Arriving at the Racecourse
Please be aware that we are currently operating heightened security measures at all our race meetings.
This means that there will be more extensive bag and physical search procedures for everyone at all our entrances, which may include search dogs. You may also notice a stronger security presence throughout the site and the vicinity.
This may mean that access to the racecourse might take longer than you expect. Please be prepared for this and allow sufficient time extra time. Please also bear in mind that if you exit at any stage, you will need to pass through security to re-enter. We also ask that you do not bring unnecessary bags or luggage into the racecourse.
We hope that these measures do not cause you or your guests too much inconvenience and ask for your understanding, patience and cooperation.
