For health and safety reasons, we ask that you respect the rule which states under 12’s are not permitted in the Parade Ring. 
Please note that it is our policy not to allow dogs (with the exception of guide dogs) on the racecourse during racing.

Your co-operation for the safety of the horses and jockeys, and the welfare of dogs is much appreciated. 

The Horse Comes First Campaign

At Worcester Racecourse we always want to raise awareness of the high standards fo equine welfare in horseracing. The Horse Comes First campaign aims to improve the understanding of the care given to horses throughout and after their racing careers. 

It is the first priority of all those involved in the sport because without the horses there would not be a sport to enjoy. The Horse Comes First campaign is an industry-wide initiative that aims to demonstrate to the public that the horseracing industry never stops striving for welfare improvements, including after the horses have retired. 


We hope that any queries you may have are answered in this section. However, please do not hesitate to contact us on 01905 25364 if we can be of further assistance to you both prior to and during your visit.
