The Owners & Trainers Car Park is located in the centre of the Park.
There are directional signs once you enter Pontefract Park and there are dedicated Car Parking Stewards for the Owners & Trainers Car Park.
The Owners & Trainers Entrance is adjacent to the Car Park in the centre of the Course.
The Entrance Building was renovated in 2014 to provide a modern, state of the art building, replacing the Portakabin that had served it's time!
Our dedicated PASS team, headed by Sue and Andy Sheppard, will be on hand at the entrance to make sure that you have everything you need.
Andy & Sue Sheppard will run the PASS entrance and will be on hand at every race meeting.
Polly Rodgers will also be at every meeting in 2018. As our Owners & Trainers Liaison, she is there to make sure you have everything you need. From booking a taxi, to organising a place in our restaurant, Polly will be able to make sure that your day at Pontefract is as enjoyable as possible.
There is a dedicated Owners & Trainers Bar on the ground floor of the Park Suite.
The bar is well signposted and serves complimentary tea, coffee and light refreshments. Owners with runners will also get a hot roast roll from the carvery in the Bar.
If you would like to reserve a table in one of our restaurants, then we have a number of tables reserved until 10am on the morning of each raceday. The Park Suite and the Premier Dining Room both serve excellent meals throughout the day.
The Park Suite can be booked online here.
We also have Raceday Private Facilities (subject to availability) - full details can be found by clicking here.
Although there is a step free access through the Owners & Trainers Entrance, this is on the far side of the course from the Stands and access necessitates crossing the course. There is a fairly steep grass pathway up to the Stands. It is recommended that Owners and Trainers with access needs do NOT follow the signs to the Owners and Trainers Car Park. Instead they should follow the signs to the “Annual Badge Holders” Car Park and then continue straight towards the Stands where there is a dedicated staffed parking area for “BLUE BADGE” holders. This is adjacent to the Main Entrance to the Premier Enclosure on the ground floor of the Dalby Stand.
It is helpful if owners or trainers wishing to enter via this route can telephone the Racecourse on 01977 781307. We can then arrange for a parking space to be reserved for you and also arrange for your Owners Badges to be waiting for you at this entrance.
A full accessibility statement can be found here.
Pontefract has signed the Premier Tier Prize Money Agreement and will continue to provide the best prize money it possibly can.
In 2018, no race will be worth less than £6,000 and we will have a total prize fund over over £1.3million. Five race meetings in 2018, including each Sunday fixture, will also have guaranteed prize money in excess of £100,000.
We are striving to improve all our facilities for Owners & Trainers but if you feel that there is part of our service missing, then please do let us know and we will do our very best to rectify it.
