The Jockey Club will welcome a limited number of spectators back to the races at four fixtures in September as part of a Government-approved series of pilot events.

Warwick Racecourse will cater for up to 1,250 people on-site, with provision for 200 racehorse owners and trainers, 186 annual members and 864 general admissions and hospitality spaces at its 21st September fixture. Annual Members will be given first opportunity to purchase, followed by a general sale.

Newmarket’s Rowley Mile racecourse will also welcome a limited capacity of spectators back to the races across all three days of The Cambridgeshire Meeting, on 24th, 25th and 26th September.

Spectator capacity numbers for each of the three days will be confirmed shortly, once finalised with local authorities.

Health and safety measures will be in place at all four fixtures in accordance with national requirements and British Horseracing Authority protocols, including the ability for racegoers to maintain social distancing and personal hygiene at all times.

More information on how to purchase tickets for the four pilot events will be available in due course.

A spokesperson for Jockey Club Racecourses, said:

“We’re really pleased to be staging these pilot events with spectators next month. It’s an important step towards welcoming spectators back to racing events as soon as it’s appropriate to do so, and on this long road to recovery we’re on as an industry.”
