COVID 19 - Racecourse Q & A


04 June 2020

I have booked for a horse racing fixture in and racing has been cancelled or will be hosted behind closed doors. What do I do? 

You can transfer your booking to an alternative date for later in the year or we can process a full refund for you. 

You need to email with your booking reference number and full name, indicating whether you would like a full refund or transfer; indicating the fixture date that you’d like to transfer to. 

I have booked for a racing fixture later in the 2020 season – can I have a refund?

Currently, a new fixture list is in place for British Racing for June, July and August. We will of course be communicating to our customers if this changes. Although no refunds are currently being offered for fixtures taking place from August on-wards as these fixtures are currently still going ahead, we would be happy to transfer your booking to another date later in the year.  

You need to email with your booking reference number and full name, indicating the fixture date that you’d like to transfer to.

I have booked a non-racing related event in 2020?  Has this been cancelled? 

No, this event has not been automatically cancelled, although we would encourage you to contact us to discuss your event. 

We are very happy to transfer or reschedule your event to later in the year. 

Can you please confirm your policy on refunds if either of our events are cancelled due to Coronavirus 

If any additional racing fixtures are cancelled, or run behind closed doors due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all customers will be able to receive either a full refund or be able to transfer their booking to an alternative date later in the season.    

Will your horse racing fixtures and Music Live events after the end of August still go ahead? 

Currently, the British Horseracing Authority have updated the fixture list to be run behind closed doors until the end of August.

All other 2020 fixtures at this stage are currently going ahead as normal and are open to the public. We are, of course, continually monitoring this situation and will be in touch with our customers if this changes.

You should have received an update directly from the racecourse regarding your Annual Membership or Box.
