Annual Badgeholders

Benefits of Annual Badgeholders

Please click here for the latest email in regards to September Sunday which was sent out on Wednesday 12 August.

Important update regarding the cancellation of the May, June July and now August 2020 racedays, valid as at 7pm on a Friday 31st July.

With much regret, all fifteen racedays scheduled for May, June July and now August 2020 have now been cancelled as spectator events as part of the national response to the Coronavirus pandemic. This also affects the majority of reciprocal dates. Both the Ebor Festival and these away days remain set to operate "behind closed doors".

The announcements by Government on Friday 31st July that slowed the pace of the easing of certain measures meant the cancellation of the Goodwood pilot and any other such events in the immediate weeks ahead. Given the statutory obligations to Public Health England and our Local Authority, we simply ran out of time to welcome even our closet supporters.

Though this is disappointing news for Annual Badgeholders and all at York Racecourse, public health must be the priority.

There looks to be some fascinating racing ahead so our broadcaster partners, ITV and Racing TV should serve up a feast. Your can watch as Ed, Francesca and the team cover five races each day on ITV1, with Racing TV offering all twenty-eight contests live. Do look out for your complimentary pass to follow all the action.

The free digital racecard will also be available on this website on the eve of each day.

Thank you for the support as Annual Badgeholders at this challenging time for racing as both a sport and major employer.

Please note that some Junior and special Badges were still due for posting at the time when "lockdown" closed the Office. The same would apply for most recent renewals. These will be distributed before they are needed.

For now, we wish everyone the very best of health.
