Your PASScard

Important information regarding your entry to the races with your PASScard


The RCA have sent out PASScards to all active registered racehorse owners. This 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 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 system, Owners can log into the RCA's Pass concierge facility ( 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 their PASScard Helpline - 01933 270 333.

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.

How to use the PASS system

To reserve your badges when you have a runner, the RCA have devised the PASS Consierge Service. This allows the racecourse to comunnicate details of the day with you, helps owners manage their badge allocation and pre-allocate the badges to their guests and allow them to print tickets at home.

For syndicates and partneships, only the registered owners or nominated partners will have access to the PASS system. Members should contact their syndicate manager for badge allocations.

Owners who have registered with Weatherbys will have received an email from PASS inviting you to set up a PASS account.

After you have set up your account, go to and use your email address, Member ID (on the front of your PASScard) and your password to log in. Here, you will be directed to the "My Fixtures" page. here you will see the fixtures your horse(s) have been declared for. You will see this information from 2pm on the day of declarations.

Select the "More" button next to the relevant fixture name. Here you have the opportunity to enter the names of your chosen guests. Press "Submit" when you have done so. If you enter their email address and phone number the system will automatically send them a print at home ticket. Alternatively, they can pick up their badges upon arrival at teh Owners & Trainers desk.

If you did not receive the initial email to set up your account, or do not have an email registered with Weatherbys, contact the PASS Helpdesk on 01933 270333 or

Racecourse Badge Scheme for Owners 2019

All qualifying members will have their card automatically activated for January 1 2019. To qualify, ROA Members’ need to be registered owners and show as having 50% of a horse in full training with Weatherbys (or are one of two syndicators). 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.
