If you're looking for a winner in the paddock then a few things to watch out for might include:
Well-toned muscle and just a hint of rib showing is a sign that the horse is in peak physical condition; as with most human runners, sprinters tends to carry a little more muscle (and have quite big backsides!) compared to a horse that runs over longer distances, so bear that in mind.
Advance booking is recommended for all fixtures and saves you money. It is cheaper to book in advance, online than purchasing at the gate. Tickets may be purchased on the day of the fixture. Pukka Package and Hospitality packages do require advance booking. Online bookings for the event can be made until the day before the race. On the day, gates open 2 hours before the first race.
Our venue is accessible to all guests and we make every effort to ensure our guests with disabilities are accommodated to ensure a memorable and fun experience.
If you are a disabled visitor and require a carer to attend the event with you, it may be possible to claim a discounted or complimentary ticket for the carer. This can differ for each fixture and/or event, so please check with the sales advisor when you make your booking. They may ask questions to ascertain the nature of your disability to ensure you are offered the best possible seating and eligibility for a carer ticket.
Please inform us at the time of booking if you need a wheelchair space or have any special requirements, so that we can ensure this is taken care of before you arrive.
