UPDATED INFORMATION FOR OWNERS - From Wednesday 26 May 2021
Owners are guaranteed a warm welcome at Hamilton Park despite any restrictions that may be in place at the time of your visit.
With over £1 million of prize money on offer in 2021 across 18 fixtures, Hamilton Park strives to impress you at every turn. From our dedicated facilities for Owners to our smiling and friendly staff, we want to make Hamilton Park a place you will return to again and again.
Hamilton Park is proud to be a holder of the Racehorse Owners’ Association Gold Standard, an accolade it has held consistently since 2008.
Whilst we are operating with restrictions, our Owners’ facilities will be located in The Hill on the ground floor of the grandstand which includes an indoor bar and food provision as well as an outdoor seated area overlooking the lawns for your enjoyment when the weather is fine.
Access to the course will be via the main turnstiles where Fiona Murdoch and her team will welcome you and answer any queries you may have about your day.
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 4pm on the day before the race meeting.
All owners and guests should continue to observe social distancing guidelines and it is mandatory for everyone to wear face coverings on the racecourse whilst moving around indoors (ie if not seated, eating or drinking) and within the Parade Ring unless you are medically exempt (verification by a healthcare professional may be required)
Each Owner (or group of Owners) or Trainer with a declared runner will receive two vouchers at the turnstiles 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 whilst you are seated, with contactless payment encouraged wherever possible.
Owners & Trainers with Runners
Hamilton Park operates the PASS System and encourages all Owners & Trainers to arrange their tickets via the online PASS concierge service or by contacting Fiona Murdoch at the racecourse directly on 07932 024995 once your horse is declared.
Sole Owner – entitled to 4 ‘Owner & Trainer’* admission tickets
Syndicates/Partnerships/Racing Groups/Companies – entitled to 6 ‘Owner & Trainer’* admission tickets
*NB: For safety reasons, only Owner & Trainer admission tickets allow access to the exclusive Owner & Trainer facilities on course including the Parade Ring (subject to the restrictions below).
Owners must not pass their unused badges to owners without horses competing that day or to other individuals
PARADE RING AND WINNERS ENCLOSURE ACCESS:
Due to the size of the Parade Ring and its maximum approved capacity, access will be limited to a maximum of 4 representatives per runner, subject to field sizes. This will be strictly controlled by our stewarding team.
Only the winning connections (limited amount in accordance with social distancing guidelines) will be invited into the Winners Enclosure after the race, again due to capacity restrictions. Where possible a presentation and souvenir picture will be taken.
Please note that face masks must be worn at all times in the Parade Ring and Winners Enclosure, and failure to do so will result in access being denied.
We look forward to welcoming you to Hamilton Park, but if you require any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
RACEDAY AT HOME
For those of you unable to attend on the day you will be able to download a copy of our racecard which will be sent to you by Weatherbys. If your horse should win we will endeavour to send a digital memento and winning photograph to you either directly or via your trainer. Our raceday photographer will be capturing images of every horse running and can be viewed at www.grossick.co.uk
