WHAT TO WEAR TO THE RACES

 

Racing doesn't happen every day, so why not treat your visit as a special occasion? We encourage smart dress in our Premier and Hospitality Enclosures but our Grandstand Enclosure has a more relaxed approach.

Racegoers are encouraged to dress for the occasion with most opting to wear smart casual outfits but here many opt to dress in a more relaxed way.

 

Fancy dress is permitted in the Grandstand Enclosure and should not be offensive in any way. If you are planning to wear fancy dress and you are not sure if it is suitable, please call us in advance to check and avoid disappointment on the day.

 

While our enclosure dress codes are relaxed, please note we do not permit football shirts, vests or bare tops within our Grandstand Enclosure. We reserve the right to refuse entry to the Racecourse if the dress code is not adhered to.

Racegoers are encouraged to dress for the occasion with most opting to wear smart casual outfits. During the summer flat racing season, many opt to dress up, accessorising with hats and fascinators. A light jacket or blazer is another popular choice in case of chilly evenings, paired with smart shoes.


During the winter months, we enjoy the return of Jump racing to Sandown Park and encourage you to dress for the weather – ensuring you stay comfortable and warm! A tweed jacket or blazer is a popular choice and while hats are not necessary, they’re great for when it is cold and wet!


While our enclosure dress codes are relaxed, please note we do not permit fancy dress, football shirts, vests or sportswear within our Premier Enclosure. We reserve the right to refuse entry to our Premier Enclosure if the dress code is not adhered to.

 

Summer racing style

 

Showcase your best and most colourful outfits. For ladies, many opt for dresses and skirts in the warmer weather, or jumpsuits are a great alternative. Hats and fascinators are optional, but make a fantastic accessory.


For men, a light jacket or blazer is a popular choice in case of chilly evenings, paired with smart shoes.

 

Jump racing style

 

During the colder months of the year we enjoy the return of Jump racing to Sandown Park Racecourse. Different to our summer fixtures, the style is smart while being comfortable and warm.

 

A tweed jacket or blazer is a popular choice for winter - while looking stylish and on trend, they're also normally heavy-weight, perfect for keeping the cold off. While hats aren't necessary, they're great for when it's cold and wet!

Music and racing

 

For our music nights we operate as one enclosure with a relaxed dress code. Shorts and casual shoes are permitted across the racecourse. Please note that Hospitality guests at these events are required to adhere to our standard smart casual guidelines, following the Premier Enclosure dress code below.

See our Terms of Entry for more information on our dress code.
