There are no further reductions for racegoers with a disability.
However, if a racegoer requires a carer, then the carer is admitted free of charge.
Our staff are aware that not all disabilities are visible – to avoid embarrassment, if you are a carer and have identification of this, please do bring it with you.
All of our member racecourses participate in the Sunflower Lanyard Scheme, a nationwide initiative for those with disabilities that may not be visible. A sunflower lanyard discretely signals to staff that the person wearing the lanyard may need additional support or a little more time when attending racedays.
Guests are welcome to bring their own lanyards or to register in advance by contacting the racecourse they’ll be attending. Sunflower lanyards can also be collected at certain entrance points. If you would like more information, please ask a member of staff.
Accompanied children under 18 are admitted free into EVERY enclosure on EVERY raceday.
