Owners' Car Parking
Newly resurfaced for 2016, the dedicated Owners Car-park is well signed as you approach the racecourse. It is directly next to the Owners' Entrance. If you or any of your guests have mobility issues, and require preferential parking, please give us a call beforehand, and we will happily organise this for you.
We operate the PASS System and allocate badges as per the Yorkshire Racecourse Policy. Please present your PASS Card to Margaret at the Owners & Trainers entrance, just off the car park. Each horse declared at the overnight stage is entitled to 6 complimentary Owners’ badges. We are happy to be flexible, within reason, on badge arrangements that are agreed with the Racecourse Office in advance of the meeting and extra badges can be purchased at a reduced price of £15. Special provisions cannot be made at the gate.
On Journal Ladies’ Day, the badge allocation remains as above and you can buy additional badges at £16 each. Due to the capacity limits set on the enclosures, no horse can be issued with more than 10 Owners and Trainers badges on this particular day.
The roomy and comfortable Owners and Trainers Lounge has a fully stocked bar to help you enjoy your day with us! New for 2016 – locally sourced, hot roast rolls will be available as a complimentary offering for owners in the Owners and Trainers Suite. Six vouchers will be given on arrival per horse. If you are a group ownership and are arriving separately, the vouchers will be given to the first member of your party to arrive, for them to distribute. We very much hope you enjoy this, and it will be served alongside complimentary tea and coffee.
New for 2016 - the Attraction Restaurant has been fully refurbished and enlarged. If you would like to reserve a table, please call Sarah Duff on 01482 867488. Owners can also take advantage of the private viewing pen on the Premier Enclosure Grandstand.
The delightful Lorna Harrison will be on hand at all of our racedays to assist owners with runners on the day. Based between the Owners' Suite and the Winning Owners' VIP Room, Lorna will happily answer any queries you might have. Lorna is an experienced horsewoman, and is also excellent at booking taxis or pointing you in the right direction if you require some recommendations of places to visit in the local area!
Our raceday photographer for 2016 is Steve Wall - you can view his website at www.stevewallequestrianphotography.co.uk or contact him on 07817544534. Photographs will be available for purchase within 12 hours of racing via Steve's website.
