The meeting at Haydock Park on 30th October has now been moved to Carlisle Racecourse due to urgent track maintenance at Haydock. Your Haydock Park annual badge will however allow you access to Carlisle free of charge, so I do hope you’re able to make it up there for what should be a fantastic day. Geraldine McKay is the recently appointed General Manager at Carlisle Racecourse and is extremely keen to meet you all.
We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause however I do hope you have a great day.

By becoming a 2013 Annual Badgeholder at Haydock Park Racecourse not only will you receive entry into 33 days of first-class flat and jump racing, but you will also receive a host of other benefits which will include:
During the year there will once again be a number of Annual Badgeholders’ races throughout the year. This will give you the chance to go into the Parade Ring before a race and help choose the best turned out horse or make a presentation afterwards to the winning owner in the Winner’s Enclosure. Details of how you get involved will be included in the Raceday guide on the days in question.
Look behind the Scenes:
On four selected racedays (two flat & two jumping) there will be a chance for you to have a look behind the scenes and meet some of the people involved in the smooth running of a day’s racing. These tours will be more comprehensive than in previous years and again full details (including timings) will be included in the Raceday guide.
Going to the Start:
There will be an opportunity on most racedays for a small number of you to accompany the Starter to the start of a race. Places need to be booked in advance and for further details you are asked to contact Paul.
At selected racedays, we will be giving you the chance to meet and put questions to a number of people involved in racing such as an owner, trainer, jockey, commentator, etc. in between the races. This has proved to be very popular in the past and we intend to repeat the format on a couple of racedays next year.
We are sure that you will be delighted to hear that the tipping competitions which have proved very popular in the past will be re-instated for the next flat season. All you have to do is select one horse running at Haydock on each day and post your entry in the special competition box outside the Booking Office before the first race. The person who returns the largest profit to a £1 level stake during the season will win a free Annual Badge for the following year.
We are currently formulating plans for this year. We invite all our Annual Badgeholders to get in touch with Paul and let him know what activities you would like to see invluced in the 2013 programme of events.
In the past we organised stable visits, a racing trip to Ireland, the Haydokc horse, your own Badgeholders races, behind the scenes tours at Haydock on both racedays and non-racedays, as well as the popular tipping competition both on the flat and over the jumps.
Our Club Manager, Paul Clarkson, coordinates all the club’s activities and ensures that Badgeholders receive first-class treatment.
Annual Badges can be purchased directly by cash, cheque, credit or debit card.
A Junior Annual Badge is also available at a cost of £100 per person (maximum age 21 or under – proof of date of birth is required when booking).
Annual Badges are strictly non-transferable and are issued in the name of the Badgeholder and cannot be passed to another racegoer.
Car Parking: The purchase of an annual badge includes a car park label that allows parking in ONE OF THREE reserved car parks on a first-come, first-served basis. We would like to point out that on particular racedays throughout the year, there is a high demand for parking and early arrival is recommended to avoid disappointment. We would also request that your car park label is displayed clearly in your car for the duration of your stay.
