Despite our industry leaders making no decision on whether racing will go ahead post 1 May, we have taken the decision to refund all advanced bookings for these two race meetings. Realistically, it will take a miracle to allow us to race in front of a crowd at this time, and we will be following Government advice to ensure the safety and well being of not only our participants and customers, but also our local people and our brilliant NHS.
Refunds will be made shortly and please allow up to 10 days for the money to return to your source of payment.
We look forward to happier times, and in the meantime, stay safe, stay at home and stay positive.
At Beverley Racecourse the safety and welfare of our visitors, racegoers, participants and team is paramount. We are keeping up to date with the latest information and advice from the Government and the British Horseracing Authority and will be implementing all recommended actions.
The office and car park is closed so please don’t call in and we have only a skeleton staff in place, so the best way to get hold of us is to email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can; include your phone number if you’d like us to call you back.
The British Horseracing Authority announced on the 17th March 2020 that all racing is to be suspended until the end of April, which includes the cancellation of our meetings on the 15th April and 23rd April. You can see the statement in full here. There has been no further news since then.
The following may be questions you have;
Can I get a refund?
For all bookings for our cancelled meetings, including hospitality that were made directly with Beverley Racecourse, a full refund will be offered and will go directly back onto the card you booked with within 7-10 working days – you do not need to take any action. Customers who have purchased through third parties should contact that organisation.
Organisers of non raceday events are asked to contact the team to discuss their specific circumstances.
Where the Racecourse is the venue for an event but not the organiser, people are asked to contact that event organiser or to seek advice from where they purchased any tickets.
What happens after April?
For all racing bookings, including hospitality bookings that were made directly with Beverley Racecourse, a full refund would be offered in the event of cancellation. There will be the opportunity to carry a booking forward to later racedays. Customers who have purchased through third parties should contact that organisation.
What will happen if I’m an annual badge holder?
At present, horse racing is suspended until the end of April. Should race meetings be cancelled on a large scale, we will be proportionally refunding your annual badge fee. The situation is hopefully a one off, but we will not know the full picture for a while yet, and so I ask you to bear with us. Ensuring we are not endangering public health through any of our activities is our number one priority.
