If successful, Members are not allowed to enter the pre-parade ring area and only people that have been allocated an ‘owners’ badge’ will be given access into the parade ring and for that particular race only. In the event that the horse is not placed in the first four, it will return to the un-saddling enclosure for a post race analysis. Members are not allowed in this area, and feed back will be given on the Members page of the website, usually within 24 hours of the race. Persons entering any area of the racecourse on an unauthorised basis may be reported to the Stewards and this could result in a racecourse ban. Badges are not to be sold or transferred under any circumstances.

  • Members must abide by the relevant dress code of the racecourses which can vary between racecourses and enclosures, and members should check with the individual racecourse. Any member who fails to comply with any racecourse rule or acts in an inappropriate manner which could lead to embarrassment, or cause harassment, offence or distress to another person, or are warned due to the abuse of alcohol, may have their Membership revoked with immediate effect and no refund will be given. The decision of the Club Manager will be final and binding.
