There is also an Annual Badge Holders Bar which looks out on to the Premier Enclosure lawn.

VIP Day Out

Following the success of the Annual Badge Holders VIP Day out in previous years, we will be repeating the day on Monday 1st July 2019.

We will be taking a group of Annual Badge Holders for a tour of John Quinn's stable before bringing them back for racing at Pontefract. 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! The menu for the lunch can be viewed here.

Numbers are strictly limited but if you'd like to be considered for this trip, then please complete the tear off form on the flyer which will be sent out with your 2019 Annual Badge and return to us before Monday 3rd June 2019.

50 badge holders will be chosen at random and notified on or around Monday 17th June.
