At Down Royal we are proud to celebrate racing as the heart of our business and we believe that owners are integral to the future of horse racing.
All owners with a horse registered in training can enjoy complimentary access to Down Royal for 10 of our 12 race meetings (excludes Northern Ireland Festival of Racing).
To reflect this we provide top class facilities for owners on site. In 2011 we completed a £100,000 upgrade on our Owners facility at the course. All owners receive complimentary tea or coffee throughout racing and there are large plasma screens for viewing the races throughout the Owners facility along with a Tote facility. There is a large external viewing area overlooking the parade ring which is directly accessible from the Owners facility.
There is a dedicated Owners carpark on site which is staffed on racedays to ensure easy access at all times. Complimentary badges are given to Owners with a maximum of eight badges provided for syndicates or partnerships. We do accommodate additional requests for badges at a small fee where possible.
Down Royal has installed a new dedicated winner's enclosure where all the winning connections can congregate for photographs and celebrate with their horse. In addition, all winning owners are presented with a bottle of champagne, compliments of the racecourse and dvd's are available on request.
We are committed to providing the best possible experience for all visitors to Down Royal and we hope that our continual programme of investment accompanied by the upgrading of racing and prize money where possible, goes some way towards guaranteeing this.
