C-19 Badges

Redcar 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.

 

Owners on course will have access to a dedicated ‘Owners Zone’, which is located around the Paddock Suite. The Paddock Suite Bar has views over the course, and the balconies on the first floor overlook the parade ring, track and the relocated Winners’ position.  Owners can access the parade ring rails and viewing steppings by the Finishing post.  The Malton & Middleham Bars on the middle floor of the Petch Stand (no lift access)  provide undercover seating & TV viewing.

Owners can view the race live from the Petch Stand steppings, from the Paddock Suite balcony, or trackside viewing area directly outside the Paddock Suite. The race can also be viewed via the big screen and TVs in the Paddock Suite, Malton & Middleham Bars.

The Paddock Suite balcony overlooks the Parade Ring, owners have access to the perimeter railing of the Parade Ring, and there is a designated  ‘debrief’ area between the Paddock Suite and Parade Ring.

A complimentary selection of pre-packaged sandwiches, salad boxes, cakes, snacks and tea & coffee are available from the Paddock Suite Bar. A paid bar (contactless preferred) is also available for owners in the Paddock Suite and Malton bars.

Updated details of the covid-19 owners’ experience are available on our website - https://www.redcarracing.co.uk/owners-and-trainers/

News

We would like to thank all owners for their incredible support of racing ‘Behind Closed Doors’ over the past few weeks.

Our thoughts remain with those grieving and suffering as a result of COVID-19 and we offer a sincere thanks to the country’s incredible NHS staff, key workers and volunteers for their selfless dedication and hard work at this continuing time of national challenge.

We thank you for your assistance in advance by supporting the measures in place.  As you will appreciate this is an evolving landscape and hopefully as cases continue to fall, we can look forward to a more integrated raceday experience, which we would like to achieve at the earliest opportunity.  

Q.        Where do I park?

A.        The Owners' car park and entrance is located via the Main Entrance, off Redcar Lane.  The postcode for SatNavs is TS10 2FD.   On arrival at the Main Entrance please follow the directional signage to the Owners' car park and entrance. 

Q.        What do I need to bring with me on raceday?

A.        Please make sure you arrive at the racecourse with your: 

  • Photographic ID (a copy on your phone is acceptable) – you will require this to gain entry to the racecourse. 
  • Your RCA PASScard - if you have been allocated one as a registered owner. 
  • You may also wish to consider bringing your own alcohol-based hand sanitiser and a face covering. 

Q.        What will happen if I arrive and my name is not on the list?

A.        The racecourse staff will be able to assist you on the day, however, please be prepared to assist the team by stepping away from the designated entrance to enable other owners to continue safely whilst the team and yourselves resolve the matter.  

You may be required to contact the PASS Helpdesk on 01933 270333 to enable your details to be updated to the raceday list.

Q.        What if my horse is a non-runner on the day?

A.        Only owners who have registered their attendance using the RCA’s PASS system should travel to the racecourse. If a horse is declared a non-runner the attached owners should not attend the fixture. 

Q.        What will happen when I arrive at the racecourse?

A.        Step 1: On arrival at the racecourse you will be asked for your details and valid ID.

            Step 2: You will be asked a series of three questions relating to your current health on the day

            Step 3: A temperature check will be taken. Your temperature will be taken twice in quick succession, with the lower reading recorded.

Q.        What will happen if I fail the temperature check when I arrive?

A.        Your temperature will be taken twice in quick succession, with the lower reading recorded. If on both occasions this temperature exceeds 37.8°C, owners will not be granted access to the racecourse and will be advised to travel home.  

Owners are reminded that if any member of the same vehicle fails to clear the entry screening process all those travelling together will be denied entry onto the racecourse.

Q.        I failed my temperature test when I arrived at the racecourse and couldn’t attend – when can I next visit a racecourse with a declared runner?

A.        Any individual that fails the on-course screening will be required to either:

  •  provide evidence of a negative Covid-19 test, which can be booked on the NHS website
  •  or complete a minimum of 7 days of isolation depending on advice received from NHS.

On the racecourse & the Owners’ Zone

Q.        What areas of the racecourse will I be able to access?

A.        Owners on course will have access to a dedicated ‘Owners Zone’, which is located around the Paddock Suite. The Paddock Suite Bar has views over the course, and the balconies on the first floor overlook the parade ring, track and the relocated Winners’ position.  Owners can access the parade ring rails and viewing steppings by the Finishing post.  The Malton & Middleham Bars on the middle floor of the Petch Stand (no lift access)  provide undercover seating & TV viewing.

Owners can view the race live from the Petch Stand steppings, from the Paddock Suite balcony, or trackside viewing area directly outside the Paddock Suite. The race can also be viewed via the big screen and TVs in the Paddock Suite, Malton & Middleham Bars.

Please note, the area that would normally be used as the Owners & Trainers Bar is NOT in use.

BHA instructions are that Owners are unfortunately not able to access to the Parade Ring. However Paddock Suite balcony overlooks the Parade Ring, owners have access to the perimeter railing of the Parade Ring, and there is a designated  ‘debrief’ area between the Paddock Suite and Parade Ring.

Q.        Why can owners and raceday workers not interact on raceday?

A.        To mitigate the risk of the transmitting COVID-19, owners on course will have access to a dedicated owner zone based around the Paddock Suite, which is separated from raceday workers (trainers, stable staff, jockeys, officials, media etc.). For infection control purposes, no movement will be permitted between the two areas of the racecourse.

This approach, supported by government, also means that there would be currently no need to revise other elements of the screening program such as by introducing laboratory testing for all racecourse attendees. 

Q.        Will there be food and drink available on the day?

A.        In line with UK Government stage 3 guidance we are unable to provide the normal buffet lunch for Owners. However a complimentary selection of pre-packaged sandwiches, salad boxes, cakes and tea & coffee are available from the Paddock Suite Bar. A paid bar (contactless preferred) is also available for owners in the Paddock Suite and Malton bars.

Q.        Will there be presentations on the racecourse?

A.        Not at this stage of the proposal, therefore the current arrangements for distributing prizes to the winning and placed connections will continue unchanged.

Q.        Do I have to wear PPE/Facemasks?

A.        At present, in line with Government Guidance, face coverings are not mandatory for owners when outside on racecourses when 2 metre Social Distancing is possible.  All owners and guests should continue to observe social distancing guidelines and wear face coverings on arrival at the racecourse and when indoors (if not eating or drinking).

Q.        How do I leave the racecourse after my horse has run?

A.        A one-way system is in place, so owners can return to their vehicle without crossing paths with others and hand hygiene stations will be provided on exit.  Upon leaving the racecourse, badges for the raceday should be removed by the owner and should not be retained for future use.
