For those in the industry.

Owners & Trainers

We are very pleased that, with the relaxation of restrictions in place from Monday 17 May, we will be in a position to offer further improvements to the Owners raceday experience. 

All owners that declare a horse to run at an ARC racecourse will receive a letter from the racecourse with full details of how to claim your badges and what to expect when you join us to watch your horse run. 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. 

We look forward to welcoming you back to Worcester Racecourse and thank you for your support.
