Owners & Trainers

Badges & Passes

The Pass System will be operational with six badges allocated for sole ownership and partnerships or joint ownerships.

Badges will be issued to owners on production of their pass card.

If you require additional badges you can purchase up to 6 Owners & Trainers Badges at a reduced rate. Any additional badges over and above this will be Premier Enclosure Badges (there is no limit as to how many of these can be purchased).

When leaving badges from your allocation, for guests please ensure that they are aware that these must be collected from the Owners & Trainers Desk at the Owners & Trainers Entrance.

Due to the size of the owners and trainers facility only owners with a runner on the day will have access to the room.

If you are a member of the ROA badge scheme you will be issued with a Premier Enclosure Badge.


The Owners & Trainers Entrance provides easy access to the course and a direct walkway to the Owners & Trainers Bar.

The Owners & Trainers car park is well signposted from the road.

A Courtesy Bus service is available from Templecombe Station to the racecourse before racing and will take racegoers back to Templecombe Station 20 minutes after the last race. Information about local taxi services is also available from the racecourse office. For more information and for the timings of the bus service, please see the raceday calendar section of this website.
