I own 50% or more of a horse

Members of the ROA who own over 50% of a horse in training may be eligible to obtain FREE racecourse admission to over 1,300 fixtures per year through the Racecourse Badge Scheme for Owners (RBSO).

The scheme is an additional benefit of ROA membership. There is no charge for this but you do need to qualify each year.

If all of the following criteria applies to you then you DO qualify for this valuable benefit of membership and your PASScard will automatically be activated for the scheme.

You will receive a letter of confirmation and a booklet of participating fixtures once your PASScard has been activated (please allow up to 10 working days for this to arrive).

The qualifying criteria for the RBSO is as follows:

  • You must be a ROA member
  • You must hold a valid PASScard
  • You must be a registered owner with Weatherbys.
  • You must own at least 50% of a horse (or the equivalent in shares) or be the syndicator with at least 50% in a Syndicate or Partnership
  • You horse must be in full training, as indicated by your trainer on the 'Horses In Training Return'.

Entry onto this scheme entitles the member to complimentary admission to the Premier Enclosure (or equivalent).

Only owners with runners on the day will have access to the Owners and Trainers facilities.
