Important Information – Resumption of Racing and July Raceday Cancellations
Updated 29 May 2020
Following the latest Scottish Racing and BHA update regarding the resumption of racing in Scotland, our new provisional fixtures scheduled for June and July, which are subject to approval from the Scottish Government, will take place behind closed doors with no public in attendance. Our provisional fixtures are now as follows;
- Wednesday 24 June (a)
- Sunday 28 June (a)
- Friday 3 July (a)
- Sunday 12 July (a)
- Thursday 16 July (a)
Our fixtures in August, including Boe Violet Gin Ladies’ Night and Ladbrokes Lanark Silver Bell Night, are still several months away, and therefore any bookings made for these meetings are still valid.
Our provisional fixtures for August are as follows;
- Saturday 1 August (e) – Boe Violet Gin Ladies’ Night
- Friday 7 August (e)
- Thursday 13 August (a)
- Friday 28 August (e) – Ladbrokes Lanark Silver Bell Racenight
We will continue to be guided by the industry and government guidance for these fixtures and will provide updates as they become available.
Whilst we are naturally pleased to be moving towards a resumption of racing, our entire team continues to share in the disappointment felt by everyone; racegoers, Owners, Annual Members and our valued partners, who had planned to join us this summer.
Given the unprecedented circumstances we are all facing at present, we’d like to ask our customers to maintain their support for Hamilton Park, as we, like so many businesses, face the incredible economic challenges that are ahead of us.
For customers who have purchased tickets or hospitality for any raceday that is cancelled due to Covid-19, we are offering a direct ticket transfer to the equivalent 2021 fixture or an alternative 2021 fixture of their choice.
We understand that not everyone will be in a position to offer us this much needed support, in which case we will honour a full refund within 28 days of the raceday as per our terms and conditions.
We will contact ticket holders via email in the coming weeks with information on how to process your choice, and the small team that are still working will strive to make refunds within 28 days from the cancelled event.
If you have booked hospitality, a member of our team will be in touch as soon as possible however this may not be the team member you have been dealing with previously.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their continued support during these difficult times. Stay safe everyone, and please make sure you all follow the Government advice we are all being given.
