We have a Shuttle Service running between the Racecourse and Doncaster Interchange (Train Station) for all race meetings. It will commence from the Interchange at approximately the time of our gate opening and continue until approximately 30 minutes before our first race. The return journey (which will stop at a designated point on sound of the bell) will start just after the penultimate race, and continue until approximately one hour after the last race. If there is entertainment following racing the service will continue until this has finished.

ARC C-19 badge policy

ARC currently have an allocation of six 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.

Racehorse Owners

  • We are pleased to be able to continue to welcome Owners, with horses running at that meeting, to watch their horses run. 
  • In light of these restrictions, we would ask that all owners planning on attending Doncaster Racecourse do so in accordance with the latest guidelines for their area. 
  • Please be aware that owners that do wish to attend the racecourse will be asked to comply with Tier 3 restrictions, including:
    • All owners attending the racecourse must complete the Covid-19 learning module, available via the ROA website.  In addition, they may have to undertake health questions and a temperature check on arrival.
    • All owners attending must bring Photo ID, please also bring your PASS Card if you have one.
    • You must only travel and mix with other members of your household or bubble whilst on your way to, and at the racecourse – this applies to both inside and outside areas
    • A complimentary lunch will be served in the owners’ facility.
    • All food and drink will be table served
    • Please wear a face-covering in all inside areas, including on arrival and exit, unless seated at your table

We would respectfully request that owners do not pass their unused badges to those without horses competing that day or to other racegoers. This is a breach of the current restriction imposed by the UK, Wales and Scottish governments on spectators attending all sports events behind closed doors, whatever Tier they are in.
