Over the weekend, we have taken the upsetting decision to cancel Ladies Day 2020 that was due to be staged on Wednesday 12 August. The ongoing Covid19 crisis means that mass gatherings are unlikely to be permitted by that time. Although horse racing is currently permitted, it is behind closed doors with strict rules surrounding participation. It was not a decision taken lightly, and we know that it will come as a blow to many of you who consider it a highlight of the summer.
We will be issuing automatic refunds over the coming weeks to those who have pre-booked tickets and hospitality. You do not need to contact us.
Even if we are allowed a few people in come August, it just could not be the Ladies Day that we know and love, and would not be fair on those who have purchased tickets with high expectations.
Needless to say, we will make Ladies Day 2021 one to remember.
