ARC Racecourses

There are two options now for owners with runners at ARC courses:

OPTION A - 8 Owners Badges

8 badges are available for each horse, offering complimentary access to the racecourse, as well as the specific Owners facilities.  Complimentary food and a bar will be available to all Owners Badge holders, along with access to the Parade Ring and Winners Enclosure. Owners will be required to register via PASS ahead of the meeting, and can purchase extra badges at the O&T desk at 50% of on the day General Admittance, subject to capacity of O&T facilities.

OR

OPTION B - 15 Complimentary General Admittance Badges

Owners (particularly commercial syndicates) who would prefer to bring a higher number of people to watch their horse race, rather than specific catering or facilities may claim 15 complimentary general admittance badges to attend per horse.  In addition, each horse will be allocated 8 paddock passes to be shared amongst their group to be used ahead of their race.

To claim this option, please contact the specific syndicates email address that will be included in the letter your receive from the racecourse, noting the names of those who you wish to attend, and clearly noting the syndicate leader to whom paddock passes shall be allocated.

FAQ for Owners at ARC courses

ARC - Racehorse Owners FAQs :17 May – 20 June 2021


We are very pleased that, with the relaxation of restrictions in place from Monday 17 May, we will be in a position to offer further improvements to the Owners raceday experience.


All owners that declare a horse to run at an ARC racecourse between 17 May and 20 June will receive a letter from the racecourse with full details of how to claim your badges and what to expect when you join us to watch your horse run.


Please find below some FAQ’s which may answer some more general questions you may have.


How many badges can I claim?
During this period, we will operate two options to offer as much flexibility as possible to both sole owners and larger groups and syndicates. Details of exactly how to claim either of these options will be in your declarations letter.

  • Option A – you will be able to claim up to six badges that will include access to the owners’ hospitality facilities and viewing areas.
  • Option B – you can claim up to twelve General Admittance badges, which will offer complimentary access to all of the public areas of the racecourse.

Both options will allow access to a certain number of people to the Parade Ring, please see below for more details. At this time, we are not in a position to blend the two options, but will review this as restrictions ease further.


Can I meet others indoors?
Yes, but please make sure to adhere to the rule of six, and maintain social distancing. Face coverings will be required to be worn whilst inside.


Do I need to wear a face covering?
Face coverings will only be required in indoor settings. The only outdoor setting to which owners have access on a racecourse where face coverings are required will be the Parade Ring and Winners’ Enclosure.


Can I access the Parade Ring?
ARC racecourses will endeavour to offer six places per runner in the Parade Ring before each race.
Please note that this number may differ depending on the specific racecourse layout and variables such as field size, but will be confirmed at the racecourse entrance.
Full details on how to access the Parade Ring will be included in your declarations letter.


Will I be offered any hospitality?
Owners who chose Badge Option A will be admitted to the dedicated owners’ facility, where complimentary catering will be available, along with the chance to purchase both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
Those who choose Option B will have access to all of the public areas of the racecourse and where food and drinks will all be available to purchase.


Can I meet my trainer and jockey?
As outlined above, a number of owners per runner will be allowed admittance to the Parade Ring for their specific race.
You are welcome to meet your trainer and jockey in public areas of the racecourse also, but are reminded to adhere to social distancing guidelines at all times.


What happens if my horse wins?
Connections of the winning horse will be invited to the podium for a photo, invited to watch a race replay and share a celebratory drink after the race. Please note that face coverings will be required within the Winners Enclosure, but can be removed for the photograph.
You will receive a photo of your horse, a USB replay and a race memento, or be given details of how to claim a personalised memento that will be sent on to you within a couple of days.


I am an ROA Member without a runner, can I still claim a badge?
ARC will offer a number of complimentary badges for ROA Members to access on a first come, first served basis for each fixture. Please see the Members section of the ROA website for more information on this.
