Claims In Selling & Claiming Races

The procedures for Claiming and Selling Races have changed. The only Claims which will be accepted on the racecourse are Friendly Claims, or hostile Claims made by Licensed Trainers. All claims must be made within 5 minutes of the ‘Weighed In’. No additional period is allowed for Friendly Claims. No premium will be payable in the event of unopposed Friendly Claims.
Registered Owners, Licensed and Permitted trainers may also claim by telephone, to Weatherbys on 01933 303080. Such claims must be made within 15 minutes of the start of the race. A BHB Security Code is required (to apply, contact Weatherbys on 01933 440077).

Emergency Procedures

In the unlikely event of an incident which necessitates the partial or total evacuation of any area of the racecourse, announcements will be made over  the Public Address System and visually on the Television Monitors. The evacuation plans have been designed to usher you to a safe area by our stewards who can be identified by their green jackets or staff badges aided by the uniform security personnel. Please take your belongings with you and follow the directions of the staff as quickly and quietly as possible. It might give you some peace of mind if you pre-plan and agree a meeting place in case your party becomes separated.
These are just precautionary notes and we trust you will follow the management’s and staff’s instructions at all times to prevent accident or injury to yourself or others. Please remember in the event of an incident to TAKE YOUR POSSESSIONS WITH YOU AND FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS OF THE STAFF AS QUICKLY AND QUIETLY AS POSSIBLE
