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.
We are delighted to welcome back owners to Newbury Racecourse and are pleased that, as part of the ongoing phased return of owners to racecourses in line with the Government guidance for elite sports grounds, we are now able to welcome three racehorse owners (or their representatives) to attend. We will also be making the following arrangements:
- Owners on course will have direct access to our dedicated ‘owners’ zone’ in the Owners Club adjacent to the pre-parade and parade ring so that you can see your horse.
- At this time, we will not be able to permit you entry into either the pre-parade or parade ring. However, there will be a debrief area so that you can talk to the trainer and/or jockey, if you wish to do so, which will be sign posted.
- Trackside viewing will be available in front of the Berkshire Stand, access to which will be from the walkway between the Berkshire Stand & Dubai Duty Free Grandstand. A buggy shuttle service will be available to take you which will be located on the north side of the parade ring and accessed via the horse crossing between the pre-parade and parade ring. We apologise for this slightly elongated journey but are working within strict protocols.
- Winning mementos have kindly been provided by our sponsor for every race. These will be presented to any winning owners present in front of the parade ring.
- We will provide a complimentary racecard and map of the owners’ zone on arrival.
Please remember to bring a form of ID, either driving licence, or passport – this is required for the COVID testing pod on entry.
CAR PARKING – free of charge and labels are not required, however we do have a reserved area for owners, trainers and jockeys displaying their ROA, trainers and jockeys car passes.
