Owners & Trainers

A warm welcome to Haydock Park

We hope that any queries you have are answered in this section and are relevant to you, but we are more than happy to furnish you with any other information you may require.

Haydock Park Racecourse is indebted to the support it receives from the racing professionals – from owners and trainers who bring their horses to Haydock to the press and other media supporters who report on our racedays.

Owners and Trainers Facility

For the Flat Season the Owners and Trainers Bar, situated adjacent to the parade ring, provides an exclusive facility for connections of the runners at each meeting. Within this facility there will be lunch provided, a pay bar and tea and coffee available.

Paddock Pavilion

For use during the Jump season, this new improved facility (sponsored by Brown Shipley) is located next to the Weighing Room, and owners can reserve up to a maximum of four places per runner and two places for the trainer. Within this facility you will be offered a complimentary lunch. Tables will be for 10, so you may be sharing with the owner and trainer of another horse (we will be very happy to seat groups together if requested in advance), and your place will be reserved for the day. There is also the facility to request a replay of any of the races that take place at Haydock Park on the day. Please note that these lunch places are strictly non-transferable and can only be used by the registered owner or trainer.

So that we know how many people to expect on the day, reserved places in the Paddock Pavilion must be booked by 3pm the day before racing by calling Catherine Smith on 01942 402609.

We regret the necessity of having to restrict the number of places per runner to four owners due to space, but if demand on the Paddock Pavilion is lower than expected on a particular day, we will be happy to make extra spaces available. However, this will only be considered in advance of the meeting. There will be a charge of £20.00 plus VAT per head for any additional places.

We are delighted to announce that Brown Shipley is the inaugural sponsor of our Owners & Trainers’ Pavilion. Brown Shipley’s roots are in the North West. The bank started in Liverpool over 200 years ago and today they have substantial offices in the Spinningfields area of Manchester. These ties to the region are important to Brown Shipley and they couldn’t be more pleased to associate themselves with the Gold Standard here at Haydock Park which ensures owners and trainers visiting the racecourse will get the very best facilities.

Hospitality Options

Tables may also be available in one of our three restaurants, where special packages can be reserved at reduced prices for Owners and Trainers. We also have a number of Private Hospitality Boxes which may be available for hire. For further information, including prices, please contact the Sales Office on 01942 402 624.

It is advisable to book any of the above as far in advance as possible through the Sales Office, as places can get fully booked on busier meetings.


On arrival, owners will be able to collect six badges per runner, plus complimentary racecards from the main entrance building. Please bring your PASS card with you. If you have a requirement for one or two additional owners’ badges this will only be considered in advance of the meeting.

Please note also that badges will not be allocated to owners or trainers whose horses are non-runners after declarations. For any special requests, please contact Catherine Smith on 01942 402 609.

Dress Code

Please note that we will be operating a strict dress code in all the Owners and Trainers facilities and the County Enclosure. Dress requirements are smart casual, no denim jeans, t-shirts, tracksuits or training shoes. Please ensure that all of your party is aware of this, as visitors who do not adhere to this policy will be refused access.


Once again this season, we are making special efforts to keep trainers up-to-date with Going changes and weather forecasts. You can find the latest Going report on this website in each raceday's page or on our social media pages (Twitter and Facebook). 

Photographs and DVDs

Photographs from our course photographer John Grossick can be viewed here. A DVD of your race is also available to owners of horses that are placed and this will be presented on the day.
