UPDATED INFORMATION FOR OWNERS - From Friday 13 August 2021
We are pleased that alongside the much welcomed return of spectators to Hamilton Park we are able to return our Owners & Trainers ticket allocations and experience to the same level as they were before the coronavirus pandemic.
To enable us to ensure that all of the appropriate arrangements are in place, minimise risk for owners and prioritise the safety and wellbeing of all attendees you must provide us with the details of those who will be attending by no later than 10.00am on the day of the race meeting. The quickest and easiest way for you to do this is via the Racecourse PASS System https://www.rcapass.com. A simple step-by-step guide to using the system is available from the RCA Website. If you do not have access to the PASS System or need any assistance in its use, please contact the PASS Helpdesk on 01933 270333 or email@example.com
On arrival at Hamilton Park, please enter the racecourse via Dukes Entrance Gate where you will be directed to the Dukes Car Park. Please display your ROA parking pass on arrival. Once parked, you will be directed to the dedicated Owners & Trainers Bar which is situated next to Dukes Entrance. A member of our Senior Management team will be on hand to register your attendance via the PASS system, and then you will be issued with your ticket for the day.
We are pleased to be able to re-open the Owners & Trainers Bar which is available for your use alongside a reserved outdoor seating area. In addition, we will continue to provide your meal service and additional bar facilities at The Hill suite situated at the rear of the grandstand.
All owners and guests should continue to follow the latest Scottish Government Covid-19 guidance and as such it is mandatory for everyone to wear face coverings on the racecourse whilst moving around indoors (ie no mask are required whilst seated, eating or drinking)
Each Owner (or group of Owners) or Trainer with a declared runner will receive two vouchers at the Owners & Trainers Bar on arrival which entitles you to two, complimentary, two-course meals within The Hill. Please note that to accommodate all Owners, you may be required to leave your table after dining, and meal service will finish after the fourth race.
A bar service is available with contactless payment encouraged wherever possible.
