We look forward to welcoming more owners for the full Worcester Racecourse experience as soon as it is safe to do so and thank you for your support.
Whilst British Racing continues to take place behind closed doors, we are very pleased that we will be in a position to welcome back six owners per entered horse for fixtures taking place from Monday 12th April.
During this time, owners will be able to enjoy a takeaway food option, which is permitted to be consumed inside as one household/support bubble whilst seated or outside, as either two households or a maximum group size of six. Alcohol will be available to be purchased via our app and consumed outside and whilst seated only.
Whilst we appreciate the experience will not be the usual one, we are working hard to expand our offering in line with government guidelines. All owners must register their attendance in advance and follow the code of conduct. Click below for the latest visiting advice from the Racehorse Owners Association:
Whilst horse racing takes place behind closed doors, the owners' experience at Worcester will be a bit different from what we've been able to offer in the past.
We hope that, as restrictions ease, we can provide you with the experience we pride ourselves on. In the meantime, thank you for your support.
Our racecourse is operating within the Government's latest advice. With guidelines and capacities for the sports' participants, owners and racegoers being updated regularly, not all facilities, catering outlets or bars will be in operation and your experience might be a little different. Please visit the news section of our website for the latest visitor information and information on what to expect.
As per recent government guidelines, all Owners attending Worcester Racecourse will be required to register for NHS's Track & Trace.
QR codes will be prominently displayed at the entrance to Worcester. Visitors will be able to use their smartphone to scan the code. This will link to the appropriate NHS site where they will be required to enter their details and receive relevant updates.
There is a designated Owners & Trainers area within the main Centre Course car park, please just ask a car park steward on arrival who will direct you. Parking is free of charge at all of our race days. If you are using a Sat Nav, the postcode for the racecourse car park is WR1 3EH.
We are currently able to offer owners with a declared runner up to two complimentary tickets to attend to watch their horse race at Worcester Racecourse.
We will of course accept requests for additional badges if we have the space to accommodate this in accordance with the reduced capacities currently allowed in our Owners facility.
All owners should request badges via the PASS system and must bring a copy of their identification with them.
Any specific name changes to your ticket allocation should be made on 01933 270 333 the day before racing, or by e-mail to email@example.com by 10am on the raceday. Your assistance is very much appreciated.
If you are experiencing any problems with the PASS System, please call the Weatherbys Helpline on 01933 270 333.
Outside of behind closed doors racing, Trainers can receive two complimentary guest tickets, a complimentary meal from the Croft Suite menu and unlimited complimentary tea and coffee. Whilst racing is taking place behind closed doors, trainers are only available to attend in an official capacity.
Our stables are located in a secure yard, with bed and breakfast accommodation provided nearby off course. All overnight stable bookings should be made no later than noon on the day prior to racing.
Please call 01905 253 64 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your request for overnight accommodation. Accommodation is limited to two people per horse.

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. During hot weather, Police and RSPCA officials reserve the right to force entry into any vehicle to release an animal if suffering. Your co-operation for the safety of the horses and jockeys, and the welfare of dogs is much appreciated.
At Worcester Racecourse we always want to raise awareness of the high standards for 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.
