C-19 Badges

Following the announcement of a full lockdown until at least the end of January, the Scottish Government has confirmed that racing can continue behind closed doors. Only those essential to staging fixtures may attend and must continue to follow the protocols already in place. No owners will be permitted to attend a fixture until further notice.



Under Tier 4 Lockdown Ayr have an allocation of four badges per runner.

Additional badges can be applied for – contact the course directly for this. Any regional restrictions, the number of other owners attending on the day, and the “rule of six” will be factors influencing if your request can be accommodated.

Owners who live in an area currently under regional or local restrictions are reminded to follow the Government advice in that area.

Please also check your emails from PASS and the racecourse website for further updates on badge allocation and specific attendance protocols.

The most recent Scottish Government advice can be found here: https://www.gov.scot/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-events-sector-guidance/#definitions

  • Owners will access Ayr Racecourse by turning off Whitletts Road at the traffic lights at Tesco following the private racecourse road to the checkpoint where they will remain in the car to go through temperature checks answer health and questions and be issued with a wrist band. You will then enter the PR car park.
  • All owners, guests and representatives must bring Photo ID with them to the racecourse. It is not essential to bring your PASS Card.
  • Owners on course will have access to a dedicated 'owners' zone', which will be separated from raceday workers (trainers, stable staff, jockeys, officials, media etc.), who have undergone a more rigorous health screening process. For infection control purposes, no movement will be permitted between the two areas of the racecourse.
