IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Currently all horseracing fixtures in England must take place behind closed doors and without spectators.

 

However, on February 22nd 2021 the Government announced plans to help the country out of its National Lockdown. As part of these plans racing fixtures staged from May 17th 2021 will be able to welcome up to 4,000 spectators, if the Government’s tests are met for moving into Phase 3 of lifting lockdown restrictions. Similarly, if the Government’s tests and criteria are met, then indoor conferences and events of up to 1,000 people will also be possible from May 17th. The Government will provide further guidance nearer the time.

The Government also announced that events staged from June 21st 2021 will be able to operate at pre-pandemic capacities, if the Government’s tests are met for moving into Phase 4 of lifting lockdown restrictions.

 

FEBRUARY 2021: NEW ANNOUNCEMENT: 

Warwick Racecourse has been granted the authority by the WDC and WCC to extend its managed boundaries during racing hours, in order to remove the risks posed by unauthorized and illegal viewing of the races along the stretch of the track that runs adjacent to Bread and Meat Close and Vitell Drive.

 

As a result of this decision, access to St Mary’s Area Car Parks 3 and 4 will be restricted to residents and their guests only. There will therefore be no public parking available in any St Mary’s Area Car Parks, which is standard procedure on days when we are racing.

 

It has been carried out to protect public safety, and has been endorsed as a necessary measure by Public Health England. Access will be granted to the area immediately after racing concludes. Thank you for your understanding.

 

Please continue to visit our website, check our social media channels and email newsletters for news, updates and racing at home content. Please stay safe, stay home and watch our racing live on Racing TV.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR RACEHORSE OWNERS

We look forward to welcoming you to our racecourses.

 

As you will no doubt know, a limited number of spectators will be permitted to attend our racecourses in line with new Government restrictions, from May 17th. Please note that the number of racehorse owners with a declared runner will be limited to a maximum of six owners per horse, unless when stipulated otherwise.

 

Owners attending must comply with our terms and conditions of entry and agree to The Jockey Club code of conduct, which include following the current Government COVID-19 restrictions, including social distancing and no mixing between households.

 

Please continue to book badges by 4pm the day before you wish to attend. Track and trace information must also be provided for all attendees. The entry process at each racecourse will be the same as for spectators.

 

Owners will now be able to mix with trainers socially and you will also have access to enter the Parade Ring and Winner’s Enclosure, which currently will be only for your specific race/s. Face coverings must be worn at all times in these areas and when on grandstand steppings or seating, a covered area, in a queue and anywhere indoors, except for when seated eating or drinking. Everyone is also strongly recommended to wear face coverings when in other outdoor areas, but this is not mandatory.

 

Catering and hospitality will remain in line with Government COVID-19 protocols, where all food and drink can only be ordered, served and consumed seated. Please check the relevant racecourse websites for more details on the offerings at each venue.

 

We wish you every success on the day and look forward to you joining us soon.
