With areas of the country experiencing different restrictions, dependent on the government's tiered approach to combat Covid-19 transmissions, we ask all owners to check our news page where the latest information on any enhanced measures at Doncaster Racecourse will be available.
Unfortunately owners will not be permitted to attend meetings for which they have a runner at Doncaster Racecourse. Please visit the news section for the latest information.
Doncaster Racecourse is pleased to be able to welcome back owners. To maintain social distancing, owners can currently receive four complimentary badges to watch their horse run.
Owners are requested to request badges via the PASS system. Please refer to the information from the ROA and the RCA regarding this and the transfer of badges prior to the race day.
It has been brought to our attention that a small number of owners, trainers and their representatives have sold/given their badges to ticket touts that operate outside the Racecourse. Anybody found to be selling/giving their Owners and Trainers badge allocation to ticket touts will be refused entry to the Racecourse and reported to the Racehorse Owners Association and the National Trainers Federation.
Please note that in an effort to reduce fraudulent badge requests, we ask that Owners follow one of the procedures below when applying:
Please Note: Only the person whose badges are being used can leave them, for example the Owner must get in touch to leave their badges for guests. The Trainer cannot leave the owners allocation for guests, the owner must do this themselves and vice versa.
Car Park ‘A’ is located directly opposite the main stand and is the dedicated car park for owners. Please find enclosed car park pass. Please ensure that the pass is forwarded on to all connections as we are unable to refund any parking charges.
Please enter through the main entrance to the Lazarus stand, as per the BHA guidance, we can welcome up to an hour advance of your horse race taking place.
Upon entry, your temperature will be taken and recorded. Should you exhibit a temperature higher than 37.8, we will unfortunately have to request you leave the race course.
Owners & Trainers Facility
We are delighted to welcome back owners with runners into the Conduit suite for the duration of the race day where they will be provided with a complimentary takeaway light lunch. A range of hot and cold non-alcoholic drinks are now available for owners to purchase during their visit. Alcohol is unable to be served currently.
Access to the parade from the suite is down the steppings with a one-way system in operation and directional signage to guide you to the amber zone by the parade ring. Alongside the Parade Ring is a connections meeting point allowing you to meet with your trainer and jockey, if required.
Please be mindful of the social distancing guidelines and we respectfully request you follow the 2m rule when both in and outside the racecourse. Whilst you and your guests may belong to the same household, the viewing public at home will be unaware of this, and in order to protect the integrity of racing behind closed doors, we ask that all guests and staff on the course respect the 2m distancing.
As per recent government guidelines, all Owners attending Doncaster Racecourse will be required to register for NHS's Track & Trace.
QR codes will be prominently displayed at the entrance to Doncaster. Visitors will be able to use their smartphone to scan the code. This will link to the appropriate NHS site where they will be required to enter their details and receive relevant updates.
