If someone is found to be Covid positive, will everyone on the racecourse be asked to self-isolate?

Should an individual subsequently test positive for Covid-19 having attended a race meeting, the venue will be issued with a recommendation notice to be tested. This means that if you checked in, you will be encouraged to take a test as soon as possible. You will only be asked to self-isolate if this test proves to be positive.

If you were a close contact with the individual who tested positive, you will be contacted by Track & Trace and asked to self-isolate as per Government guidance.

We will continue to provide copious opportunity for racegoers to sanitise their hands, with alcoholic hand gel stations and wash basin facilities provided.

Yes! Online tickets remain open during each fixture and can be used to purchase tickets on the day of racing. You can also buy a ticket on the gate. 

 

Will the raceday experience be as it was pre-Covid?

We have been working hard alongside the Government, local health authorities and safety groups to safely allow racegoers to return. With the removal of all remaining legal requirements, we are confident that racegoers will enjoy a familiar environment with all of the usual elements that are loved about a raceday: seeing elite thoroughbred racehorses and elite athletes, fantastic food & beverage choices and a variety of betting options. We ask that racegoers remain considerate of their fellow racegoers and respect the environment that they are in for the enjoyment and safety of all on course.
