As you may be aware, from Wednesday 15th December, the Government has announced new regulations impacting large-scale events. Racing on Thursday will not be affected by these new regulations and therefore you do not need to demonstrate your Covid-19 status on entry to the racecourse on Thursday 16th December. We do however continue to recommend that you follow our spectator Code of Conduct here. Please be reassured, the wellbeing of our staff and racegoers remain our priority and work will continue to ensure you feel safe and secure attending our racecourses.

In line with UK Health Security Agency guidance, Racing continues to recommend the use of Covid-19 mitigations to keep racegoers safe.
