Press Release: 24.06.2020

Hamilton Park is delighted to get underway with racing behind closed doors today (24 June), and the Lanarkshire course, renowned for being at the forefront of developments in the industry, has announced that it will be the first racecourse in the UK to provide overnight accommodation for stable staff alongside essential workers for their meeting on Sunday 28 June.

In addition, the course will also provide overnight stabling for runners after receiving permission from the BHA to provide this facility from Saturday 27 June.

Vivien Currie MBE, Chief Executive at Hamilton Park said ‘We recognise that many Trainers have a distance to travel to Hamilton Park, and in these challenging times it’s a great step forward to be able to offer their staff both a comfortable overnight stay in our brand new onsite Hotel, together with stabling, to allow their horses to be in peak condition ahead of their run the following day.

The facility is also available for use by Trainers attending other Scottish courses in the coming weeks with bookings available now. To reserve rooms at the Hampton by Hilton Hamilton Park please contact Sharon Corrigan via email at ReservationsMgr@hbhhamiltonpark.com. Overnight stabling is bookable by emailing enquiries@hamilton-park.co.uk stating your bedding preference.
