There is also an Annual Badge Holders Bar which looks out onto the Premier Enclosure lawn.
Annual Badge Holders should access the Racecourse via the Premier Enclosure entrance in the Dalby Stand only. Unfortunately, we can no longer admit Annual Badge Holders through the Owners & Trainers Entrance.

The group will enjoy a ‘behind the scenes’ tour of the Racecourse before sitting down to a buffet lunch in the Dalby Stand and enjoying the afternoon’s racing and (hopefully) backing a few winners!
Go Racing in Yorkshire season ticket holders are permitted access to the Grandstand & Paddock Enclosure on every raceday in the Pontefract racing season.
