I have never been racing before, what happens?

Do not worry - a day at the races really is a fun day for all as there are no complex rules to understand.


The first horse past the winning post has won the race and hopefully won you some money in the process! There are normally six races per raceday, sometimes this may increase to seven or eight, and the gates and all facilities open two hours before the first race time. There are 30 - 35 minute gaps between each race which gives you plenty of time to have a drink or something to eat, judge the horses for the next race at the paddock, place your bet and get to your vantage point to watch the race.


Approximately 15 - 20 minutes before each race the horses will be in the Parade Ring where you can pick out your horse and then place your bet. There are ample vantage points to view the race and cheer your horse home, before you proceed to the Winners' Enclosure to applaud the winning horse.

No outside food and drink are permitted into the main enclosure on our racedays but there are plenty of food outlets and concessions to choose from. On premier days when the centre course enclosure is open, we do allow you to bring your own picnic.

There is a cash machine available in the betting hall.

Under 18s gain FREE entry to the racecourse for all fixtures.

Please note children must be accompanied by an adult at all times, with a maximum of two children per adult. Should you wish to bring more than two children per adult, please contact the racecourse. 

No dogs are permitted in the Main Enclosure or Course Enclosure, with the exception of assistance dogs.

You can ask any of our staff who will be more than happy to help or visit the Information Point which is located at the Raceday Office.

Leading organisations in British Horseracing have got together to increase awareness of the high standards of equine welfare in the sport.


The initiative aims to improve understanding of the care given to our horses throughout and after their careers in racing. The campaign is supported by the British Horseracing Authority, the Racecourse Association, Racehorse Owners Association, the Professional Jockeys Association, the National Trainers Federation and The Jockey Club.

'The Going' is a description of the ground conditions underfoot on the racecourse.


The Jockey Club reports the Going as: Heavy – Soft – Good to Soft – Good – Good to Firm – Firm – Hard.


Each of these terms may be combined to provide a more accurate description: Soft (Good to Soft in places), Soft (Heavy in places) etc. If a 'Going map' is available, it will show any variance in the conditions around the course. The Going report may also provide additional information such as 'watering' on dry days. This is when the Clerk of the Course gives the order to water the course to make the Going softer.
