C-19 Badge Allocation

 

Under normal circumstances, the following applies:

The number of owners allowed to attend per horse in Wales is two.

The impact of the coronavirus pandemic has affected the owners experience, particularly in Wales.
 
In summary, Welsh Government regulations allow gatherings of up to 30 people for the same purpose but it has to be outside. We are therefore having to limit the number of owners who can attend to two people. Owners should arrive 30 minutes before their horse is scheduled to run and leave no more than 30 minutes after the race. This minimises the risk of the racecourse reaching the 30 person limit.  We are in regular contact with Welsh Government, along with BHA, and will continue to make the case to allow more owners to attend fixtures in Wales.

Owners who live in a local lockdown area in Wales are not allowed to attend and owners living in a local lockdown area England need to adhere to the advice given by their local authority. 

We advise that you bring evidence of your home address. Strict protocols will be in place to ensure the health and wellbeing of all owners. 

Face masks are required on arrival only, and all attendees will be required to utilise the NHS Track and Trace QR code at the racecourse entrance. We will, of course, ensure indoor toilet facilities are available.  
 

News

As part of owners returning the Welsh Government regulations limit the number of owners able to attend to a total of 30 across the entire race day.  In addition, these owners must be located outside. Internal toilets are, of course, available.

In order to manage this as fairly as possible, owners will be allocated badges on a first come, first served basis.   

To assist us in logging the received enquiries correctly owners will not be able to book badges via PASS but must e-mail Lucy Newman:

lnewman@arenaracingcompany.co.uk

We are allowing a maximum of two badges per horse.  The badges will then be allocated on to the PASS system and will be available for owners to print off at home. If you could please provide your name(s), postcode and PASS number(s) in your email that would be much appreciated and will enable us to allocate the badges accordingly.

Unfortunately, owners from England are not currently permitted to attend Welsh racecourses unless it is undertaken for specific business/work purposes. When requesting badges, please outline the business need relating to your attendance for work purposes.   

Once the allocation of 30 badges has been reached, we will be unable take anymore bookings. 

Owners will not be restricted in terms of time spent on the racecourse, however in line with the revised rules in England, no food or alcohol will be available. Hot and cold drinks will be available and there will be a big screen to enhance viewing for owners.

Face coverings must be worn at all times and temperature checks will take place on entry.

Owners will be based in the ‘amber’ zone and will directed to this area on arrival in the main car park.

 

Winning owners will have a photo taken with their horse and there will be area where owners can have a de-brief with their jockey and trainer.  Winning owners will also have a memento, a copy of the race on a memory stick and a framed photograph sent to them a few days after the fixture.

All owners should use the new NHS Covid 19 App when visiting Chepstow. There will be a QR code on display at the entrance.

We are in constant communication with the Welsh Government regarding potential improvements to these rules and the team at Chepstow would like to thank owners for their understanding and continued support in these difficult circumstances.

Please be aware that the following requirements are also in place to allow us to provide entry, full details of which are available from the Return to Racecourse Guide for Owners (Insert link), and a summary is provided below

  • All owners will need to complete a two-stage screening process. This includes the BHA's Covid19 online learning module www.roa.co.uk/raceday/covid19/return/elearning.html health questions  and a temperature check on arrival at the racecourse.
  • All owners, guests and representatives must bring Photo ID with them to the racecourse. It is not essential to bring your PASS Card.
  • For infection control purposes, no movement will be permitted between the ‘green’ and ‘amber’ areas of the racecourse.
