.
There will be a complimentary tea/coffee and water available. Unfortunately the new rules do not allow us to provide a complimentary food offer. No alcohol will be available to purchase or served as per the BHA Guidelines.
Please note that the Owners’ facility is on the first floor of the Grandstand and can be accessed via the escalator from the upper floor of the Main Grandstand Foyer. Please contact the Owners Liaison Manager if you have any mobility issues or accessibility requirements.
Viewing the racing
The Suite overlooks the racecourse with outside seating and standing areas and you will be able to walk down to the racecourse rail if you wish. There is no access to the Pre-Parade or Parade Rings, however, a designated area will be available for owners to view their horses. All floor markings/signage and instructions from raceday personnel must be observed and follow the one way systems in operation.
The Winner’s Room and Winner’s Enclosure are unavailable. The first four horses will be returning to the Parade Ring and there may be an opportunity for owners’ to view their horses placed outside the first four.
