Important information regarding your entry to the races with your PASScard
The RCA are in the process of sending out the new PASScards to all active registered racehorse owners. This new card will act as your means of admittance when you have a runner. It has also been linked to your ROA membership and can be activated for the Racecourse Badge Scheme for Owners when you qualify. Please use this card as you would do your (blue) Horseracing Privilege Card.
Please keep your blue Horseracing Privilege Card, as this has your ROA Membership number on it. This can also be found on the back of the new card, against “Card number”.
Through the new system, Owners can log into the RCA's Pass concierge facility (rcapass.com) and pre-designate their allocation of badges to their guests. But don't worry if you do not have access to the internet regularly, as your card will continue to work as your previous PASScard or Horse Racing Privilege Card did when you present it at the Owners and Trainers entrance.
If you have not yet received your new PASScard or log in details, please contact the RCA directly on 01344 873 536.
Your allocation of badges on days when you have a runner will be available to view on the online PASScard system after 2pm on the day of declaration.
Racecourse Badge Scheme for Owners 2017
All qualifying members will have their card automatically activated for January 1 2017. To qualify, ROA Members’ need to show as having 50% of a horse in full training with Weatherbys (or are one of two nominated partners in a racing partnership). If you do not qualify straight away, our system will automatically activate your card once your ownership reaches this threshold.
There is no need to apply for the scheme.
To check your current activation status please log into the ROA Members Area, and click on Member Profile.
If you do not currently qualify for the Racecourse Badge Scheme, we do have two new schemes which members who own less than 50% of a horse in training can use - the ROA / ARC Admission Scheme and the ROA / JCR Admission Scheme.
There is a PASScard helpdesk number available via Weatherbys: 01933 270 333.
