Syndicates will be treated as one Owner. However, they are entitled to receive any additional Owners’ passes available after all Owners’ benefits have been accommodated (= 20 – Owners’ benefits, where the syndicate is treated and included as an Owner). If there are multiple syndicates, any additional Owners’ Enclosure passes will be distributed equally amongst the syndicates. NB: Passes issued to the syndicate manager or their pre-advised nominee. Syndicates will be treated as one Owner. Therefore individual Members’ passes permitted is based on the number of Owners in the horse. NB: Passes issued to syndicate manager or their pre-advised nominee

NB: The ATC may use its discretion to limit Mounting Enclosure passes to 200 Owners per race when large fields compete and/or a high proportion of horses in a race have multiple (10+) Owners. This is done for safety reasons.

Trackside Rules

For your safety and those around you additional measures have been put in place within the trackside viewing area at Royal Randwick.

Attendants at entry and exit points will direct you to the owners viewing area which is signed and is situated overlooking the winning horses stall. In order to remove horse and patron interaction there will be clear demarcation with ropes that will guide you away from potential hazards.

Owners wishing to view from the trackside area can enter and leave either by the pedestrian tunnel under the stand which links the Theatre of the Horse or by the gate at the Members Lawn on the Ground Level of the Queen Elizabeth II Grandstand.

There is also an escalator which can take you up from the Ground Level at the front of the Queen Elizabeth II Grandstand to the Owners' Viewing Deck on Level 1. The escalators are situated at the centre of the Grandstand inside the Members' Enclosure.

This Saturday at Royal Randwick will also see the opening of the new Longines Winning Owners Room, situated just inside the main entrance to the Chairman's Club, which will be in use for all future meetings.

Please be advised of how the new room will operate so that you can enjoy - in style - every moment of hopefully many wins at Royal Randwick for years to come:

  • After each race, winning owners and connections who have greeted their horse and jockey at the winner's stall will be escorted by a member of our sponsorship team up the new escalator at the front of the main grandstand, and along the stairs which lead directly up to the room.
  • The new escalator, which will operate in either direction, will allow easier access to and from the owners viewing area, as well as the front of the grandstand and winner's stall, and the Longines Winning Owners Room.
  • Those winning owners not at the winner's stall can simply join the group inside the winners room by showing their pass to the ATC staff member stationed at the door.
  • ATC staff, including the usher stationed outside, will assist you from the winning owners room back to the members facilities prior to the start of the next race.

We thank you for your ongoing support and wish you every success with your horses.
