OUR FIRST raceday OF THE YEAR

 

Wincanton's first fixture of 2021, with eight races including the 2:05 Paddy Power Dipper Novices' Steeple Chase. 

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.

And don’t forget you can watch our racing live on Racing TV and ITV Racing and watch replays of every race staged at our racecourses on our website just 15 minutes after they have finished.

INFORMATION FOR RACEHORSE OWNERS

Jockey Club Racecourses very much looks forward to welcoming Owners to our courses, with many of the Covid protocols now removed from the raceday experience. Your patience and support since we welcomed owners back to our courses in April has been hugely appreciated.

 

As it was before March 2020, we are delighted to offer six Owners badges to those with runners on the day, as well as lunch in our Owners facilities, access to the paddock etc. Syndicates will be offered the choice of Owners badges or a larger selection of General Admission badges (syndicate managers should speak to the individual racecourses at the entry stage to arrange details).


There will be no social distancing and access to the paddock will be granted as it was before the pandemic, with only the occasional limitation for major handicaps at courses with smaller paddocks. Racegoers are strongly encouraged to wear a face covering in areas where they come into close contact with lots of other people, particularly indoors, for the safety of all racegoers.


Owners should continue to use the PASS system as previously to request tickets.

 

We look forward to welcoming you to our racecourses and wish you the best of luck with your runner(s).

 

Nevin Truesdale, CEO, The Jockey Club
