Owners & Trainers Facilities

Owners & Trainers Car Park

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.

Owners & Trainers Entrance

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.

Owners & Trainers Staff

Andy & Sue Sheppard will run the PASS entrance and will be on hand at every race meeting.

Diane Rush will also be at every meeting in 2020. 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, Diane will be able to make sure that your day at Pontefract is as enjoyable as possible.

Owners & Trainers Facility

The Owners and Trainers bar and restaurant (on the ground floor of the Park Suite) was refurbished ahead of the 2020 season. 

The new facility is well signposted and serves complimentary tea, coffee and light refreshments. 

In addition, there is a new menu for Owners and Trainers. Owners with runners are entitled to up 6 luncheon vouchers which can be collected at the Owners and Trainers entrance on arrival. These can be redeemed in the Owners & Trainers Facility or, alternatively, can be used to deduct £10 from your bill in any of the Racecourse restaurants.

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.

We would recommended that Owners and Trainers with specific accessibility requirements 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 on 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. 

Please could owners or trainers wishing to enter via the Racecourse at this entrance please 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.


If you need any further information then do feel free to contact us on 01977 781307 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

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.
