Following this afternoon’s announcements from the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) and Arena Racing Company (ARC), we can confirm that all horseracing fixtures across the Group will take place behind closed doors from Tuesday 17 March until at least the end of the month.
This includes fixtures here at Sedgefield Racecourse on Thursday 19 March.
We would like to apologise for the inconvenience this causes, but no one beyond the minimum essential staff required to operate the raceday will be admitted. Unfortunately, racehorse owners will not be permitted entry to the site, as will anyone who turns up on the day.
Anyone who has booked tickets or hospitality during this time will be offered to reschedule their booking or receive a full refund. In this instance, please contact the office on 01740 621925.
