Annual Badgeholders

Benefits of Annual Badgeholders

Important update regarding the cancellation of the May, June and July 2020 racedays, valid as at 9:30am on Tuesday 26th May.

With much regret, all eleven racedays scheduled for May, June and July 2020 have now been cancelled as part of the national response to the Coronavirus pandemic. This also affects the earlier reciprocal dates.Though this is disappointing news for Annual Badgeholders and all at York Racecourse, public health must be the priority.

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

As the situation for the wider Summer still remains unclear, currently  it is our intention to make a pro rata credit on 2021 subscriptions, that reflects the cancellation of racedays.

In line with Government advice, the York Racecourse Offices are currently closed, so we thank Members of the scheme for their patience and understanding.

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 a copy of the email update sent to all registered addresses on Tuesday 26th May click here.

We look forward to welcoming Annual Badgeholders, as well as the horses and their connections, as soon as it is advised as safe to do so.

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