Be prepared!

Auckland is currently under Alert Level 2 in the COVID-19 pandemic and therefore entry to next Wednesday’s race day is restricted. Both access to the course, and how we’ll be operating the race meeting, will be different to usual.  So Owners, Members, Sponsors and Invited Guests are permitted entry, however entry to the Public is NOT permitted.

The Government requirement is that we have no more than 100 people in a defined space. A defined space is required to have its own contact tracing and/or register of attendees, separate toilets and bar, and no shared facilities with other groups.


We recommend that you bring and wear a mask or face covering as per the Government’s recommendation, however this is not mandatory except in the Birdcage area.


All parking is to be in the Elm St Car Park. The gate opens at 10.30AM. (Ash Street gate will be closed.)


Members of the club / horse owners enter the racecourse grounds from Elm Street [our horse float entrance will be open to horse transporters] and from the car park proceed on foot to the checkpoint that will be sign posted.

Please note that you will not be able to enter the racecourse via another entrance due to the need for us to control entry points.

At our checkpoint at the members’ car park slider, you will need to use the COVID QR Tracer app or complete the written form with your name, contact details and signature.


Members and owners attending the race meeting have been allocated to one room for the day, and must present themselves at this designated area:
– Members floor (level 2) in the members stand – access by lift OR by stairs thru open stand

Members are asked to have with you your Member’s, or Member’s Guest, Badge.  You will be issued with an ORANGE swinger at the entrance to the members’ floor.  In the lounge and bar food and drink will be available.

Owners are asked to use the same area as members [one ORANGE swinger per owner or owner’s guest].

The room limit of 100 will be strictly enforced.

For trainers, trainers’ staff and industry connections in attendance, the first floor of the Marshall Stand is their designated area.  Those using this area will require a BLUE swinger from the checkpoint.

The room limit of 100 will be strictly enforced.


Please follow the signage in use on the day and maintain social distancing measures as you make your way to your allocated room and when in your room.

Please note:
• Members, owners, industry participants are required to co-operate with contact tracing processes
• Each person using the designated areas must be seated at a table
• Tables have a 10 person maximum;  and 1 metre physical distancing will apply


Should members or horse owners have any queries about this circular, please contact Richard Pridham, mobile 027 537 2990.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you next Wednesday.
